What is Parkinson’s Disease ?
Parkinson’s Disease – is a chronic degenerative disease of the nervous system, in which a person loses the ability to control his movements. The disease develops relatively slowly, with a tendency to progress.
- PNF stretching: the philosophy of treatmentis to help the patient effectively increase motor function, by using all the sensory receptors. PNF stretching is built according to the principles: P – Proprioceptive, N – Neuromuscular, F – Facilitation.
The concept of this method was the thesis on the function of the “proprioceptive nervous system”. In all muscles, joints, ligaments, there are proprioceptors that respond to stretching or contraction. With the help of certain manipulations we affect these receptors and can stimulate, initiate and facilitate the performance of any movement (whole body or limb, even the movements of the eyelids and mimic muscles).
- Bobath therapy: a recognized type of therapy for patients with congenital malformations of the brain and other central nervous system diseases.
- Kinesiotherapy: an effective form of physiotherapy, in which a specific therapeutic result is achieved by means of special physical exercises. In other words, kinesiotherapy – is the treatment by active and passive movements, therapeutic gymnastics.
- Hydrotherapy: part of physiotherapy, in which water is used water is used for treatment. The physical properties of hydrotherapy are hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy, thermal conductivity and heat capacity.
- Physiotherapy: improves the health and mental state of the patient. Its positive results greatly affect the success of rehabilitation in various diseases. Exercises contribute to strengthening muscles, building the endurance of the body, intensifying blood circulation, improving respiratory and cardiac functions and stabilizing the balance.
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy: department of communication and swallowing disorders deals with the diagnosis and rehabilitation ofthe communication functions violations (tongue function, speech improvement), swallowing from childhood to the elderly years.
- Electrotherapy: various types of analgesic electrotherapy.
1. IF – interfering currents are important for reducing pain, reducing edema, increasing blood flow through tissues, improving muscle tone. Our specialists use very high frequencies and with the help of special types electrodes we achieve, in addition to the analgesic effect, also the blood and lymph influx.
2. DD – diadynamic currents are used on the surface of the skin, as well as in acute conditions, to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, normalize muscle tone and reduce muscle spasms. Currents are strongly recommended in combination of various forms of diadynamic currents only for limb injuries.
3. TENS – by using surface electrodes, thick afferent nerve fibers are stimulated-an additional flow of impulses to spinal cord. This therapy is recommended for reducing local pain, stimulating muscles and for rheumatic diseases.
- Gym: the only one that is fully accessible, with Olympic standards, to athletes with special needs in Greece.
- Snoezelen (sensory room): specially equipped space, organized to make everyone in it feel full of peace, comfort and safety, regardless of age and health.
- BTS Nirvana: an outstanding therapeutic method. Rehabilitation activities, featuring audio-visual Incentives(more than 160 exercises), provoke in patients perceptual and cognitive involvement and are very motivational, help develop motor skills, restore coordination and maintain balance.
