or as prevention.
We can assist in the field of Neurology, for the recovery of peripheral or central nervous system injuries that may affect movement or cause pain. In the Cardiorespiratory area, we provide assistance with pathologies that cause increased secretions in the airways
or restriction of lung volume and capacity. In the Musculoskeletal field our practice helps in the avoidance of pain and injury. We also provide assistance after traumatic injuries, fractures, surgeries or pain.
Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
The Pelvic Floor is composed of the muscles and ligaments that form the base of the pelvis, which support and help maintain the function of the pelvic organs: the bladder, rectum and uterus.
Main pelvic floor disorders are urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, difficulty in defecating, faecal incontinence, pelvic pain, sexual symptoms, and pelvic organ prolapse.
Physiotherapy is the first conservative approach for rehabilitation
and prevention of these disorders, assisting also in preparation for labour and delivery.
Paediatric Respiratory Physiotherapy
Respiratory Physiotherapy is of a set of manual techniques which contribute to clearing the baby's airways.
It is recommended for any of the following symptoms: obstruction
of airways (wheezing, overproduction
of secretions) productive cough, rhinorrhoea (nasal discharge), difficulty in breathing and/or expelling secretions, and altered sleep, appetite
or behavioural patterns. If you observe any of these symptoms in your baby, respiratory physiotherapy
is an effective solution.
The major objective of Osteopathy is to restore the individual's balance, assuming that "The structure governs function" seeks to restore good mobility between the different tissues of the body, in order to facilitate its good function.
It uses manual techniques for diagnosis and treatment, based on knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology and biomechanics.
Paediatric osteopathy uses soft, painless manual techniques. We work with babies and children who suffer from torticollis, constipation and colic, babies who show discomfort with excessive crying, recurrent ear infections, plagiocephaly and other cranial deformities, gastroesophageal reflux, brachial plexus injury and problems with breastfeeding due to difficulty related to suction, among others.
Our osteopath, when assessing the baby, will check for the presence of adequate mobility and normal tension of all tissues, so as to rule out growth asymmetries and future neural compressions, such as the cranial nerves in the eye and those responsible for swallowing, as well as the tongue muscles, for example, which cross several intracranial structures. These structures should maintain normal movement in order to facilitate their correct function.
Global posture reeducation
It is a specialization of physiotherapy that assesses, treats and corrects pathologies of the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
A global postural approach to the patient, his problem and the consequences for his posture.
It can be done at any age, in an acute or chronic phase of the problem.

Fertility care is a gynaecological and reproductive health educational system based on self-observation and recording of cervical mucus according to a Vaginal Discharge Recording System (VRD), which allows the identification of various biomarkers.
It can be used to plan or space pregnancies by selecting fertile or infertile days according to the couple's intent.
However, more than a family planning method, it is a health monitoring system. Biomarkers such as length of menstrual cycle, length of post peak phase, pre-menstrual spotting, dry or continuous discharge cycles, intense menstrual pain, menstrual irregularities or heavy bleeding can guide medical diagnosis more accurately by promoting prevention and more targeted intervention.
This course was created by a mix of health professionals involved in family perinatal care to train and prepare parents for the birth of their children and the challenges of the first months of parenting.
Based on the most up to date medical evidence, this course, with its multi-disciplinary approach, is taught by a number of Power Clinic professionals. Through this course we can support families, before and after the birth of their children, using practical examples in line with the theoretical part of the curriculum.
