The physiotherapist with all those physical means at his disposal, takes care of, assists and helps the patient to return to his life as well as possible, to achieve the highest degree of well-being and quality of life. With the use of appropriate physiotherapeutic techniques, the injured body region or regions are integrated, either with complete recovery or by learning strategies for this.
Pathologies/Diseases to be treated:
Fractures, Dislocations, Locomotor surgeries in both the adult and the child.
Adult and Child Respiratory Pathology
Circulatory pathology, both primary and secondary to other pathologies
Pathology of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ).
It consists on a technique of physiotherapeutic treatment for Myofascial Trigger Points (MTPs) or contractures. A MTPs is a hyperirritable nodule located in a taut palpable band formed withinmuscle fibers.
Dry Needling consists of applying a mechanical stimulus with a needle without the aid of infiltrating any chemical substance such as anesthetics, saline, NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) which conducts to elimination of these points, that are generally the cause for local and refered pain and may be very limiting our activities of daily life.[/showhide]
Techniques of Manual Therapy and massage are the basis of the treatment of pain and dysfunctions of the body. They are procedures applied manually and / or instrumentally and are based on the most available scientific evidence.
These techniques aim to recover the movement when the joints present with a restriction, to relieve muscular and joints pain (etc) and, as a result, to improve the functionality of the individual.[/showhide]
The R.U.S.I. (Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging) is a technique of assessment and evaluation that uses the ultrasound as the main tool to detect disorders in soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments …) in an accurate and scientific way.
As a static and dynamic study, it allows the development of a treatment through biofeedback techniques, in whose the patient actively participates in its healing and is capable of making a follow-up of his/her evolution.[/showhide]
Simultaneous process of evaluation and treatment in which, through sustained movements and pressures, applied directly to the fascial system, the liberation of the restrictions of the myofascial system can be achieved in order to recover the functional balance of the body.
Proper tissue mobility is essential for proper exchange of body fluids. The restrictions created by the lack of movement of the myofascial system promote the creation of contractures and may lead to deterioration of the quality of muscle fibers[/showhide]
Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual technique by which we make an assessment process of the lymph. It consists of manipulations aimed to activation of interstitial fluid and lymph movements through the lymphatic vessels.
This treatment is performed when there is a pathology of the lymphatic system, either primary (hereditary due to poor formation of the lymphatic system) and secondary (post-phlebitis, lymph node involvement or surgical removal). This technique is part of the Complex Decompression Therapy that consists of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Bandage, Skin Care, general physiotherapy and postural treatment as well as dietary control.[/showhide]
Motor control and therapeutic exercise:
Movement is defined as the ability of a living being to move through its environment without any difficulty. In relation to motor control and exercise, two important aspects must be considered: the control applied to the maintenance of posture and balance and the control applied to a specific movement.
Motor learning aims to train and reeducate the coordination of the joints and, especially, the muscles that are activated and allows you to initiate and maintain movement in a healthy way.[/showhide]
Therapeutic system that is based on the diagnosis and treatment of the morphological and mechanical alterations of the organism. It places a major emphasis on structural integrity; ie, on bones, muscles, joints and connective tissue; as its alteration can cause consecuences at any level.
Treatment of TMJ
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is responsible for the movement of the mandible and its most frequent alteration is the temporomandibular dysfunction syndrome, which is caused by a malfunction of the structures that make up the joint and that provoke its movement.
Manual therapy can help you restore the natural jaw movement and reduce pain through manual intraoral and extraoral techniques and joint mobilizations.[/showhide]
The nerves tend to suffer from limitations of mobility, either because of an intrinsic cause (inability to adapt elastically to movement or posture) or extrinsic (alteration of the relation of the nerve to the structures that surround it: muscles, fascia, ligaments, bone, etc.).
This limitation can be manifested as: Pain (allodynia, paroxysmal pain, electric shock, etc.), limitation of active or passive movement, muscular spasm responses or postural adaptations. Neuromeningeal mobilization is based on the mechanical stimulation of the nervous tissue by postures and movements of the rachis and limbs.[/showhide]
Part of the physiotherapy that, through electrical stimuli seeks to generate a physiological response in the body, contributing in those pathological processes that produce pain and favoring the repair and regeneration responses of the injured tissues. The currents used may be low, medium or high frequency and according to the parameters selected therapeutic objective will be different.
Among the most used currents in the physiotherapeutic field,
Currents of Träbert.
High voltage currents.
PHYSIOTHERAPY THERAPIES IN CHILDREN’S AGE:
Child physiotherapy: assesses the child as a whole, observing what his motor deficits are and working with him and his family to get closer, as far as possible, to normal kinesiological development.
Vojta Therapy: Vojta Therapy is a physiotherapy method that is used in infants, children, adolescents and adults who have central nervous system disorders and motor and postural disorders. It consists in provoking induced muscular movements after the stimulation of specific neuromuscular receptors, which causes an immobile arm to begin to move.
Osteopathy: treats the human being in a global way, as a whole, restoring the disturbed equilibrium through manual techniques directed to any of the affected tissues, be they of the musculoskeletal, visceral, nervous system, etc. It is a manual therapy that helps to alleviate, correct and recover musculoskeletal injuries and organic pathologies.
