Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy: Essential Components in Functional Recovery

The human body consists of several complex functional systems encompassing the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and bones and muscles, among others. The damage of one of these units can cause the whole system to fail.

After Spinal Cord Injury, for example, degeneration of muscles, bones and even areas in the brain can occur. Whilst stem cells are now being used by physicians to stimulate the repair mechanisms of the damaged spinal cord, re-training of the whole functional system is essential to regain previous functional capabilities. This is the focus of modern rehabilitation treatments and physiotherapies. By challenging the whole body, from brain to muscle, it can be prompted to grow new nerves, improve nerve conductivity and connectivity, induce better neuro-muscular interaction, muscle strength and coordination.

At ANOVA we care to provide our patients with an individualized therapeutic program to ensure best results. We have teamed up with the professionals from SPOREG, a leading center for rehabilitation and physiotherapy, who provide premium services both for patients and professional athletes. For patients who do not live close to our center, we suggest we stay in close touch with the patient’s physicians, trainers and physiotherapists to work together on the patient’s fast recovery.
