Thermotherapy – reduces muscle spasm, pain relief in neurological or musculoskeletal conditions by increasing the circulation and tissue temperature to the targeted areas by applying hot moist packs

 

Cryotherapy  –  effective treatment of soft tissue injuries, it reduces the inflammation, improves the range of motion and alleviates the pain

  • Cold packs as local application
  • Cryo-massage
  • Game ready machine
  • Functional maintenance of ADL’s
  • Occupational training, psychology (within limits of knowledge and scope of practice), recreation and sports participation
  • Splinting
  • Sensory integration
  • Cognitive, evaluation and training
  • Recommendations for and training in the use of adaptive equipment

  • Prescription and training of orthotics

For following pathologies:

  • Aphasia
  • Apraxia
  • Post Stroke
  • Dysarthria
  • Dyslexia
  • Dysphagia

Assessing into diagnose for patients that presents: difficulties in speech, language, cognition, voice, fluency of speech and swallowing

 

Techniques used:

  • Flash cards,
  • Drawings
  • FES for small muscles
  • Tongue exercises
  • Oro-motor specific exercises
  • Diet for patients with swallowing disorders

Education and prevention starts within the initial assessment stage and goes on throughout the whole rehabilitation program by correcting and adjusting patient`s poor postures and body mechanism during working periods, also recreational period of time

 

Modalities include:

  • Leaflets and handouts
  • Discussions
  • Practical demonstration
