Two types of Neurological disorders exist:
Peripheral nerve system damage
Central nerve system damage
The Peripheral nerve system is affected by peripheral nerves (no damage to the brain) like Sciatica problems or temporary paralysis of the muscle due to injury or an accident.
The treatment for these types of problems involves specialised equipment to stimulate the nerve and to prevent muscle atrophy (muscle wasting).
Central nerve system damage occurs due to brain injury or Spinal cord injury such as strokes, MS, ALS, Alzheimer etc.

Specialized protocols are used under the supervision of specialized personnel to prevent and rectify problems in posture, e.g core stability, balance programs and strengthening.
