Prevention, treatment and physical therapy
Physiotherapy is a branch of medicine that deals with prevention, treatment and physical therapy of patients with congenital conditions or muscoloskeletal, neurological or internal conditions acquired through multiple surgeries.
It can intervene in many fields that include neuro-skeletal diseases: orthopedy, neurology, rheumatology, geriatric medicine, cardiology, pneumology, pediatrics, stomacognatic, urology, and synecology.
The physiotherapist specialized in neuroskeletal disorders can use functional assessment (e.g. walking, breathing, chewing), postural assessment, analysis of painful movements, physical exam and specific tests to find functional diseases and a broad range of functional disorders in children and adolescents, as well as adults and elderly people.
Therapeutical treatment for functional rehabilitation can be tailored on the specific needs of treatment and prevention, and includes manual and neurophysiological techniques, special exercise and therapeutical personalized exercises.
In the area of orofacial, disorders they take care of the functional assessment and rehabilitation of facial pain, neckpain, joints snap or frozen joints, bruxism or muscular tension. They work in a team (with the dentist, the orthodontist, the gnathologist, the speech therapist, etc.) to reduce the pain and improve the movement and recover from limited functionality.
A helpful diagnostic support is Rasterstereography: it is an innovative tool and reliable in 3D misuration of the spinal column.
It is a quick, non-invasive and reliable method to study the spinal column and posture.
The patient stands for a few seconds in front of the machine that projects some beams of halogen light on their bare torso, which are detected by a digital camera. The software elaborates and analyzes the data in real time and builds a 3D spinal column and of the pelvis.
It can be used to study functional disorders with postural origins, speech therapy, orthoptics, orthodontic. For example in this last case, it is used for the orthodontic evaluation to study complex prosthetic rehabilitation.
