CARDIOLOGY REHABILITATION

CARDIOLOGY REHABILITATION

Cardiology rehabilitation specialises in the recovery of patients who have undergone major cardiovascular surgery or need stabilisation after acute syndromes (acute myocardial infarction) or heart failure. Along with drug therapy, which is necessary in this kind of patient, rehabilitation treatment aims at restoring a social, emotional and working life that is as appropriate as possible to his or her clinical condition.

PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC ASSESSMENT

PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC ASSESSMENT

information and being given the green light, the patient will be accompanied by the therapist from the get-go, starting with an initial interview, until the patient is discharged from the centre.

HIGH-POWER LASER TREATMENT

HIGH-POWER LASER TREATMENT

The term “laser” is an acronym for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” This abbreviation refers to a device that is able to emit a monochromatic and concentrated light beam via a rectilinear ray that is capable of inducing photochemical and photobiological variations in cell tissue. The high-power laser is able to distribute energy to almost all cell layers in need of treatment, in a gradual, consistent and controlled way, allowing for absorption depending on the needs of the individual.

TECARTHERAPY

TECARTHERAPY

The term “tecar,” or “tecar therapy,” refers to “Capacitive Resistive Energy Transfer.” This type of therapy, although used in Italy for quite some time, has only become popular in the last 20 years.

NEUROLOGICAL REHABILITATION

NEUROLOGICAL REHABILITATION

Neurological rehabilitation involves the rehabilitation of a patient who has or has suffered damage to their nervous system due to neurological diseases such as a stroke, Parkinson’s disease, hemiplegia or a spinal cord injury.

ORTHOPAEDIC REHABILITATION

ORTHOPAEDIC REHABILITATION

FUNCTIONAL REHABILITATION

FUNCTIONAL REHABILITATION

Depending on the problems detected in the assessment phase, the patient will begin his or her therapy journey together with a physiotherapist. This step-by-step journey involves the combination of manual therapy techniques and functional rehabilitation exercises. One won’t work without the other.

MASSAGE THERAPY

MASSAGE THERAPY

The term “massage therapy” comes from the Greek words “masso” and “therapeia.” The word masso means kneading or shaping with the hands, while the word therapeia means caring or healing.

ORTHOPAEDIC MANUAL THERAPY

The official definition of “orthopaedic manual therapy” was issued by the IFOMPT (International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists) in Cape Town in 2004, with the favourable vote of all member countries present at the General Meeting.

ULTRASOUND THERAPY

ULTRASOUND THERAPY

Ultrasound is defined as an acoustic vibration with frequencies above the limit of audible frequencies (i.e. greater than 20,000 Hz). Ultrasound waves have a frequency of between 1 MHz and 3 MHz and penetrate the tissue in order to perform mechanical, thermal and chemical actions, resulting in the acceleration of the metabolic processes of cells, increasing local thermal energy, stimulating circulation and neuromuscular and vascular tone.

SHOCK-WAVE THERAPY

SHOCK-WAVE THERAPY

Shock-wave therapy or “lithotripsy” is an electro-medical therapy that uses high-energy acoustic waves. Unlike ultrasound therapy, which generates a sinusoidal waveform, this type of wave form has a pulsating pattern.
