REHABILITATION

PROGRAMS

Neuro Rehabilitation

The goal of Neurological Rehabilitation at Dar El Mona is to help the patient return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving the overall quality of life; physically, emotionally, and socially


Electrotherapy Therapy


right

Electrotherapy is the use of electrical energy as a medical treatment in rehabilitation; the term electrotherapy can apply to a variety of treatments for every case’s specific needs, including the use of electrical devices such as deep brain stimulators for neurological disease.

The use of electrotherapy has been researched and accepted in the field of rehabilitation (electrical muscle stimulation).

Electrotherapy is used for:

  • Relaxation of muscle spasms
  • Prevention and retardation of disuse atrophy
  • Increase of local blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation and re-education electrical muscle stimulation
  • Maintaining and increasing range of motion
  • Management of chronic and intractable pain, post-traumatic acute pain, post-surgical acute pain, immediate post-surgical stimulation of muscles to prevent venous thrombosis, wound healing and drug delivery

Electrical Muscle Stimulation 

Muscle Stimulation is referred as (NMES) Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation or EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) and is useful for rehabilitation of muscles following Brain injury.

The device is powerful enough to achieve a strong muscle contraction. The stimulation phases on-and-off to mimic conventional exercise and thus will cause strengthening of the muscle fibers and increase in muscle “tone.”

Indications for the EMS are:

  1. Relaxation of muscle spasm
  2. Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
  3. Increasing local blood circulation
  4. Muscle re-education
  5. Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis
  6. Maintaining or increasing range of motion

Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulator (TENS)

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation therapy is electrical stimulation that’s applied to your skin to provide extra stimulation to your nerves and muscles.

Benefits of TENS Therapy

The most important benefit of TENS therapy is the ability to regain muscle movement; it also can help your muscles regain movement through nerve and muscle stimulation.

For best results our rehabilitation team uses (TENS) therapy in combination with your rehab exercises, to retain the muscle movement much better.

Interferential Simulator (IF)

Interferential current (IFC) therapy is a therapeutic modality that is used often in a brain injury therapy.



Other Common uses

Pre and post-orthopedic surgery, joint injury syndrome, cumulative trauma disorders, increasing circulation and pain control of various origins.

High Voltage Pulsed Galvanic Stimulator (HVPGS)

Galvanic stimulation is a method of applying high voltage, but overall low amperage, direct current to alleviate pain, stimulate blood flow, and promote wound healing.

Other benefits of (HVPGS)

  • Stimulates muscle contraction
  • Decreases circulation of the target area and reduce swelling
  • Increases the distribution of oxygen, blood and nutrients to the injured area to speed of the healing process.

Microcurrent Stimulator (MC)

Microcurrent Therapy uses extremely tiny electrical currents used for the relief of pain, because of its close proximity to our own body’s current, and is thought to work on a more cellular level.

The use of Microcurrent at an injured area helps:

  • Reduce or completely eliminate pain
  • Realign the body’s electrical current
  • Increase the production of ATP

CONDITIONS




Neuro rehabilitation Program is serving patients with those conditions

  • Cerebral vascular stroke and other vascular insults
  • Post traumatic and acquired brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Back and neck problems including disk diseases spondylosis and deformation
  • Muscles diseases ,myopathies, myasthenia gravis,  and dystrophies
  • Sequel of inflammatory and infectious diseases of the nervous system as transverse myelitis
  • Children with developmental disorders as cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism and mental retardation
  • Brain or spinal cord tumors
  • Bell’s  palsy, carpal tunnel syndrome, , peripheral neuropathy and Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Degenerative disorders, such as Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer disease, and Huntington chorea
The Program has different main Components

Speech Therapy


Speech pathologists conducts the initial assessment of speech and develop a treatment plan that will be implemented by our speech therapist, this plan may include:

  • Improvement in language skills
  • Develop alternative communication skills
  • Dealing pathological problems such as swallowing

Cognitive Rehabilitation Program


This program is designed to help patients with stroke and traumatic brain injuries, who suffered from memory and concentration problems. Our program helps the patient to re learn cognitive skills that was impaired from the injury and if this skill cannot be re acquired, they will help the patient acquire new cognitive skill.


Bladder Rehabilitation Program


Bladder dysfunction is common following spinal cord injury, and up to 15% in cerebrovascular stroke. The main goal of this program is to increase the amount of time between emptying your bladder and the amount of fluids your bladder can hold. It also can diminish leakage and the sense of urgency associated with the problem.
