Prevention and treatment of muscular shortenings
Group or individual sessions with physiotherapists, involving stretching excercises which help alleviate muscular rigidity and spacticity, reducing the risk of injury and preventing compensations.
Incorporating different aquatic therapies, simple baths, contrast baths and hydro-kinesitherapy, utilise the thermal and mechanical benefits of water. This type of treatment can be made in group or with a physical therapist assistant and is extremely beneficial in strengthening the muscles, and improving motor coordination and balance.
Personal autonomy and control of the environment
Occupational therapy helps to provide greater autonomy and improve the quality of life of people with a disability by using proactive activities, the environment, computers, technical assistance and ortho-prosthetic elements. Work is done to improve basic activities of daily living and also to improve the more technical activities, such as leisure and work.
Study and treatment of dysphagia in Tenerife
Designed to improve the ingestion of liquids and solid foods, a speech therapist will evaluate and treat swallowing difficulties caused by mechanical or neuromuscular problems, including excessive salivation and oesphageal reflux etc.
Rehabilitation of the superior functions
Neuropsychological rehabilitation is aimed at patients with focal cerebral injuries as well as those suffering from degenerative diseases such as demetia or Alzheimers. Using standardised tests the neuropsychologist evaluates the cognitive alterations (memory, attention, perception, language, etc.) and conductual alterations (emotional lability, behaviour disruptions, executive dysfunction, etc.) that can take place as a result of a cerebral injury. Following this evaluation, Clinica Vintersol will creat specific rehabilitation treatments that will optimise the recovery of the affected superior functions and provide methods to deal with the associated disadvantages.
Evaluation and treatment of the communication pathologies
Communication disorders are very common after suffering a cerebral injury, evident as either language, speech or voice alteration. Following an integral evaluation and diagnosis, specific progams are created to recover and improve the ability to communicate. The program includes re-educative techniques, alternative methods and augmentative strategies of communication, both in oral and written language. Children with language difficulties, dyslalia, dysartria, dyslexia, as well as people with hypoacusia, disglosia or dysphonia, can also benefit by working with Clinica Vintersol speech therapists.
