    Exercise For Neurological Conditions

    Exercising for all individuals provides benefits such as improved sleep, better cardiovascular health, weight management and reduced symptoms of anxiety and/or depression.

    Individuals with neurological conditions may experience certain challenges in living with a condition or injury which can weaken them for periods of time or require them to need help for most everyday tasks. This will vary from one diagnosis to another and the severity of the condition or injury. This can cause the individual to lead a much more sedentary lifestyle which is turn impacts their physical and mental wellbeing.

     


    Challenges

    Individuals with a neurological condition may experience challenges with:

    • Fatigue
    • Weakness
    • Deconditioning
    • Balance
    • Co-ordination
    • Posture
    • Tremors
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Spasticity
    • Pain

    How can PhysioFunction help with Neurological Conditions

    Some research suggests a strong link between physical exercise and the prevention or delay of some neuro-degenerative symptoms for conditions such as Parkinsons or MS. Exercise for individuals with a neurological condition can also improve walking, balance and strength as well as a reduction in muscle wasting or stiffness.

    As fatigue can be a common challenge with individuals who have a neurological condition or injury, pacing can be a helpful way to maximise energy. Pacing means spreading out activity and alternating it with rest periods so that the individual can continue for longer.

    Exercise is also known to improve mood, anxiety and depression symptoms in all individuals.
