Egyéb kategória | 2021. 11. 16.

Sleep disorders are often included in vicious circles connected to or even prodromal to many other diseases or problems such as diverse cardiovascular diseases, breathing disorders, metabolic dysfunction, immunodeficiency (e.g. multiple sclerosis), fatigue, increased pain perception, reduced performance, neuropsychological deficits, an increased risk for accidents and falls, and psychic and neurological problems (e.g. Parkinson’s disease or dementia). 

Billions of people seek help every day for the  management of their sleep disorders.
Physiotherapists are definitely an essential part of this help.

This is why Aion Solutions’ “Elysium Academy” is organizing this 4-days online course with the precious help of Dr. Cristina Staub,  an experienced physical therapist with dissertation in Sleep Medicine and an active member in the special interest group of sleeping disorders of the World Physiotherapy (World Confederation for Physical Therapy), who is going to help you learn more about the diagnostic procedures and therapeutic options that physiotherapists can apply in order to manage a sleep disorder.
