In this fast paced changing world more people are experiencing chronic illness than ever before. The NHS is invaluable, yet struggling to keep up with demands, therefore for some people long term management of their condition via physical rehabilitation is not an option. Even if you someone is labelled with “no rehab potential” or have plateaued there is still hope moving forward.
It is cited in NICE (NHS protocol) guidelines that physical rehabilitation intervention is required for neurological conditions however there is not enough resources to keep up with the demand, many being labelled with “no rehab potential” and yet more can be done.
Rehabilitation requires repetitions and hard work, knowing how to gain this plus getting the right education is key to succeed in your rehabilitation programme. You need to get results that are cost effective, whilst gaining support and education enabling you to become empowered.
