Exercise therapy is a therapeutic concept for physical issues. The therapy is supported by physical treatments like heat, cold, electrotherapy manual technique and ultrasound and it includes guidance for self-exercising. Exercise therapy affects the functioning of inner organs and mental capacity. It aims at the reduction of pain and the prevention of stiffness.
Is a rhythmic stroking massage used to eliminate obstructions in the lymph system and stimulate it while flushing out body toxins. In this massage, gentle pressure transports bodily fluid surrounded by tissue cells in the direction of the central lymph node regions. Lymph drainage is a proven method, especially after breast cancer operations and for rheumatic diseases, headaches and lymphatic obstruction.
This technique will activates lymph flow through the lymphatic vessels thus reducing edema. The Complex Physical Decongestion therapy (CPE) additionally involves bandaging, special exercise techniques and the use of a specific Electrical stimulation before or after the massage.
In physical therapy treatment based on neurophysiology, pathologically disturbed mobility patterns are improved or returned to normal by taking into account the naturally given mechanisms of the nervous system (e.g., stimulus response pattern).
This therapeutic method is indicated for brain, spinal cord or spinal (affecting the spinal column) related complaints, for peripheral (external) paralyses as well as atrophic (wasting away) or dystrophic (abnormal development) muscle changes.
Therapeutic massage technique includes all known massage techniques that free accumulated toxins and recover the muscles soreness. Individual muscle groups are remobilized and made supple with pressure and movement. Superficial or deep release will promote normal movement of joints.
Using this technique, the disturbed sensorimotor and muscular coordination disorders are treated by enhancing the function of the proprioceptors (deep sensors of the muscles, tendons and joints) with external touch, visual and acoustic stimulation. The goal is to recover sensorimotor integrity.
With the help of PREMEDION® Physical Therapists, you will be shown scientifically evident electrotherapy protocols to:
- Alleviate, control and manage pain.
- Stimulate locomotors and functional activities via Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES).
- Strengthening of weak muscles.
- Introduce topical medications (Iontophoresis).
It is a conservative cold application therapy. Ice therapy is used to decrease swelling, inflammation and pain associated with Physical conditions. It is typically used the first 4 weeks after an injury or surgery.
Generally produces three to four stage sensations; first a mild sensation of coldness, followed by a stinging, then burning or aching feeling and finally a numbness.
A minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.
Cold is extremely useful in the acute phase of common inflammatory conditions such as bursitis, tenosynovitis and tendonitis.
The PREMEDION® Professionals, taking care of your physical health and well being, may prescribe for you the use of sonic waves to treat your physical ailments, pain and introduce the suitable topical medication.
A tailored therapeutic movement pattern could also be used during therapy session. Ultrasound is a great modality in providing a deep thermal therapy and micro-massage effects.
Natural fango is a form of heat therapy in which an increase of the body temperature over the normal temperature is achieved externally.
Natural fango is mineral mud from volcanic thermal springs that we use in packs that are heated and placed on your body.
For pain, rheumatic complaints and inflammation, natural fango increases circulation, stimulates the metabolism, relaxes muscles and relieves pain.
The moist heat application is soothing and relaxing technique it will also prepare the treated region for other interventions (preheating).
Widening of blood vessels will occur and blood circulation is promoted.
The layer that surrounds your muscles is called myofascia.
When the myofascia is stressed from overuse or trauma it can tear and adhere together.
These adhesions are called "trigger points" and can prevent the muscles from working well.
Trigger points lead to an increase in muscle stiffness and tenderness and a decrease in range-of-motion. In addition the discomfort from trigger points can radiate pain, T.Points are hyperirritable and can cause local or radiating pain.
During TPPT, Manual application of continuous pressure until the pain diminishes also to break down the adhesions.
Moist Pre-heating is commonly applicable.
Precribed strength and coordination training on devices for the lower and upper extremities as well as for the core muscles.
Various parts of the body and muscle groups are each successively trained on different platforms, with the special goals of stabilization of joints, strengthening of connective tissue and promoting performance.
In sling table therapy, the whole body or parts of the body are suspended in slings, which provide relief for the spine and joints. Painful movements are significantly relieved and performed as if gravity is omitted.
The condition is similar to floating in water. With extension treatment, the therapist improves the patient’s mobility through targeted stretching and extending the joints and muscles.
Manual traction force is applied by the Physical Therapist to reduce joins compression for the limbs joints or vertebral spine.
Relieving the compressed nerve root might occur and subsequent radiating pain and nerve irritation will subside.
A non invasive motorized traction force is applied gently to your spine, this will slightly stretch the spine, it can be applied to the lower back or the neck but the whole spine is affected by the gliding force.
After Physical Examinations and screenings, the P.T will calculate the needed force to be applied for safely decompress your spine.
This force will take the pressure off the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated discs might retract and normal movement of the nutrients rich fluids into the disc will occur.
Referred pain will be controlled Wear and tear of the joints is contained and further degeneration is prevented.
