Intensive programs of physical training capacity, gait, mobility, balance, coordination and sensorimotor development, as well as teaching the patient and usual caregivers of facilitating strategies or movement adaptation to enhance functionality.
These programs aim to maximize movement quality and functional independence through training variability, specificity and intensity as a way to develop motor learning and autonomy in daily living activities.
The programs are developed in a controlled gym environment, close to reality, and in the aquatic environment (hydrotherapy).
Intensive programs of speech stimulation and training, language and communication in order to increase speech intelligibility and stimulate the communicative skills of the patient, as well as perform teaching and training of usual caregivers in order to enhance the communicative effectiveness of the patient.
Swallowing rehabilitation programs aimed at ensuring safety, nutritional support, pleasure and comfort of each meal, either through the implementation of specific exercise plans, or by teaching and training caregivers in the use of adaptation and compensation swallowing strategies.
Sessions are designed to ensure patients can continue to carry out activities of daily living or other occupations that they consider significant.
The sessions include evaluating the performance of activities of daily living and other activities where the patient has difficulties. A personalized intervention plan is developed and implemented to make the patient more agile and/or to reduce pain when carrying out activities and to assess and recommend structural modifications at home or support products.
Cognitive stimulation sessions seek to enhance brain function (e.g. memory, attention), mental capacity, and social interaction through a set of techniques, applied by psychologists. Cognitive training helps the patient to generate effective strategies for adapting to daily demands.
Currently used for the treatment of focal dystonias such as cervical dystonia, limb dystonia, oromandibular and laryngeal dystonia. It is also indicated in spasticity of post-stroke limbs, and may also, in selected cases, be indicated in spasticity secondary to other etiologies, such as multiple sclerosis, spinal-modular trauma, among others. More recently it has also shown effectiveness and has been approved for the treatment of severe forms of migraine. This treatment may also improve the quality of life of patients with secondary uncomfortable sialorrhea and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and stroke).
