Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy

Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy at RAK Hospital

The department provides treatment and rehabilitation services for inpatients and outpatients. Our physiotherapists treat a variety of conditions and work with patients of all ages ranging from pediatric to the elderly. Physiotherapy is integral to maximizing recovery following an injury, illness or chronic disease. Reducing pain, improving strength, balance, coordination and movement aims to maximize your ability to participate in everyday activities, prevent complications and promote health.Some of the services offered include rehabilitation for sports injury cases, spinal injury cases, joint pathologies, post-surgical rehabilitation and rehabilitation of neurology cases.

Various technologies are used to offer the best available treatment

 Hydrotherapy

Rehabilitation in water offers unique advantages compared to other methods. The underwater treadmill is the next step in Physiotherapy. It offers the possibility to perform stationary walking exercises. In combination with a movable swimming pool floor the depth can be changed as per the requirement.

Our aquatic rehabilitation program consists of supervised exercises performed under water. Swimming is not a prerequisite skill. Patients can perform each exercise while standing in the water, holding onto the side of the pool or using a floating device. The water provides a safe and effective method for healing injuries, restoring patient confidence and increasing mobility with each completed exercise.

Its a safe way to perform running or other exercises after injuries or surgeries. 

 Robowalk

The h/p/cosmos Robowalk system is designed for the analysis and treatment of gait disorders in neurologic, orthopaedic or geriatric rehabilitation. In addition to the treadmill it includes a unit for adaptive visual cueing through the projection of gait patterns on the treading surface. Virtual feedback training happens simultaneously with the help of a large monitor mounted in front of the treadmill. 

This patient-pending system utilizes the leading technology for motion support, mobilization, locomotion, gait training, functional training and orthopedic rehabilitation.

Gait and coordination training using virtual feedback

The patient moves in a virtual walking environment and whilst observing his own footprints, performs tasks that require a continual variation of his gait and balancing. Postural control as well as coordination skills are checked and trained as a result.

The various modules allow the training to be individually adapted to each patient.

 David Spine Concept

David Spine Concept is a comprehensive evaluation and treatment concept for back disorders. The concept uses carefully targeted movement and controlled loading to reverse the deconditioning syndrome related to back pain.

Individualized programs are planned based on a questionnaire, physical evaluations and tests. Specially designed devices provide a safe and effective way of improving mobility, strength and spinal coordination.

Most back disorders can be treated successfully with the David Spine Concept. These include unspecific back pain, degenerative changes, herniations and post operative situations. Successful treatment requires patient consent and motivation to participate.

 The following services are available:

- Electro therapy

- Ultrasound therapy

- Shock wave therapy

- Heat/Ice therapy

- Paraffin therapy

- Cervical and lumbar traction

- Kinesiology tape

- Manual therapy
