Neurotherapy Worx

Specialist neurological treatment centre launched in Appley Bridge

Neurotherapy WorX, a physiotherapy practice specialising in neurological therapies is expanding into new premises. Their highly qualified team of seven people offer a wide range of neurological therapy services, including those for traumatic brain injury and a wide range of neurological conditions.

Their spacious new premises are located near junction twenty-seven of the M6 on Hall Lane, Appley Bridge, Wigan. The entire property is ideally suited to offering neurological therapeutic services, it’s fully accessible throughout, with accessible toilets to suit people with mobility problems and who are wheelchair dependant. Their new location benefits from ample parking, a gym space, three therapy rooms, an outdoor space and there’s even plans to have a café next door.

Their busy team of seven people all have different specialist interest areas within the neurological physiotherapy specialism. These include paediatric, mental health, palliative care, sports, hydrotherapy, specialist medical devices and postural seating specialist.

Neurotherapy WorX owner Sarah Wilkinson shares her thoughts on their expansion:

“Our vision has always been to challenge the norms and change the way we deliver neurological physiotherapy. Having clinic space will now enable us to deliver our sessions at a much-increased frequency, leading to better patient outcomes. We’ve also boosted the number of repetitions and intensity of training to deliver results much sooner. Previously we were only able to deliver a programme of therapy once or twice a week, over a longer period of time but by delivering therapy almost daily for a month, we’ve seen patients achieve much stronger outcomes and much more quickly. They recover faster, gain their mobility back and boost their mental health too.

We’ve also kept ourselves up to date with the latest technical and medical advances within our field, known as neurotechnology. We’ve been able to make good use of a range of specially adapted devices that support our neurological patients during their therapy. These include the Fesia Grasp, which electrically stimulates the wrist and hand, GripAble device which supports upper limb rehabilitation and the THERA-Trainer tigo which is an active-assisted bike to help improve range of movement, strength and fitness at both upper and lower limbs. These devices enable our clients to achieve results and make progress much more quickly. They empower their rehabilitation and receive fantastic feedback.”

When it first launched, Neurotherpy WorX didn’t have an ideal start to life. It started the exact same month as the Covid19 pandemic began. As a brand-new business, it didn’t qualify for financial support from the government. Their team also had to find creative ways to safely treat their patients, many of them vulnerable people, during the lockdowns. None of this held them back, the business continued to grow from strength to strength as can be seen from their expanding team, steady growth and the opening of their new specialist treatment centre.
