Among the conditions treated by our PM&R specialists are:
- Physical Rehabilitation program to Neurological cases as Post stroke, Spinal cord injuries, Nerve injuries, spasticity, Parkinsonism and Multiple Sclerosis.
Stroke:A stroke is caused when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced which deprives brain tissue from oxygen and nutrients. Then brain cells begin to die. A stroke is a medical emergency. Quick treatment is vital. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include trouble with speaking and understanding, Paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg, trouble with walking and /or abnormalities in urination and defecation. Early rehabilitation improves recovery, increases plasticity and diminishes complications. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include trouble with speaking and understanding, Paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg, trouble with walking and /or abnormalities in urination and defecation.
- Physical Rehabilitation program to sports injuries.
Sport Rehabilitators help people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system. They help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions
- Physical Rehabilitation program to pre and post orthopedic surgeries as knee or hip replacement
The postoperative functionality of the hip or knee replacement is closely related to proper physiotherapy. A good range of motion, sufficient pain reduction and minimum disruption to the muscle tissues are conditions allowing the patients to perform individualized muscle strengthening exercises and to exercise the newly gained mobility. The rehabilitation sessions during early postoperative period leads to successfulmanagement of the patient and his early recovery as well as return to normal life activities.
- Physical Rehabilitation program to Rheumatic diseases as rheumatoid arthritis
The rehabilitation program of patients with rheumatoid arthritis is aimed to decrease the potential long-term disabilities as decreased flexibility, muscle atrophy,deformities decreased muscle strength and reduced cardiovascular endurance. Deficit in such areas will lead to functional compromise and poor quality of life. Therefore, a multidisplinary approach utilizing medications and rehabilitative techniques is necessary. Fortunately, under proper counseling, patients with rheumatoid arthritis can safely exercise, improving overall physical fitness, diminish incidence of deformities, greater ease for activities of daily living and an improved sense of well being.
- Physical Rehabilitation program to osteoarthritis affecting different joint and back pain
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic joint condition and leading cause of disability.
A joint is the site where two bones come together. The ends of the two bones are covered with protective tissue called cartilage. In OA, this cartilage breaks down, causing the bones within the joint to rub together which can cause pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. It most commonly affects knees, hips aswell as back and neck. OA occurs mostly in older people, but it can occur in adults of any age.
Rehabilitation are important in the treatment of osteoarthritis and can help you achieve and maintain optimal mobility, helps to increase flexibility, maintain range of motion of the joint, strengthen surrounding muscles, decrease associated inflammation, diminish pain and improve overall fitness.
- Physical Rehabilitation program to pediatric cases with physical disabilities
Pediatric rehabilitation encompasses a broad spectrum of conditions and treatment approaches. The two primary categories of conditions treated in most outpatient clinics are orthopedic and neuro developmental.
Orthopedic conditions in children can be congenital, acquired due to injury, or developed through repetitive strain or postural misalignment. management which focuses on educating parents and caregivers about proper positioning, age-appropriate activities, and a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises.
Additionally, children are becoming increasingly likely to develop neck and back pain due to prolonged passive positioning and excessive screen-time when using tablets, phones, laptops, and video games. We address these issues using a variety of techniques such as taping, massage, and the use of modalities to protect the injured area and reduce pain. Innovative functional strengthening and flexibility exercises are necessary to effectively engage younger children and teach good habits to help decrease the symptoms and prevent future episodes.
- Physical Rehabilitation Program to geriatric disability
Rehabilitation maintains functional independence in the elderly. Essential to geriatric rehabilitation is communication, specifically improving any sensory impairment, including those related to vision and hearing. The prevention of falls and osteoporosis can improve the patient’s health and longevity.
