PHYSIOTHERAPY / OSTEOPATHY
Due to its easy and immediate access, it has turned into the reference diagnostic, prevention, and treatment guide technique. It is a tool that allows to do a more objective assessment, making a qualitative step in exploration. In addition, it is also indispensable to conduct invasive treatment techniques with the most possible precision, which are called echo guided techniques.
If there is the suspicion of having any of the next pathologies, it is the indicated assessment technique.
- Muscle strain
- Tendinopathy (tendinitis)
- Ligament sprain or rupture
- Vascular pathologies (Deep vein thrombosis)
- Neural pathologies
In case of seeing that it corresponds to a medic competence, we don´t doubt on sending the patient to the best professionals, completing this way a multidisciplinary work amongst doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths, nutritionists, podiatrists, and rehabilitation team.
It is an invasive and non-painful technique that bases on treating the nervous system as responsible of possible local, segment or central disfunctions. Thanks to the neuromodulation changes are made in the “nervous current” to ensure that the nerve, which is equivalent to a copper cable in the electric current, may be in harmony and is capable of sending and receiving adequately the information without provoking any alteration.
Movement limitations such as shoulder abduction, cervical rotations, neural syndromes like carpal tunnel syndrome, or sciatica.
Treatment techniques in which needles are used to access certain tissues that are not palpable by hands.
It consists in the percutaneous application of a galvanic electric current stimulating the affected tissue directly through a needle.
This tool permits to deal with pathologies on soft tissue and to apply them a biologic treatment. Activates the first phase in the regenerative process, which is altered.
Its mayor indication are tendinopathies and the chronic fibrotic scars. Permits to destroy the degenerated tissue and cause a posterior inflammatory phase, which is necessary for the process of reparation. The healthy tissue is not compromised and the destroyed one is metabolized by the organism. It is crucial that this treatment must be followed by therapeutic exercise in the regeneratice phase.
Patellar tendinopathy, Achilles tendinopathy, supraspinous tendinopathy, etc.
Fibrotic scar tissue on the biceps femoral, rectus femoris, soleus, gastrocnemius etc.
The myofascial trigger points are nodules localized in a tense band of muscle fibres. These points can cause characteristic referred pain, hypersensitivity to the pressure or even motor disfunctions. With the dry needling, a needle is introduced on that trigger point reproducing a local spasm and thereby liberating the muscular tension.
Muscles such as trapezius, piriformis, quadriceps, soleus, etc.
BEING UPDATED ON THE LAST TECNOLOGY MAKES THE RECOVERY FASTER AND MORE EFFECTIVE.
It is based on a cellular therapy that with the application of heat in a determined frequency, intensity ant time accelerates the natural mechanisms of tissue repair so that the patient can recover as soon as possible. The objectives are the reduction of pain and inflammation, and to accelerate and enhance the processes of curation. It is very helpful as much in chronic and acute pain, in relaxing tense areas and especially on reducing the recuperation times y sporting pathologies.
INTRUMENTAL MYOFASCIAL FIBROLISIS
It is a myofascial technique which is applied with a hook shaped tool over the skin. The principal objective is to remove adherences and open muscular septums with the purpose of reducing the muscular and fascial tension and overload.
It is based on the application of progressive air at high pressure as much in superior and inferior limbs, that activates the lymphatic system enhancing the vascularity and the venous return, relieving like that the peripheric tiredness sensation and muscular overload.
IN CASES OF PAIN WITHOUT ANY TRAUMATISM RECORDED IN WHICH THE CAUSE IS NOT IDENTIFIED, AND THE IMAGE TESTS ARE NEGATIVE, THE OSTEOPATHY CAN BE THE SOLUTION.
“The osteopathy, in a context of a holistic patient’s approach, treats the patient as a whole.”
It is a therapeutic discipline and a combination of specific knowledge based on anatomy, physiology, and how do different tissues take part in the production of the disease and in the application on techniques to normalize the altered functions.
The osteopathic intervention makes a thorough functional diagnose which based on it uses a combination of methods and techniques with therapeutic and preventive purposes, that manually applied over, amongst other, muscular, articular, soft, nerve tissues, obtain in a direct or referred way, reactions that equilibrate and normalize the different alterations enhancing and resolving the clinical case, having a special impact on its pain manifestations.
It is orientated to act over the tissues that take part on the visceral functions, related fibrosus membranes, muscles, different layers of organ gliding, vascularization, nerves and all the tissues that ensure the organic functioning. Those have to be free on their anatomic paths, which does not always happen due to adherences, scarring and myofascial tractions that difficult the normal mobility of the viscera. The visceral manual techniques help liberating the interruptions on the mobility flow, what offers to the organism a more useful, productive, and healthy functional base.
Hiatus hernias, constipation, irritable colon, menstrual pathologies, aerophagias, dysphagia, reflux, etc.
It is directed toward the musculoskeletal system, where different techniques are applied adapted to each disfunction, each tissue, and each patient, making the physiotherapist do during all the treatment session a continuous and thorough analysis and decision making about which technique to use and which joint to manipulate.
Discal hernias, protrusions, articular blocks, braquial paralysis, sciatica, etc.
