The causes of craniocerebral trauma can be radically different in each patient – from an injury due to a blow to the head, a fall, a work accident, to a car accident. Regardless of the causative agent and the extent of the injury, everyone has a chance for improvement and recovery!
What are craniocerebral injuries?
In the most basic terms, craniocerebral injuries are injuries to the bones of the skull, the soft tissues of the head, the meninges, and the brain that result from an external factor. They are diagnosed with high incidence, disability and mortality.
Consequences can affect motor functions and have an impact on general sensory perceptions
How is it treated?
Craniocerebral trauma is a life-threatening condition and requires specialized monitoring and treatment in a controlled medical environment. Injury in each patient is strictly individual and treatment depends on the guidelines that are determined during the functional assessment examination.
The most common disorders!
Movement disorders and restriction of movement
Craniocerebral trauma can cause weakness or poor sensation in the extremities. Together we can regain much of the lost movement and sensation.
Changes in muscle tone and sensory disturbances
Depending on the type of trauma, severely increased/decreased muscle tone may be seen in the affected limbs. Symptoms such as numbness, tingling, partial paralysis and reduced sensation are present.
General cerebral symptoms
Headache, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, emotional disturbances, and partial or total memory loss are not atypical signs of this condition. Alteration or loss of speech function is also possible.
Difficulty with activities of daily routine
Often, these patients have difficulty in their lifestyle and daily routine. This includes coping with personal hygiene, housework and food preparation.
What are we targeting to influence?
The capacity for perception
Intensive rehabilitation in combination with Tyromotion's devices facilitate the patient's adaptation to the environment, increase cognitive potential and improve the psycho-emotional state.
Cognitive abilities relate to the way a person understands the world and functions in it. They are mental abilities and/or processes and are part of almost every human action while we are awake. Through therapy with conventional and robotic methods we influence cognitive abilities.
Speed of reaction
One of the main physical qualities we emphasize in our centre is the speed of reaction.
By doing so, we help patients be more sure of themselves in common and uncommon situations in their daily lives.
Gross motor skills
Seemingly elementary movements can be a major challenge for patients with more severe brain injury. The familiar command "left-right, left-right" may sound startling to such a person, or it may be just the beginning of the road to recovery.
Balance, coordination and walking
These components always go hand-in-hand and our main task is to influence them as much as possible. Our certified specialists use internationally and internationally recognized methodologies that aim for a quick and maximum recovery.
