Neurological rehabilitation explained – new films released today

We are pleased to announce the release of a further five films by our expert Consultants and Therapists. The Christchurch Expert Films have been produced in order to provide a detailed but accessible introduction to various concepts of neurological rehabilitation.

Aimed at professionals, family and friends of those with brain or spinal injuries or neurological conditions, the films are available free to watch, share and use via our website and on our YouTube channel.
The latest films explain the subjects of spinal injury, team working, assessment of disability, Huntington’s Disease, splinting and fatigue in the context of neurological rehabilitation. With thanks to Occupational Therapist Keira Stevenson, Physiotherapist Kiran Mattoru, Group Lead Therapist Gaynor Green, Registered Manager Jo Wilkins and Group Clinical Director, Professor Mike Barnes.
