Unique programs, exclusively designed for spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders recovery.
Unlike traditional physiotherapy, this therapy do not pretend compensate to get the movement, what it is looking for is activate the neuromuscular system to recover the movement below the level of lesion. Intense physical activity, with repetitive and load-bearing exercises, has been shown to improve not only sitting, standing or stepping, also reaching and grasping, increase cardio/pulmonary function, decrease bone loss density and improve physiological, bladder and bowel function in individuals with chronic spinal cord injury.
Its target is not replaced conventional physical therapy, instead of this join it thinking out the box to achieve unthinkable goals thus far.
Spinal Cord Injury
What we do?
First of all you will evaluate in many different areas. Every single exercise of our specialized programs is out of your chair for the entire session with us, using strategic and aggressive exercises designed to improve and stimulate your nervous system in an unic way.
These intensive programs of physical therapy include different components:
Sensorial Stimulation: active and passive mobilization, stretching, controlled movements and electrostimulation. Higher repetition of movements can help to reorganize movement pattern in the brain and/or spinal cord.
Balance: Improve balance in different ways, strength and appropriate core allow you to get best posture, movements and improve your quality of life.
Load bearing: weight bearing exercises in your upper and lower extremities help muscles and ligaments during activities in different positions.
Gait and pregait training: we create different positions that prepare your body to walk, provide motion patterns for lower extremities.
Improve mobility, strength and flexibility
Provide neuromuscular stimulation and increase neuroplasticity.
Maintain appropriate health and bone density.
Increase functionality, sensory and motor skills.
Decrease spasms, pain and depression.
Decrease secondary complications.
Regular physical exercise reduces muscular atrophy and contributes physical and psychological benefits.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
What is TMJ?
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is formed by the articulation of the mandible and the temporal bone of the cranium. It is located anteriorly to the tragus of the ear, on the lateral side of the face. You have one joint on each side of your jaw.
Sometimes it is difficult to know the exact cause of this disorder. Probably a combination of factors like genetics, arthritis or jaw injury may be the cause of your pain.
Some people who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind their teeth (bruxism), although many people habitually clench or grind their teeth and never develop TMJ disorders.
Disorders of TMJ may include several signs and symptoms:
Tenderness or pain on facial, neck muscles and jaw
Cliking, grindind or locking of the jaw
Soreness and swelling of the temporomandibular joints
Ear pain, tinnitus and hearing loss
Chewing, talking or yawning might be difficult or cause pain
Headaches and dizziness
Joint locked, making it difficult some movements
Often, this pain and discomfort can be relieved with physiotherapy treatment. Surgery is typically a last resort after conservative measures have failed.
What causes TMJ pain?
Jaw muscles overactivity
Tear of the cartilage inside the joint
TMJ Physiotherapy treatment
The aims of physiotherapy treatment are restore normal function and mobility, minimise stiffness and pain relief.
Relaxation muscles, decrease chronic and acute pain, increase blood circulation, swelling and wound healing and tissue repair.
Bad posture in daily life will causes prolonged over-stretching and tension of muscles, ligaments and joints especially surrounding tissues of the jaw. Improving our posture it is possible to prevent or relieve your head, neck and jaw pain.
Relaxing jaw position
Strengthening and stretching muscles
Mandibular stabilisation exercises
Apply heat on chronic injuries and ice on acute pain area
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a non-invasive and relaxing type of massage that promotes lymph to drain out of a part of the body into an area that drains normally.
It is mainly used for lymphoedema and it can be performed within days of surgery. It does not disrupt the tissue around the surgical area.
The unaffected lymph nodes are treated first moving the lymph from proximal to distal to drain the affected areas. It is starts centrally and proximally around the neck and movements are completed, slowly, rhythmically and repetitively using soft pressure. However, sometimes it is necessary to use deeper and firmer movements.
Breathing techniques, limb mobilization and relaxation could be used combined with lymphatic drainage.
Lymphatic drainage also can be used before and after surgeries with the goal to accelerate recovery and reduce inflammation, resorption of oedemas and haematomas and the elimination of toxic substances.
Benefits before and after injury
Receiving treatment prior to a surgery helps to prepare the area to remove cellular waste products, bacteria, viruses, excess proteins, excess fluid and any other unwanted substances from the spaces between your cells; essentially cleaning the tissues.
Though this process happens naturally with receiving treatment can accelerate this process. Furthermore it reduces the risk of complications after surgery such swelling, bruising, infection and les mobility.
On the other hand you will receive a deeply relaxing effect prior to surgery.
After surgery swelling is normal and necessary part of the inflamatory healing process, but in excess can causses pain, risk of infection, scars, adhesions and decrease range of motion.
