UPPER LIMB INTENSIVE

An intensive therapy approach can benefit people with a neurological condition such as stroke or multiple sclerosis. Those who have some movement in their hand and arm and are determined to try and get more are often the people who benefit most.

Upper limb rehabilitation in Sydney

Many people do arm and hand exercises yet do not see the recovery they hoped for. It may be that the intensity is not high enough to drive re learning and neuroplastic change or that there is a limiting factor such as spasticity or pain that limits recovery. During an initial upper limb assessment with our therapist, we can establish and discuss if you would benefit from an intensive program.

We know from the literature and our own clinical experience, that up to 60% of people report ongoing problems with their arm and hand after a brain injury or stroke. It is the stroke-related physical impairments, such as muscle weakness, pain, and spasticity that can lead to a reduction in the ability to use the stroke-affected arm and hand in daily activities. In addition, the avoidance of using one’s stroke-affected arm is also very common. There is even a name for it “learned non-use syndrome”. Unfortunately, not using the stroke-affected arm can lead to a further loss in strength, range of motion, and functionality.

The Upper Limb Intensive Program is individually structured around your unique circumstances and you will receive a workbook outlining your goals and treatment. As long as you are practicing the right exercises for you every day, we can deliver the program in many different ways over shorter or longer time periods.

You have the opportunity each day to practice up to 3 hours at the clinic working on your program using our simple equipment and our upper limb technology. At home you will practice putting this training back in to everyday life. After the intensive program finishes, we will help you to continue your rehab.
