The necessary conditions have been created for this: all staff are trained in the rules of first aid, the center is equipped with resuscitation equipment and a special tunnel that communicates with the city hospital in Druskininkai, which allows, in case of unforeseen circumstances, to provide emergency medical care.
The work of the UPA rehabilitation center is based on a harmonious combination of classic proven techniques and modern scientific achievements.
The Rehabilitation Center in Lithuania accepts patients with a wide range of diseases, creating an individual program for everyone. Treatment begins with a diagnosis, and experienced medical professionals constantly monitor the rehabilitation process.
If there is a need to establish or clarify the diagnosis, the patient can be performed as simple laboratory tests as well as tested new modern methods of instrumental or functional diagnostics, such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiopulmonary stress testing (VO2Max), and functional examination James Cyriax etc.
UPA - Diagnostics
Functional testing “James Cyriax” is a system recognized and used in public and private rehabilitation centers in Germany and other European countries. The UPA Rehabilitation Center, representing the James Cyriax School, also provides specialist training.
The unique diagnostics and treatment methods of Cyriax are used by all kinesitherapists of the center. Testing and treatment using this method was improved in Germany at the Neuro-Orthopedic Institute of Manual Therapy (INOMT) together with specialists in biomedicine, neurophysiology, cybernetics specifically for the functional diagnosis of the whole organism. During testing, it is established exactly in which place the problem occurred, and what effect on the condition of the body can have anomalies of connective tissue or systemic diseases and diseases of internal organs. UPA specialists remind: it is not always necessary to treat where it hurts.
Cardiopulmonary stress testing, known as “VO2Max”, is an excellent opportunity for a comprehensive study of the metabolism of the body, respiratory, cardiac, circulatory, muscle systems and somatic response to physical activity. Testing provides a comprehensively objective and comprehensive assessment of the physical condition of the body.
