Therapy per Stage of Disease

Year: 2016
Neurological physiotherapy promotes movement and quality of life in patients who have had severe brain or spinal cord damage from trauma, or who suffer from neurological diseases such as Machado-Joseph Disease, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. The MJD Foundation conducts a program of regular strengthening and conditioning exercises, conducted ‘on country’ and using gym equipment, as well as individual home programs under the umbrella of its ‘staying stronger for longer’ therapy program. This medical protocol outlines the MJDF’s physiotherapy program per stage of the disease.
