Parkinson's Physiotherapy

PARKINSON’S PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES IN YOUR OWN HOME LIVE A FULL & ACTIVE LIVE WITH PARKINSON’S WITH THE HELP OF OUR SPECIALIST SERVICES

As providers of expert physiotherapy at home, the team at Therapies on Thames have helped many patients with Parkinson’s Disease continue to lead a full and active life after their diagnosis.

How does Parkinson’s Disease affect the body?
Parkinson’s Disease presents a variety of physical symptoms, including tremors, issues with speech, muscle cramps, rigidity, sleep, fatigue, bowel and bladder problems, issues with swallowing and eating, eye problems, dizziness and falling, low blood pressure, restless legs, and more. Not all patients will experience every symptom, and the severity of those symptoms can vary greatly between patients.

Does exercise help Parkinson’s disease?
Exercise and physiotherapy cannot hope to relieve all of those symptoms, of course, but it has been shown to have a positive impact on many patients’ day-to-day lives. It can increase flexibility and improve balance, both reducing the risk of a fall and allowing patients to move more smoothly and quickly. The right stretches and positions can help in the maintaining of good posture and flexible joints, as well as relieving stiffness and reducing the likelihood of muscle cramps.

How can a physiotherapist help?
A physiotherapist is able to assess the impact Parkinson’s is having on your movements and your day-to-day tasks, and offer advice and therapy, where appropriate. This may involve an exercise regime that you can complete at home, or low-impact exercises and sports like tai chi, yoga, or golf.

They can show you some effective stretching techniques to maintain suppleness in your limbs and muscles, as well as teaching you techniques to help make everyday movements (such things as standing up, sitting down, and walking) easier for you.

Physiotherapy can also offer relief from pain as a result of Parkinson’s, using a range of techniques, depending on the cause in your specific case. Additionally, they can teach you positioning, or other techniques, to improve your breathing, and to prevent issues with circulation.

At Therapies on Thames, we provide expert physiotherapy at home in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. If you or a loved one are suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and would like to know more about the services we offer, get in touch with a member of our friendly and professional team today.

ABOUT OUR PARKINSON’S PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES IN BERKSHIRE

TAILORED TREATMENT

TAILORED TREATMENT

Our treatments are tailored to each of our client’s specific needs, depending on their issues and the goals they want to achieve. Our treatments are designed to help you move around your home with greater ease and less pain.

All treatments start with one of our physios assessing your needs and developing a personalised treatment plan, specifically for you.

COMBINED APPROACH

COMBINED APPROACH

Our physiotherapists work closely with our occupational therapists, so we can not only treat your physical issues but also help you manage daily tasks such as using your bath or shower or getting in and out of a car. This means our therapists have access to the right equipment and treatment techniques to help you return to a more independent life.

Our combined approach to treating you holistically, means that we treat the whole person and not just the injured part.

TREATMENT AT HOME

TREATMENT AT HOME

We offer our treatments in the comfort of your own home, so you don’t have to travel to us. Our caring physios come to you because it’s less traumatic and more convenient and comfortable, especially if you struggle with mobility.

We can also treat you in a care home, private hospital, hospice, or wherever you are in the community. Due to our experience in occupational therapy, we can also suggest or provide other rehabilitation services that may benefit you.

LET US HELP YOU

We’re here to help restore your strength and get you standing on your own again.

All of our therapists are experienced, DBS checked professionals, who love nothing more than enabling people to live life the way they want to – independently at home!
