The area of activity of this medical specialty includes preventive health education and patients suffering from pathologies of the Locomotor Apparatus, neurological, child and developmental pathologies, vascular, lymphatic, cardiorespiratory, pelvic floor, communication pathologies, etc.

The gym at Hospitales San Roque in Maspalomas is equipped with: treatment booths, wall bars, steps, incline bench, Rocher cage, hand exercise table, cervical and lumbar traction device, stationary bicycle, treadmill, circuit with ramps, parallel bars, stairs, pulleys, mechanotherapy, and wobble board. Some of the devices available are: analgesic electrotherapy / stimulant currents (TENS, Trabert, Interferential, etc.), magnet therapy, laser therapy, ultrasound, shortwave, microwave, infrared, paraffin, iontophoresis and sonophoresis.

Our staff is made up of a rehabilitation specialist, physical therapists and clinical and administrative assistants who treat the following disorders:

Pathologies of the Locomotor Apparatus (the musculoskeletal system)

  • Rachis: cervicalgia, lumbago, scoliosis, slipped disc, spinal stenosis, kyphosis, exercises for pregnant women.
  • General: arthrosis and rheumatic diseases.
  • Trauma: fractures, dislocations and sprains.
  • Postoperative care: hip prosthesis, knee replacement, post-operative care for meniscal tears, ACL.
  • Pathologies of soft parts: tendonitis, bursitis and tenosynovitis

Pathologies of the nervous system

  • Central: Stroke (hemiplegia), TBI, Parkinson’s.
  • Peripherical: radiculopathies, entrapment neuropathies (carpal tunnel syndrome), paralysis and peripheral nerves.
  • Child pathologies: valgus flat-foot, Genu valgum/varum, torticollis, plagiocephaly. Infantile cerebral palsy, obstetric brachial palsy.

Other pathologies

  • Lymphedema
  • Pelvic Floor Pathology (urinary incontinence or faecal incontinence)
  • Vertigo
  • Respiratory Rehabilitation (COPD, asthma, bronchiectasis). 
  • We stablish guidelines for orthoses and technical aids.

Invasive techniques

  • Infiltrations: corticosteroids, anaesthetics, botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid and nerve blocks.
  • Dry puncture

Physio-aesthetics Unit

We work with INDIBA ® ACTIV THERAPY, which has more than 170 references and scientific articles, Bachelor’s and doctoral theses that support its effectiveness.

It is indicated for the treatment of joint pain (arthritis, bursitis), muscle pain (plantar fasciitis, muscle rupture), pelvic floor (incontinence, postpartum, prostatitis), myofascial treatment (trigger points) and physio-aesthetics.

Benefits of INDIBA

  1. It stimulates the proliferation of stem cells.

The Proionic System increases the proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells by more than 25% compared to the control group without affecting their pluripotency.

  1. The thermal effects persist after the active treatment ends.

The thermal effects are fundamental to understand the mechanism of action of INDIBA® ACTIV. The thermal increase achieved after the treatment is significantly greater with the resistive treatment than with the capacitive treatment and continues after the treatment is finished.

  1. It improves the intensity and volume of blood flow.

The doctoral thesis "Physiological and Clinical Effects of Radiofrequency-based Therapy", presented at the University of Hertfordshire (United Kingdom) in 2017, showed that changes in blood flow occur at least two centimetres deep in response to the cutaneous application of INDIBA ® treatment.

INDIBA ® ACTIV THERAPY in Physio-aesthetics:

  • Facial hypotonia, ageing, blemishes, scars, acne...
  • Postpartum abdomen, weight loss, ageing, stretch marks...
  • Oedematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy (cellulite) in legs, scars…
