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“.
