Alzheimer's is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that occurs when nerve cells in the brain begin to die. It currently affects more than 40 million people worldwide, and estimates show an increase to 150 million by 2050.

Physical therapy contributes to improving the lives of Alzheimer's patients through exercises that affect both cognitive and motor functions. Even if it does not eliminate the problem, a correctly conceived and performed exercise program has a significant positive effect in delaying the onset of dementia or depression associated with the disease.

In order to obtain or preserve a satisfactory degree of functional independence of people with Alzheimer's, it is necessary to draw up a program built on an initial assessment of both motor skills and those of carrying out current activities of daily living.

We use evaluation scales through which the patient is scored according to the performance achieved in the management of daily situations (social activities, telephone use, home maintenance, self-administration of treatment, means used for travel, individual hygiene).

A physical therapy program for such a condition must be diversified, including passive and active exercises, walking exercises, and, most importantly, coordination exercises.

By diversifying physical therapy programs, the patient will be more active, more present, with better attention and coordination.


recuperare alzheimer

In general, the physical therapy program for people with Alzheimer's (performed with a minimum frequency of twice a week) involves a short warm-up period, followed by exercises related to the degree of motor impairment, then, finally, breathing and relaxation exercises, which aim at returning the functional parameters to normal values.

The frequency and intensity of the exercises are set so as not to endanger the patient's life, especially when he has other associated conditions, which do not allow too much effort. All exercises are performed by tracking blood pressure and pulse fluctuations, especially if the patient has a heart condition.

At Centrokinetic, alzheimer’s disease recovery is done in the Department dedicated to neurological recovery and begins with a check-up with one of our recovery doctors, who will assess the patient's health and configure the treatment plan, the patient will be evaluated. periodically by the medical team. Physical therapy sessions can be done in group sessions or individually.
