Department of Physical Rehabilitation Medicine

We provide rehabilitation services, especially for neuromuscular diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy and motor neuron diseases which are rare, intractable and progressive, with the aim of helping patients with various symptoms and prognoses. We cover all functional impairments, including movement disorders, deconditioning from any reasons (like pneumonia, bone fracture, surgery etc.), cognitive dysfunctions, swallowing difficulty, articulatory disorder, respiratory disorder due to respiratory muscle weakness or neurological symptom , and any troubles they have with of daily life activities. To improve those impairments as much as possible, we provide self-training programs, supportive exercises, speech and swallowing therapy, respiratory care and assistive devices such as orthosis, wheel chairs and communication aids.
