Guillain-Barré Syndrome

What is Guillain-Barré Syndrome?

It is a rare but serious autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks healthy nerve cells in your peripheral nervous system (nerves outside of your brain and spinal cord). GBS can range from mild to severe symptoms, where a person is unable to breathe independently. Fortunately, most people recover from GBS but some people still have a degree of weakness following recovery.

How Does Neurotherapy Treatment Work?

Neurotherapy Process

We hold a brief conversation with you about what problems you struggle with and how you need help

We capture your personal details, discuss the costs and timings and arrange an appointment

During your first appointment, you share your goals with us and we conduct a physical assessment

We work with you to build a personalised treatment plan, during a scheduled period of intervention

We may prescribe some exercises to help you to address weakness, move more efficiently and improve your quality of life

We regularly review your progress and adjust your goals as you make improvements
