Physiotherapy includes a number of physical therapies such as tecor, magnetotherapy, bandages,to decrease pain and inflammation and help tissues heal. Therefore, after the physiotherapy phase, the functional recovery of the muscle,ligament or joint is carried out.
Functional re-education consists of three phases: the first consists of a careful assessment to get an accurate clinical picture of the patient and his disorder and set an appropriate rehabilitative protocol. The next step involves assisted exercises aimed at working on increasing muscle tone and stretching and postural proprioceptive control.
Finally, after recovering the motor patterns, the patient can undergo greater workloads until they resume normal daily activities.
Functional re-education is applied to all those situations that require the recovery of reduced or lost motor function due to trauma or surgery. It allows a recovery of the sensitivity of the body part to be treated, restores the proprioception of the body and muscles, re-educates the joints to natural movements and the muscles to the correct work.
Functional rehabilitation is carried out in the
with the support of other equipment in the
