The most common injuries are:

  • Ligament sprains:
    There is an excess of stretch, strain, and sometimes a tear in the structures that hold the joints. They are very painful and requires the earliest possible treatment. The knee, ankle and shoulder are the joints more affected.
  • Tendonitis / tendinosis:
    Tendinosis are changes in the surface or internal structure of the tendon. They are small tears that affect the function of the tendon causing pain and functional impotence. Tendinitis is inflammation and the increasing size of the tendon secondary to the Tendinosis.
  • Muscle tears:
    They are tears of muscle fibers that can occur in a direct way by a stress or excessive load or indirectly by a direct impact.
  • Joint dislocations:
    The dislocation usually occurs after a traumatic direct impact on a stretch of the joint that can separate the bones occurs. A dislocated bone is no longer in its normal position and may cause damage to ligaments and nerves. They are very painful and often associated with fractures.

In neurology, physiotherapists apply techniques that are aimed at the treating of sequelae lesions of the central or peripheral nervous system.

After an initial assessment, the physiotherapist determines problems susceptible of treatment and agreed with the patient and/or family to raise targets.

Neurological physiotherapist will apply a series of techniques during the different sessions with the aim of improving physical capacities and structural alterations of the patient to rehabilitate or improve the quality and effectiveness of their movements and their posture. This the day-to-day quality of life and well-being of the Neurologic Patient.

The nervous system is a very complex structure that, today, we still have things to discover. Yes it has shown what, after damage to the same, there is a period of rehabilitation in which form new connections (neuroplasticity). What we have shown is that, after damage in it, there is a rehabilitation time in which new connections (neuroplasticity) are formed. For this reason, it is very important to stimulate, guide, correct and provide adequately. Every injury and every patient are different. Therefore, the best option is an individualized rehabilitation treatment.
