    PHYSIOTHERAPY

    Injury prevention, recovery, postural education programs and functional and sports rehabilitation.

Physiotherapy or physical therapy is based on a set of techniques which aiming to cure, prevent, recover and rehabilitate patients through the application of physical agents. There are many techniques that can be applied in physical therapy to recover the physical and mental integrity of the patient.

At iQtra Medicina Avanzada we apply the most innovative techniques to stay updated and we keep improving them according to scientific advances.

The iQtra physiotherapists, all of them specialized and licensed, teach in workshops and lead activities designed to enhance, preserve and take care of our health. Check it out in our Wellness School.

IQtra professionals research and train in the most advanced therapeutic and surgical techniques.

PHYSIOTHERAPY
PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy or physical therapy consists in the application of physical agents through techniques which aim at curing, preventing, recovering and rehabilitating patients. There are many techniques that can be applied in physical therapy to recover the physical and mental integrity of the patient.

At iQtra Medicina Avanzada we apply the most innovative techniques to stay updated and we keep improving them according to scientific advances.

 

Manual Traction:

Application of any kind of techniques. Therapeutic massage, sports massage and relaxation massage.

 

Spinal Manual Traction:

Vrtebral and joint manipulation with osteopathic techniques.

 

Global Postural Correction:

Orthopedic manual analytical methods or global assessment and treatment, empowerment, stretching, and readjustment of the musculoskeletal system. Motor Control and work on the CORE. All this aimed at correcting the body position of the patient.

 

Joint, Neuro-Meningeal, Visceral and Fascial Mobilizations:

All of these structures have a three-dimensional mobility that must be rehabilitated in case of being altered by an injury.

 

Abdominal Hipopressive Gymnastics:

(GAH for its name in Spanish): This among other analytical or global methods are applied to reeducate any hip and gynaecological dysfunction (pelvic-floor electrostimulation).

 

Functional Bandage and Kinesiology Therapy :

This is a neuromuscular bandage that simulates the properties of the skin, works as support to the muscles being able to activate and relax them, helps to eliminate edema, vascular and lymphatic congestion and corrects joint problems while allowing movement.

 

Dry Needling:

Dry needling is a very effective technique in the treatment of myofascial pain, specifically in the treatment of the so-called myofascial trigger points (MTP), reaching relaxation for the affected muscles and the reduction of local pain. Performed by physiotherapists specialized in myofascial pain.

 

Thermotherapy:

This is the application of heat or cold respectively. Heat reduces muscle tone and blood flow increases in the area of application. Cold reduces inflammation and slows the transmission of painful stimuli.

 

Electrotherapy:

it consists in the use of electrical, magnetic or electromagnetic signals through the body. There is a wide variety of currents, whose election will be determined by medical assessment. It help to relieve pain, reduces inflammation of the affected area and improves the range of motion and increases the functionality of the treated area.

Ultrasound:

Sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing.

Low and Medium-Frequency Electromagnetical Impulses:

There are many types of these impulses with different effects: they basically pursue two objectives; muscle contraction to relax it or drain it, or electrostimulation to cease pain or analgesia (TENS). Incorrect application can cause muscle damage. It is important to follow the indications of a physiotherapist.

Myofascial Induction Techniques:

Myofascial induction is a concept of treatment of injuries of the musculoskeletal system, based on evaluation and treatment techniques, manual three-dimensional compression sustained through different levels of body movements throughout the fascial system, with the goal of eliminating functional limitations. The elimination of restrictions allows to reset body’s balance, get rid of the painful symptoms and recover the altered function of the musculoskeletal system.

Hydrotherapy:

One can achieve many benefits through exercising in the water. Hydrotherapy is not only used for patients with neurological problems but also for post-surgical recovery patients, the time before childbirth, after childbirth and even before one begins rehabilitating to go back to sports or daily life activities, thus improving the muscle tone without causing fatigue and preventing joint impact.

Neurological Physical Therapy:

This is the part of the physiotherapy that takes care of patients with any neurological pathology: spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, stroke, hemiplegia,…
The main objectives of this type of treatment are: To improve the paient’s walk, improve stability, reduce spasticity, tremors and fatigue, improve autonomy and contribute to the improvement of the daily living activities.

Press Therapy:

Assisted by pressure cuffs, this technique consists in improving the drainage of the lymphatic system in legs, arms and abdomen to boost the removal of waste substances and prevent liquid retention.

Myofascial Release:

Passive stretching technique that maintains and/or improves muscular elasticity and flexibility. These stretches can have a preventive or flexibility-training therapeutic action. It makes an impact on the tone and muscle vascularisation. It can be done in an analytical way for each muscle or globally for groups of chained up muscles.

OSTEOPATHY
OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a type of therapy that studies the individual as a whole. Condering the patient’s physical-mental state, an osteopath seeks to find the origin of the his/her condition instead of treating the injury itself.

For this purpose, the professional osteopath needs to ask the patient some questions, a collection of data not only about the patient’s current condition, but also of past events and pathologies that “left no trace” in the individual and that will help us to know the reason why there is a new pathology. It is necessary that the main systems (musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial) are in harmony for the human body to work optimally.

 

Osteopathy: musculoskeletal system:

It brings together the most ancient osteopathy techniques. It integrates manipulation to treat the musculoskeletal system, not only treating the joints (thrust techniques, known by patients as “cracks”), but also soft tissues (muscles, ligaments and fascias).

Thrust techniques are applied to joints of the spine and to peripheral joints (joints in our limbs), giving quick results if they are implemented by true professionals.

Cranial Osteopathy:

Gentle manipulative techniques through which release those structures that cross or are contained in certain bones of the skull causing therefore compression symptoms in the patient.
Migraines, rhinitis or sinusitis can be treated with these cranial techniques.

Visceral Osteopathy :

A viscera needs to have a certain physiological movement as well as vascularization and neuro-vegetative innervation in order to work properly.
Every viscera is in continuous movement and its lack can lead to functional disorders, loss of tissue blood flow and the appearance of pathologies (irritation, infections or inflammation).

With visceral osteopathic treatment , professionals attempt to regain physiological motion which has been decreased as well as decongest those viscera irrigation problems that may need it.

FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY
FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY

We understand functional recovery as physical therapy aimed at the reintegration of individuals who have suffered injuries in the musculoskeletal system. The purpose is to reach the state prior to the injury.

Healthy Aging:

Add life to your age, not only years to life. Our purpose is to improve our elderly patients’ quality of life working on aspects such as strength, flexibility, balance and coordination.

 

Back to Work:

Exercises of postural hygiene for the work environment.

We would like to help you going back to work as quickly as possible but without the risk of getting injured again. Our training and personalized advice guarantees not only an specific rehabilitation but also the knowledge to prevent aggravating or getting damaged again in the future.

Personalized Training Schedule

Through a meticulous study of the each patient’s posture and in regards to the patient’s ailment, we create training schedules in order to solve the main problem caused by the injury and therefore the end of its perpetuation.

SPORTS RECOVERY AND REHABILITATION
