What Is Epilepsy?

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Delhi
What Is Epilepsy?

A neurological disorder is characterized by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, and convulsions associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

Role of Physiotherapy in Epilepsy

  1. It helps improve strength, mobility, and increases the range of motion and sphere of movement.
  2. It helps improve sensory awareness, response, balance, and coordination.
  3. It helps to improve quality of movement and physical performance.

The Goals of Physiotherapy

  1. To develop strength enough to support one’s head upright
  2. To have balance and motor control to maintain their trunk at midline
  3. To use many different muscle groups
  4. To assist necessary motion in their trunk and extremities
  5. The physiotherapists write short-term goals for each of the items on the problem list that need to be covered to help the patient achieve the long-term goals
  6. To understand what the patient is good at and does well
  7. To focus on what he or she capable of doing rather than on what they can’t do
  8. To educate and provide awareness with a view to prevent injury. For example, advice on special swimming equipment to prevent drowning if he/she gets seizures in the pool

Physiotherapy treatment for a healed fracture consists of strengthening muscles that have got weak from being immobilized and stretching muscles that are stiff owing to being in the cast for a long period of time.

Physical exercise improves fitness, energy, and mood and even relieves stress. Improving overall health and wellbeing in this way can help reduce seizures. It can also help people feel more in control of their health. It also helps release ‘feel good’ hormones into the brain, helps keep the muscles active, reduces fat levels in the body, and increases oxygen flow to the brain. It can also increase the bone density. A research showed that regular sessions of aerobic exercise (for example running, walking, swimming, cycling) for 60 minutes, twice a week, for 15 weeks resulted in a significant reduction in the number of seizures they had.

Drink water, diluted fruit juice, or squash while exercising to help replace the fluids and body. Do not exercise straight after a meal.

Team sports or group activities such as walking or gardening groups can also be a good way of increasing self-confidence. Making new friends may help with any feelings of isolation. Most sports, including contact sports like football, hockey, basketball and rugby, have not shown to increase the chance of someone having a seizure, but contact sports come with an increased risk of head injuries, which could affect people with a history of epilepsy. Protective sports headgear helps to reduce this risk.

Motor Neuron Disease And Physiotherapy - All You Need To Know!

Motor neuron disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects motor neurons in the brain, spinal cord and cells that control voluntary muscles. In motor neuron disease, the working of muscles, therefore, stops which leads to muscle weakness and decreased function. When the movement of part of the body is restricted the joints become stiff, painful and can cause muscle tightness which hampers day-to-day activities. When a particular muscle is weakened which is under control of motor neuron, daily exercise keeps weakened muscle strong.

As such there is no cure for motor neuron disease physiotherapy helps to maintain the quality of life by keeping you mobile. Strengthening healthy muscles which are not yet affected helps to compensate for the muscles that are weakened. Daily exercise improves muscle elasticity thus improving range of movement for joints and preventing muscle tightness.

How Physiotherapy Treatment helps?

  1. Physiotherapy helps to reduce stiffness, pain, muscle spasms and increase mobility.
  2. Breathing exercises reduce the chance of chest infections and help with chest clearance.
  3. Exercise helps to ease movement of limbs and body enable us to perform daily activities. Exercise helps to maintain muscle strength, maintains range of motion, and keeps muscle flexibility thereby reducing spasm. It increases the energy levels.
  4. Physiotherapist gives advice on positioning and posture.
  5. Advising on various modes of compensation for loss of movement and conserving energy.
  6. Providing walking aids which will help to keep you mobile and as safely as possible.
  7. Teaching how to pace up your exercise and to stop when you start experiencing pain.
  8. Advise, to be given for pain relief.
  9. Physiotherapy helps in maintaining posture and positioning by keeping a straight back and neck in standing and sitting. Collars, splints and specialised chair are beneficial to maintain posture.

What exercises should be performed?

  1. Breathing exercises help to breathe easier thus clearing the chest.
  2. Performing range of motion exercises to maintain mobility in your joints. First one joint is exercised in a systematic manner then the other joint is exercised. The aim of performing range of motion is that it prevents stiffening of joints.
  3. Massage and other hands-on technique is performed to increase circulation thereby reducing pain aiding relaxation, assisting muscle tone and thus reducing stiffness. It relieves tension from muscle cramps.

The exercise has been categorised into 3 categories-

  1. Active exercises to be performed where the patient is able to make his muscles perform without anyone’s help. 
  2. Passive exercises to be carried out wherein you are not able to move your joint the helper guides joints by supporting and moving your limb.

Do not perform exercise vigorously which will cause you pain. If you experience pain contact your physiotherapist.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
