Postural Reeducation

 
 
It consists of effective techniques for the prevention and / or treatment of pain and postural changes addressing the subject as a whole.

Through the interrelations of breathing with the muscles and the human skeleton, our techniques treat the alterations of the human body taking into account the individual needs of each user, since each organism reacts in a different way to the aggressions it suffers.

Suitable for children, adolescents and adults.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

 
Manual lymphatic drainage is a massage technique with the aim of stimulating the lymphatic system to work at a faster pace, leading the lymph to the lymph nodes. Through this process the excess of fluids and toxins are eliminated.

Light pressures are applied in a smooth, rhythmic motion, always toward the lymph nodes we do not use any type of cream and it does not cause pain. With this technique we treat the retention of fluid between tissues, that occurs more frequently postoperatively (orthopedic, gynecological or oncological),in pregnancy and postpartum or associated with venous insufficiency.
 
 
 

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)

 
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunctions are frequent and may have effects such as headaches, cracking, facial pain, difficulty opening and closing the mouth and neck pain.

At Physiokinesis we develop appropriate solutions for each case, because each patient is unique.

Post Operative Physiotherapy

 
After orthopedic surgery it is essential to start physiotherapy as early as possible in order to control the inflammatory response and pain.
As well as restoring mobility and muscle strength so that they can achieve their functional independence.

We enhance the result of your surgery, be accompanied by our team with extensive experience in the monitoring of patients that have undergone orthopedic surgery, whether at home or at our clinic.

Dry Needling

 
Dry Needling, or dry puncture, is recognized as an adjunctive therapeutic procedure within the scope of the physiotherapist's practice. The technique is used to treat musculoskeletal and fascial disorders and connective tissue disorders.

Dry puncture has great potential in the treatment of pain in myofascial syndrome, deactivating muscle trigger points (characterized by a hyper-irritable point, located in a tight band of a muscle, or muscle fascia, associated with local and / or referred pain) . The diagnosis of myofascial pain syndrome is purely clinical, based on a detailed history, complete physical examination performed by muscle palpation of the trigger points, and observation of motor function.

The dry puncture is done through the penetration of an acupuncture needle, performed without the introduction of any medication (hence its name), and its principle is the mechanical stimulation of the trigger points that are located in the skeletal muscles. The insertion of the needle is intended to undo the nodule, through a spinal reflex that generates a sudden and involuntary contraction of the affected muscle fibers and causes them to relax immediately afterwards.Dry Needling is a procedure characterized as minimally invasive, in which an acupuncture needle is inserted directly into a muscle trigger point. The technique is commonly confused with traditional Chinese acupuncture. Although an acupuncture needle is used, the therapy is based on the traditional reasoning of Western medicine, based on different neurophysiological principles.

The puncture is typically followed by stretching exercises or ergonomic adjustments through some exercises, in order to reestablish the movement completely and painlessly, thus avoiding recurrences.

Electromyographic Biofeedback

 
The analysis of movement through Electromyographic Biofeedback (BEMG) allows the re-education of movement patterns and altered activation times through the monitoring and quantification of muscle activity.

The visual and auditory stimulation of BEMG allows greater motivation and more active participation on the part of the patient, with consequent success of the intervention and ease in maintaining objective results. It is a method of evaluation, prevention and treatment with application in the musculoskeletal, urogynecological and neurological areas. In the musculoskeletal area, it has excellent results in shoulder pathology, such as in subacromial conflict, and in the knee.