Therefore, six or more consecutive treatments after surgery has shown to yield the best results, but one or two treatments is still beneficial.
Treatment frequency after surgery will depend on the operation and the patient. Multiple consecutive treatments may be necessary in the first week or so after surgery, with treatments decreasing in frequency over the following weeks.
There are a lot of kind of massages. Therapeutic massage helps relieve joint stiffness and muscle tension, aches and spasms. Therapist often customizes it paying special attention to any injuries you can suffered. It is formed by different massage techniques that are used in neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders.
This is not a relaxing massage, it is more firm with pressure to diminish any stiffness or damaged areas. This pressure encourages blood to flow through the pained areas, relieves stress and relax tense muscles.
By the end of a session you will feel relief, however one massage could be insufficient and sometimes it will need more tan one session depending on how tight your muscles are.

Orthopedic Manual Therapy
It consists of a comprehensive evaluation of the patient's arthro-neuro-muscular system and its functional capabilities. This assessment defines the dysfunction that the patient presents in the joint, muscular and nervous systems, as well as in other relevant systems; explaining how they relate to any disability or functional limitation.
The intervention in orthopedic manual therapy is formed by different techniques including: muscle stretching, strength and muscle coordination, mobilization of the nervous system, manipulation and slow joint mobilization, both active and passive stabilization and resistance exercises , as well as the general functional situation of the patient. Also essential during the intervention process is self-treatment by the patient (a set of therapeutic strategies that the physiotherapist instructs the patient to manage their own functional and general health status).
Traumatological physiotherapy involves a specific assessment and a treatment protocol encompassing various pathologies such as: sprains, fractures, contractures, dislocations, joint degeneration, back pain, surgeries, tendinitis, calcifications, prosthesis, ligament rupture, fiber rupture, pathology meniscal, among others.
Its main objectives are to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and improve mobility and functionality.
Geriatric physiotherapy is born with the increase in the index of life, making elderly patients more and more numerous. The principles in this area are to facilitate the achievement or improvement of the psychological and psychomotor person's functionality.
The main objectives, taking into account the residual capacities of the patient, are: increase functional joint ranges, maintain and / or recover physical-functional independence in ADL, work muscle strength, achieve a good pattern of walking and balance, promote active aging and decrease post-fall and immobility syndromes.
The sports physiotherapy is a specialization aimed at all those people who practice sports regularly, either for health, basic or professional.
Some pathologies usually treated are:
Musculotendinous lesions such as contractures, overloads, fibrillar tears or tendonitis.
Meniscopathies, reeducation to the effort, osteopathy of the pubis, capsule-ligament injuries, joint instability, shoulder rotator cuff injuries, functional bandages, massage and sports massage, sports performance, postural assessment of the athlete.
Ligamentous and joint injuries such as sprains, patellar chondropathy, capsulitis, bursitis, among others.
Daily Life Activities
Daily life activities are those which enable people to develop their own role in the society on an autonomous way.
There are self-care activities (hygiene, feeding, dressing) and non-essential like caring for a pet, using a phone or playing an instrument.
We analyze your handicaps and support you in your recovery or getting new abilities to recover your independence.
Physical and NeurologicaL Disorders
Muscular, osteoarticular, post-surgeries, fractures or neurological disorders can benefit from occupational therapy.
Mobility recovery, strength, training in daily life, architectonical barriers suppression, training in technical aids, splints, home adaptation, environment modification… all this with the goal to regain your independence, well-being and active participation in their lives and society.
Occupational therapy will work for recovering, facilitating or adapting your affected areas in order to develop fully, independent and satisfactory life.
Cognitive and Sensorial Disorders
Cognitive stimulation prevents, maintains, restores and compensates the damaged processing skills. Training attention, concentration, orientation, perception, memory, speech, praxis, reasoning, executive functions, etc. and creating specific programs based on your own life story with the goal to get a stronger commitment, adherence and motivation.
Sensory stimulation is an application of controlled stimuli through different means based on exercises which develop all senses. Improves perception and alertness, using damaged skills and senses. Both children and adults, ictus, Parkinson or dementia, among others injuries with no sensory skills can benefit from it.
Individual classes to adapt to your medical history and specific patology in order to get better benefits and results.
Pilates is physical and mental training system creatd by Joseph Pilates in Germany. In terms of rehabilitation is based on six basic principles applied in every single exercise:
Stabilization and core control, through the use of specific muscle contraction.
Joint and muscle flexibility.
Muscle strength and postural alignment.
Integration: coordination, precision and balance.
Thanks to Pilates exercises, we can reach all these benefits:
Strength and stability increase.
