The Neurorehabilitation Unit has developed a series of care programmes specifically aimed at fulfilling the needs of each individual patient with brain injury.
ASSESSMENT AND MEDICAL CONSULTATION PROGRAMME (BY APPOINTMENT)
Assessment and evaluation is documented by professionals depending on the patient’s clinical situation.
PROGRAME FOR ALTERED LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
At the Nisa Hospitals Neurorehabilitation Unit, we are specialists in assessing and treating patients with altered levels of consciousness (coma, vegetative state or unresponsive wakefulness syndrome, and minimally conscious state). In fact, our research team is conducting research into improving our understanding of the neural changes that occur between the coma state and the recovery of consciousness.
An accurate and reliable assessment of the level of arousal and the level of consciousness is crucial for the diagnosis, prognosis, and handling of patients with low levels of consciousness.
We have therefore developed a specific programme of therapy for patients with altered levels of consciousness. The programme includes a clinical and neurological assessment, as well as pharmaceutical treatment, multisensory and basal stimulation, physiotherapy and posture therapy, and stimulation of the orofacial musculature, among other treatments.
PROGRAMME FOR NEURO-ORTHOPAEDIC ALTERATIONS AND SKELETAL MUSCLE TREATMENT
Includes the application of specific techniques such as botulinum toxin, intrathecal baclofen therapy (ITB therapy), conventional physiotherapeutic training, robotic systems, etc., and the treatment of common complications such as heterotopic ossification, articular rigidities, myofascial pain syndrome, and neuropathic pain, among others.
