PHYSIOTHERAPY

PERINATAL

SUPPORT

The purpose of perinatal physiotherapy support is to accompany and treat pregnant women, following child birth (post natal), and babies with gentle, manual techniques.

Using soft and manual techniques, physiotherapy in perinatal care, will relieve pregnant women, prepare their pelvis for delivery, accompany women following child birth (post natal) and help babies who are in need.

 
 

COMPLEX

CERVICAL

JAW

Physiotherapy of the oro-maxillo-facial complex deals with disorders and symptoms related to the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), jaw, mouth, skull, face/head and neck. 

 

Joint and muscle recovery techniques are used to correct TMJ and jaw dysfunction.

The indications for treatment concern the fields of orthodontics, traumatology of the maxillo-facial complex, reconstructive and plastic surgery as well as pathologies related to TMJ dysfunctions in relation to the stress of daily life and the patient's posture (TMJ dysfunctions, occlusion and manducatory apparatus disorders, cervical pain, etc...).

 

MYOFASCIAL

HOOKS 

Myofascial release is a technique that allows the gliding planes between the different muscles to be freed by means of a hook.

The actions of this technique are multiple: reduction of adhesions between the tissues in cases of scars or after a trauma with effusion, circulatory action by increasing the blood circulation in the area worked, reflex effect by the work of the Trigger-Points, treatment of inflammatory pain and hypertonia and muscle contractures.

LYMPHATIC

DRAINAGE 

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle manual technique. It is practiced on the legs, buttocks, abdomen, back, but also on the neck and face. Its aim is to collect the interstitial liquid (lymph) and improve circulation. Lymph can sometimes accumulate, creating oedemas, especially after an operation. Manual lymphatic drainage can help to prevent them, or reabsorb them once they have set in.

The induced effects of this technique are the detoxification of our body, the reinforcement of our immune defences and improve the functioning of our organs.

 

ERGONOMICS

Ergonomics is the scientific field concerned with understanding the changing effects between a human being and other elements of a system, as well as the professional activity that uses theory, principles, data and design methods to improve the well-being of an individual and the overall performance of the system. Within the framework of the physiotherapy sessions we offer you a complete analysis of your workplace.

 

FASCIATHERAPY

Manual therapy that works on all the structures of the body: bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and viscera through the "fascia", membranes that surround and connect these parts.

Fasciatherapy improves the flexibility, adaptability and sensitivity of the fascia and optimizes its role as a guardian of proper body function.

 
 

FAT TOOL 

FAT-TOOL is a technique, by skin abrasion, to mobilize and release the fascia that surrounds and connects muscle tissue.

This tool, through its texture, helps to reduce tissue sensitivity, release areas of fascial tension, stimulate circulation and mobilize deep tissues by working on the surface tissues.

KINESIO TAPING

The use of elastic adhesive bandages provides another approach to the control and improvement of pain and function in both sporty and non-sporty patients. Adhesive bandages have the properties of the skin (weight, thickness, elasticity) and will influence the function of joints and muscles, but especially circulatory (venous, lymphatic) and nociceptors (neuroproprioceptive effects). The main objective is no longer to immobilize a joint or restrict a movement, as we traditionally practice, but on the contrary to promote and maintain as much painless mobility as possible, to improve proprioception as well as blood and lymphatic circulation.

 

PEDIATRY

From birth to walking and beyond, pediatric physiotherapy concerns children with various problems (congenital torticollis, foot deformity, skull deformity, motor disorders).

Consultations can be for rehabilitation, check-up or advice.

 
 

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a human, clinical, paramedical science, based on movement and physiology of the body. It uses manual, instrumental or educational techniques in order to achieve well-being, maintain or improve a state of health and to promote prevention.

Every day of the week according to LAMAL tariffs.

MUSCULO

SKELETAL

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy treats acute and chronic disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Problems related to the musculoskeletal system can occur as a result of surgery, injuries and poor load distribution. They can also be caused by rheumatic disorders.

Physiotherapists manage the healing process and also provide indications for self-treatment and advice for prophylaxis or to reduce disorders in the areas of ergonomics in the workplace, sport and leisure.

 

FALL

PREVENTION

The role of physiotherapy in fall prevention is a matter of both primary and secondary prevention. The first prevention aims to prevent the fall Itself. It includes explaining potential risk factors to patients, required behaviour and specific exercises. The second prevention involves a first fall and focuses on how to prevent a second fall. Fall prevention can be carried out as an individual and/or group treatment.

 

MC KENZIE 

The approach to low back pain caused by the disc is now essentially based on the technical principles of the McKenzie method. The main strategy is to centralise the patient's pain by means of repeated postures and/or movements, with particular emphasis on extension.

A clinical examination will make it possible to apply and have the patient apply primarily self-treatment techniques.

This approach can be completed by articular and myotensive techniques

but also by reinforcement and spinal ergonomic techniques.

 

OVERALL

POSTURAL

REHABILITATION

It's a holistic therapeutic approach based on the principle of muscle chains (developed by Philippe Souchard in 1981). It involves progressive stretching postures of static muscles performed with the help of a therapist and/or actively by the patient. The aim is to treat posture, morphological and lesional deformations and the after-effects of respiratory diseases.

 

URO-

GYNAECOLOGY

REHABILITATION

This particular physiotherapy specialises in the prevention, assessment and treatment of urinary, rectal, gynaecological and sexual disorders. (pre and post natal), incontinence, post surgery, ...)

 

PRIMITIVE

REFLEXES 

An approach to understand how humans develop from conception and integrate movement into their lives.

These reflexes are involuntary reactions that are mainly present in newborns, they allow our senses to mature: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. They are the most essential factor in the development of our posture, behaviour and academic success.Ideally, our nervous system is capable of developing these reflexes and giving us easy access to our potential.

 

TRIGGER

POINT 

The muscle structure has a great influence on disorders of the motor system and can directly cause both acute and chronic pain conditions. Myofascial relaxation points" are very often responsible for pain and functional restrictions in the musculoskeletal system.

The affected muscle areas are palpable (trigger points): Activation by pressure causes pain that is often transferred to other parts of the body (referred pain). However, in addition to pain, relaxation points can also lead to paresthesias, muscle weakness, motor restrictions, proprioceptive disorders with impaired coordination and autonomic vegetative reactions.

The targeted treatment of relaxation points usually makes it possible to eliminate this condition, even after a prolonged period of time.

 
 

HOME

TREATMENT

The Physiotherapist's home visits enable people with reduced mobility to receive care directly in their own home. This care is subject to a specific medical prescription.
