Osteoporosis Rehabilitation Therapy (AktivOsteoporosis™)
Our AktivOsteoporosis™ program has been developed in collaboration with the Institute of Osteology and Biomechanics, Germany, follows a basic three-stage approach in its treatment plan:
Comprehensive physical tests for Bone Mineral Density and an analysis of the patient’s musculoskeletal, nervous system and overall balance and coordination, counselling on the functional abilities and risk factors that pertain to each individual.
A systematic physiotherapy plan has proven to increase overall bone density by 1% per year. Based on an individual’s needs and physical fitness level, we devise a systematic training package that includes exercises for strength and balance, aerobic and resistance training and postural correction. The highly specialized Vibrafit is also offered in some cases – a technology which helps reduce a patient’s potential fall rate and increases overall bone muscle and strength when combined with other exercises.
Proper nutrition remains the cornerstone for the prevention and rehabilitation of osteoporosis.
AktivOrtho now brings to India its exclusive and holistic metabolic balance®/weight management program. Consisting of four phases, it optimizes and adjusts the body’s bio-chemistry to re-balance hormones and enzyme levels, thus promoting fat burning, decreasing fat storage and activating anti-ageing hormones. Devised by Dr Wolf Funfack, an internist and nutrition medicine specialist, in collaboration with Sylvia Buerkle, this award-winning program is specifically tailored to each individual’s body measurements, blood count and medical history. Over the last decade, it has achieved tremendous success with 600,000 patients across 28 countries.
The benefits of following the AktivOsteoporosis program include:
- Better postural awareness
- Pain-free life
- Considerable improvement in bone density
- Reduction in bone loss
- Enhanced mobility
