Functional Myofeedback Therapy (FMT)
We aim at providing a better quality of life by increasing functionality. Our ability may not necessarily make miracles happen but we end up pretty close. FMT stand for Functional Myofeedback Therapy and helps those who lost or never had basic physical functions. These include, such as walking, sitting, standing or fine motorical difficulties (drinking, eating, playing an instrument, etc.).
FMT is a key addition to the therapies used for rehabilitation purposes. It uses the neuroplasticity of the brain. The processes of re-mapping, re-educating and re-programming are used to recognize the needed physical movements and help to implement functions again.
This therapy helps children and adults suffering from
- Stroke (CVA)
- Brain injury
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Sport injuries
- Various other neurological diseases (bell’s palsy, M. Parkinson, movement disorders)
Therapeutic approaches for SCI
The injury of the spinal cord causes serious irreversible damage in most cases. There are different therapies used to tackle this problem. However, Functional Myofeedback Therapy is one of the best therapy approaches with SCI.
A strong therapy to regulate spasticity
There is no doubt that muscular spasms often determine if you can use an arm, hand or leg for certain functions.
The Functional Myofeedback therapy (FMT) is one of the most productive therapies to deal with muscular spasms. FMT helps to reduce the severity of pain and helps in performing day to day physical activities with less problems and a better functionality.
The FMT is based on working with a modiﬁed EMG and a functional exercising program to re-educate the nervous system with all senses (mostly motorical ways). This is based on neuroplasticity.
There is a big diﬀerence between FMT and all other already existing feedback therapies In case of FMT, the other therapies used as a combination differ for each patient. Each participant gets a custom therapy plan according to the goals and obtained results.
Animal Assisted Therapy
Why do we work with dogs?
Dogs bring a lot of extra motivation during our therapy sessions. They add fun, they either sooth or activate our clients and one of the most important added values is that it’s scientifically proven that dogs increase the production of the hormone oxytocin.
