Rehabilitation and Physical Medicine
The department provides rehabilitation treatment for patients with various neurological diseases under the supervision of a physical doctor, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, neurological and muscular disorders, various orthopedic disorders, reconstructive surgery, rheumatism, amputation, burns, back pain and general pain syndromes.
Lokomat: is a type of physical therapy designed to restore the patient’s ability to walk or correct his own walking. It is most commonly used for patients with certain neurological diseases that affect walking such as stroke, spinal injuries, brain damage, bone problems (such as the use of an artificial end of the pelvis to the knee, or the injury of the front cruciate ligament), as well as provide sufficient support for the arm and hand movement for developing the patient’s control in movement and improving movement disorders. Patients who have lost all of their ability to move their arm or hands can use the treatment and utilize the robot arm and hand.
Additionally, the rehab unit is used to treat patients with a brain injury in the speech therapy unit. Recently we started using new interventions to restore function such as Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (dTMS) in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and stroke and training disorders for balance problems.
With the help of rehabilitation unit, the patient can be moved earlier, which helps to restore the position of his body and his ability to walk, which helps to prevent the ulcer of the mattress caused by immobility for a long time. The treatment reduces early risk of venous thrombosis, urinary tract infections, constipation, bowel obstruction, mucus buildup, pneumonia, stiffness of joints, osteoporosis, muscular or general weakness, kidney stones or irregular blood pressure. The unit is also motivating the patient to speed up the rehabilitation process.
