Physical Medicine
and Rehabilitation.

ABC Medical Center Rehabilitation Medicine is dedicated to the recovery, restoration of health and reintegration into the environment of those patients with functional limitation or aftereffects that condition disability through comprehensive care programs where a diagnosis is made and the proper treatment.

The disciplines available at the rehabilitation service are:

Physical therapy:

It is the discipline that designs a care plan for each patient depending on their needs and objectives, therapeutically applying physical means (water, heat, sound, electricity, light, and mechanics), exercise and specific techniques to cure or improve a pathological condition of the neuro-osteo-muscular system and achieve the integration of the patient in the biopsychosocial sphere.

Speech and swallowing therapy:

It is the discipline that is dedicated to the study of human communication, its development and its disorders. By assessing the speech, language, cognitive communication, and swallowing skills of children and adults, speech-language pathologists can identify communication problems and the best way to treat them.

Occupational therapist:

According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, it is the therapeutic use of care, work and play activities to increase functional independence, increase development and prevent disability; may include adaptation of tasks or environment to achieve maximum independence and to increase quality of life.

Cognitive therapy

It is the discipline that evaluates the mechanism of cognitive functions such as attention, learning, memory, language, emotions, consciousness, thinking, reasoning, and designs strategies through batteries and establishes strategies to improve the affected areas according to the pathology.

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) classifies speech disorders as:

Articulation disorders.

Fluency disorders.

Resonance or voice disorders.

Oral dysphagia/eating disorders.
