The Orthopaedic-sports rehabilitation at the IRR Institute is inspired by the concept of comprehensive rehabilitation. In each session, not only do we try to rehabilitate the patient’s lacking function, such as a joint or muscle or tendon problem, a function which is controlled by a given cerebral motor area, but at the same time we try to stimulate other brain areas, such as the visual or hearing ones.
More brain areas that are activated synergistically to enhance the rehabilitation of a muscle or tendon, or joint, etc. determine a more effective and rapid therapeutic response by the patient. This is achieved both with a traditional rehabilitation guided by a physiotherapist and with the use of particularly sophisticated equipment, mostly of neurorehabilitation derivation, which operates as a complement to the traditional rehabilitation. The end result is a particularly intensive approach from the rehabilitation point of view, but not at all stressful for the patient; indeed, the rehabilitation is almost turned into a “therapeutic game“.
Functional taping is a partial immobilization technique used to reduce healing time compared to conventional immobilization methods.
Isokinetics is a method used in rehabilitation and training that allows, through special computerized equipment, to measure the force produced by a limb during a specific movement.
Postural gymnastics are performed with the aim to correct and obtain a correct posture. It is a perfect exercise for those who tend to suffer from back, shoulder and neck pain.
Physiokinesiotherapy is a physiotherapy methodology based on a particular type of gymnastics with a therapeutic function.
Hydrokinesiotherapy, or rehabilitation in water, known since Roman times, is a special therapy that uses movement in water.
A deep tissue massage is a special massage technique that increases the elasticity of the tissues and stimulates the peripheral nerve endings in the treated areas.
District massage therapy is usually defined as a type of massage that targets the limitation of painful tensions and restarts metabolic exchanges.
The manipulation is a forced passive mobilization which tends to shift the elements of an articulation or of a set of joints beyond their usual range, up to the limit of their possible anatomical movement.
Motor rehabilitation, as a movement therapy (kinesiotherapy), aims to restore the normal muscular, myofascial, and articular coordination function of the movement.
Therapy aimed at the rehabilitation and training of walking and the use of prosthetic means (orthosis, namely means used to correct defects and deformations).
Through impulses that act on muscle motor points, electrostimulation is a type of AC power that causes a contraction of the muscle similar to a voluntary one.
Laser therapy uses the effects produced by electromagnetic energy generated by two sources of laser light.
The equipment uses the beneficial power of the very low temperatures for the localized reduction of edema.
Shock wave is a high-energy wave which can be induced by an electrohydraulic, electromagnetic or piezoelectric generator.
The CRET (Capacitive Resistive Energy Transfer) therapy bases its operation and its effect on the ability to transfer biocompatible energy to injured tissues
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is a device that sends electric shocks through electrodes positioned in the area affected by pain, with the function of inhibiting the nerves that transmit pain.
Diadynamic currents are formed by waves with unidirectional and always positive impulses; these waves are obtained by changing the low frequency sinusoidal electric current.
Ultrasound uses the mechanical energy of sound waves. The ultrasonic production is obtained by exploiting the properties of some of mineral crystals that produce vibrations.
Global Individual treatment that involves all muscle chains to back track from the symptoms to the cause of a lesion and cure them all together.
Iontophoresis can carry drugs through the skin using a unidirectional (galvanic) current.
Pressotherapy is a treatment that improves the functioning of the circulatory system and the lymphatic system in those who undergo it.
