New therapy centre to aid people with neurological conditions opens in East England
A new centre has opened in Saltney, Chester, which sits on the England-Wales border, to support people with neurological conditions called the Neuro Therapy Centre.
Over the last six months, the Neuro Therapy Centre has been busy upgrading and reconfiguring its facilities to provide an improved and larger physiotherapy treatment space and gym. The Centre has also developed a dedicated counselling room for patients.
The facilities were opened by the Centre’s trustees alongside a crowd of members on the opening day who were eager to try out the new equipment.
Jane Johnston-Cree, Centre Director of the Neuro Therapy Centre, told Leader Live: “We’ve had a fantastic reaction from our members this week when they have seen the new facilities.
“We have increased the number of services we offer over the years as well as the number of people we support. These redeveloped facilities will enable us to be able to support more people with neurological conditions in the region.”
The new physiotherapy suite contains various treatment beds and specialist equipment to improve clients’ balance and movement. Additionally, the upgraded gym also has more equipment, including a new exercise bike, rowing machine and a Nordic cross trainer.
There is also some new group gaming software which will enable members to take part in group cycling therapy.
The Neuro Therapy Centre supports people with a wide range of neurological conditions, such as MS, Parkinson’s Disease, Fibromyalgia, Motor Neuron Disease, and Huntington’s Disease.
Jane added: “We’d like to say a massive thank you to all our funders and suppliers who have made this work possible. It is going to make a huge difference to our Centre and to us supporting people with neurological conditions.
“Regular exercise and physiotherapy can help people with long-term conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s manage the pain and fatigue they experience and also helps to keep them mobile.”
The project was funded through Sport Wales, The Williams Family Foundation, Ursula Keyes Trust and MediCash.
