Welcome to The Neuro Hub
The Neuro Hub is a unique, specialist rehabilitation clinic/gym. It houses technology, which delivered by skilled and experienced therapists, will enhance the rehabilitation journey and outcome for all our clients, enabling them to translate the skills they re-learn following their injury, into their lives and leisure in the community.
Welcome to The Neuro Hub
Based in Gateshead in the Northeast of England, the Neuro Hub was opened in 2016, and has grown into a cutting-edge technology enhanced facility.
- innovative, evidence-based rehabilitation for people with neurological impairments

Anyone who has experienced a neurological insult or traumatic loss of limb can access this facility. We will be able to assess and offer tailor made rehabilitation programmes. We treat a wide range of conditions and listed below is just some of them, however it is always better to give us a call to discuss your needs
- Head Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury
- Acquired Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Upper Limb Loss
- Lower Limb Loss
- Multiple Sclerosis
- MND including PLS
- Poly traumatic Injury
How does this work?
Research has proven time and again that individualised, targeted rehabilitation at a clinically meaningful intensity can improve functional ability.
Our highly specialised therapists will utilise a combination of “hands on” therapy and technology to address the issues identified in the assessment.
Your progress can be taken into a community setting and we work closely with local facilities to enable integration back to chosen fitness and leisure activities.
Enabling our clients to function in their own homes can be achieved as our therapists work in the community to facilitate activities of daily living that will increase independence.
Baseline ability will be measured and monitored closely throughout the rehabilitation journey to track progress and encourage positivity!
This amounts to enabling our clients to
- Improve their physical skills such as strength, balance and stamina
- Improve physical efficiency and reduce effort during such activities as walking, shopping and engaging in sports
- Improve hand and arm function including shoulder and arm function and enhancing hand and finger dexterity
What rehabilitation programmes are offered by The Neuro Hub
Our programmes look at four key areas of rehabilitation
All our programmes are unique and are built to meet the needs of each client. Depending upon their individual needs, some clients undertaking one programme and others complete all four.
