Recovery from sports injuries
For quick and accurate recovery after a sports injury, we apply treatment protocols, new techniques, innovative treatments combined with experience and physiotherapy, so that the professional or amateur athlete can return to their sporting activity as soon as possible.
Occupational therapy is the science that aims to promote health, prevent or compensate for the complications of a permanent disability and preserve patient’s functionality. It is aimed at people with mental, physical, developmental and / or emotional disorders and uses treatments to help individuals not only improve their basic motor functions and their reasoning abilities, but to compensate for the permanent loss of function.
THESEUS occupational therapists achieve this result by helping individuals become able to carry out activities that enhance their ability to participate in daily living activities or by modifying their physical environment in order to better support their participation.
The functionality of a person is restored through pleasant activities such as painting, playing, pottery, pastry, embroidery, textile work, etc. Α careful analysis and modification of the patient’s personal space is designed following a visit at their home.
Physical therapy uses light, water, heat, electricity and various other mechanical and non-mechanical means to accelerate the process of tissue healing and pain reduction and edema.
At Theseus, our treatments are fully customized in accordance with each patient’s needs, based on detailed evaluation conducted by our scientific rehabilitation team.
Patients with brain damage (stroke, craniocerebral injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis) often present aphasia, dysarthria and apraxia, as well as swallowing and dysphagia disorders.
At THESEUS, we carry out a comprehensive assessment of speech (oral and written), voice, and chewing – swallowing disorders by formulating a personalized rehabilitation program for children and adults. Our goal is to minimize communication difficulties, which may be due to neurological, developmental or functional causes, while enhancing the patient’s skills and avoiding complications or worsening of neurological disorders.
Music therapy is aimed at patients with aphasic disorders, geriatric patients, patients with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and pediatric patients. At THESEUS we set personalized therapeutic goals for each treatment according to each person’s needs, encouraging positive behavioral changes to improve their quality of life.
Specifically, with regard to people with developmental disorders, music therapy aims to achieve:
- Creative expression.
- Developing speech, encouraging the individual to use their voice as a means of expression.
- Emotional support.
- Developing self-esteem and initiative.
- Promoting sociality, in particular enhancing the capabilities each person has in order to develop communication skills and build interpersonal relationships
- Cultivating a therapeutic framework in which the individual can experience and express a variety of emotions while developing greater awareness and understanding these emotions.
- Improving one’s quality of life through the experiences they receive during therapy by learning to share, express, give, and receive.
- Cultivating attention, concentration and memory.
Psychological evaluation is a process that involves gathering information from many sources in order to draw conclusions about the cognitive and emotional functioning as well as the personality of a person. It is performed through the use of psychometric tools and contributes significantly to the diagnostic process and subsequent therapeutic planning.
The treatment program for neuropsychological evaluation and cognitive rehabilitation is aimed at people whose cognitive functions are impaired, mainly after neurological disorders.
- Attention disorders
- Memory disorders
- Executive dysfunctions
- Visual Spatial Disorders
- Language disorders
- Lack of Communication and Information
Therapeutic exercise improves fitness, stamina, and prevents and / or reduces risk factors by enhancing the patient’s potential.
At THESEUS, we create a structured program of specialized, personalized exercises where the patient uses their body movements to regain the normal function of an injured tissue (muscle) or to maintain or even improve their existing physical condition.
Acupuncture is based on the theory that some of the body’s energy pathways related to the route of the main nerves or groups of neurons play an important role in the functioning of the human body. The mechanical stimulation performed by Theseus trained acupuncture physicians, aims to the restoration of this disturbed flow of energy.

Massaging is mainly aimed at facilitating the circulation of lymphatic fluid, but it also directly affects the nerve endings that lie beneath the surface of the skin. Theseus physical therapists are specialized in the relief of mastectomy edema (lymph node removal), high blood pressure (edema in the lower extremities) or long air travel, etc.
Athletic chiropractic care:
One of the most appropriate techniques to repair sports injuries, as it keeps the tissues in good shape, mobilizing all those involved in movement. This speeds up healing, increases elasticity and improves the range of motion. It can be applied before, during and after each match or training session.

At THESEUS we take advantage of the properties of water in combination with other hydrotherapeutic methods, such as kinesiotherapy or the use of whirlpool baths to improve and maintain the motion of stiff joints. Special therapeutic exercises are added to speed up the time of recovery and prevent complications.
