SWNODN Neuromuscular Physiotherapists
The South West Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network (SWNODN) employs three Paediatric Neuromuscular Physiotherapists and three Adult Neuromuscular Physiotherapists. The Neuromuscular Physiotherapists attend paediatric, transition and adult neuromuscular clinics around the region, providing specialist advice and support to patients, families and carers. They are also a valuable resource for advising, supporting and training local teams in various aspects of the specific physiotherapy assessment and management of neuromuscular conditions. Community Physiotherapists are always very welcome to attend specialist neuromuscular clinics along with their patients. The Neuromuscular Physiotherapists will liaise with Community Physiotherapists about their patients as necessary, but especially before and after a clinic visit.
Our Neuromuscular Physiotherapists may attend home or school visits, as required, with a Neuromuscular Advisor and can offer ongoing advice and support to patients and their families to help them deal with the physical challenges of a neuromuscular condition.
