What brain injury physiotherapy
do our patients receive at Parramatta?
Depending on the severity of the brain injury, many of the patients day to day activities may be affected. A neurological physiotherapist will identify any movement problems that have been caused by the TBI.
Whether it’s learning to sit up, get dressed, walk or run, brain physiotherapy can help the patient learn how to perform tasks again. This is done by practising movements to allow the brain to rewire itself so the patient can learn how to do these again automatically.
Our Parramatta practice offers comprehensive physiotherapy services, which will also include using hands-on massage techniques to treat TBIs and neurological conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should you have further questions please read through our frequently asked questions for more information.
How do you know if occupational therapy, physiotherapy or other medical attention is required for a TBI?
Sports injuries, car accidents or any kind of violent blow to the head will result in a TBI. If the person is suffering from nausea, dizziness, memory loss, or is unconscious, urgent medical attention is necessary.
It would be best to go directly to emergency services and thereafter depending on the degree of damage to the brain, will determine the correct rehabilitation path to be taken. It is important to work with your doctors who will refer you to either a physiotherapist or occupational therapist who specialises in TBIs. In some cases, it may be necessary to seek all these treatments.
Traumatic brain injury physiotherapy is necessary not only to build muscle strength and improve body movement but in some cases to relearn how to do basic daily movements. Without this rehabilitation, a return to normal life will be difficult. Building muscle strength and supporting the body to return to normal function will help prevent the patient from experiencing further injuries.
This will be determined by the severity of the brain injury and the commitment of the patient to rehabilitation. For minor brain injuries, a noticeable difference can be experienced in a matter of days, however, with major injuries, it can take a few weeks or months for a noticeable difference.
Although this may not be the primary treatment used for a TBI, these 2 treatments can be incorporated as additional treatment methods if they will support and improve the rehabilitation process.
