Theoretical and practical aspects of biophysiotherapy
Josep Pous, Medical Director at Cematec-Teknon de Barcelona
In this clinical colloquium, the different treatment methods used in Biophysiotherapy such as Multifrequency Laser Therapy, Shock Waves, Modular Electromagnetic Waves, Mechanotherapy, Growth Factors, Stem Cells, will be exposed. The different mechanisms of action will be discussed at the cellular level such as mechanotransduction, mechanotranscription, depolarization of membarane or at the mitochondrial level through REDOX mechanisms, to achieve biological effects at the cellular and tissue levels. Biophysiotherapy aims to apply the possibilities of diagnosis and treatment of the laboratory (biosensors, nanobiosensors, quantum dots) to the medical practice with fewer drugs and fewer surgeries.
Dr. Josep Pous, specialist in Orthopedic Surgery, Traumatology and Rehabilitation, works at Cematec-Teknon of Barcelona (Center of Advanced and Technological Medicine) using the latest technologies in arthroscopy and prosthesis of the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle joints. Dr. Pous is a pioneer in the use of new non-invasive treatments for all musculoskeletal pathology and has incorporated new methods for its integral treatment.
