So what exactly is a neuro physio?
A Neuro Physio is a physiotherapist who has specialised in treating people with physical problems as a result of a neurological condition.
To practise in the UK, all physiotherapists are legally required to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). The HCPC is a regulator of health and care professions and everyone registered must have met their standards to enable safe effective practise.
The vast majority of UK physiotherapists are also members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (MCSP) which is their professional, educational and trade union body.
In order to say you are a neuro physio, no specific extra qualifications are required. However, the majority of physiotherapists describing themselves as neuro physios will have had clinical experience in treating people with neurological conditions in a variety of settings. They will also likely have attended a range of relevant courses and may have additional qualifications.
So, if you have a neurological condition and need some physiotherapy, a neuro physio is a physiotherapist most likely to have experience treating other people like you.
