What is Functional Myofeedback Therapy?
Bio- and Myofeedback are very helpful approaches used to enhance the functionality of the neurological state. In the present time, smartwatches, phones and other devices help us to keep track of pulse, how many steps we walk and a lot more. What are the alternatives if any of these functions are not working properly?
Functional Myofeedback Therapy (FMT) helps children and adults who lost or never had certain functions. If you are experiencing these or similar problems, a family member, a person close to you or a friend, might have lost or never had a basic physical ability like walking, sitting, running, speaking, standing or finer motorical difficulties (drinking, eating, playing an instrument, etc.) FMT might be the right approach to work on getting them back.
We respect that everyone has his own pace, individual needs and goals. Therefore, it’s essential that every participant gets his or her own specific plan depending on the goal setting and abilities.
After the therapy plan is made, we work for 1-3 hours combining various therapy approaches (Physical therapy, Manual therapy, Bobath, PNF, Sensoric Integration, psychomotorical therapy, elements of occupational therapy, AAT- animal assisted therapy, elements of speech therapy and many more).
The re-education of the nervous system is done by using the neuroplasticity of the brain. What is neuroplasticity? It is a process through which integral connections of the brain are reorganized. In other words, if a person loses the ability to sit after an accident due to mental injury, neuroplasticity would be used to reinvent/reorganize this ability.
If you want to find out what FMT can do for you or a person close to you come to one of our open days and we would provide you with a detailed explanation of how your problem would be carefully handled. Open Days are organized at various locations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. For more information please get in touch with us and click here.
We are there to help you so leave the worrying to us.
