Brain tumors called pathological neoplasms form in different brain parts. These formations are overgrown tissues that differ in morphological features and histological types. Also, neoplasms of the brain are divided into benign and malignant. The latter is dangerous, but even with benign tumors, there are significant risks of damage and complications.
Brain tumors are an extensive group of pathological processes, which include:
Each tumor process is dangerous since, with the growth of the neoplasm, compression of the structures of the brain occurs, and there is an increase in intracranial pressure. The characteristics of the clinical case and the resulting disorders depend on where the tumor is localized, what size it is, what brain structures it presses on, and a host of other factors.
It is almost impossible to predict the vector of progression of the tumor process in advance. For this reason, a complete diagnosis is essential, which allows you to determine the optimal direction of treatment. But rehabilitation is no less important because even after successful and effective treatment, most patients need to cope with the consequences of the disease and return to normal life.
Many reasons and factors provoke the occurrence of brain tumors. Much depends on the characteristics of the tumor process. In some cases, cancer may be congenital, or its origin cannot be established at all. But the most common and likely predisposing factors include:
Depending on the characteristics of the tumor process, the location of the tumor, its size, benign or malignant course, and other factors, the approach to treatment may differ radically. However, there are only two forms of therapy for neoplasms of this localization:
Rehabilitation measures after treatment of brain tumors (including after neoplasm removal) are individual for each patient. The key to developing rehabilitation programs at Kliniken Schmieder is the nature of the neurological impairment experienced by the patient.
Our specialists individually develop rehabilitation programs, considering the patient’s needs. The main goal is to restore lost functions and abilities and improve the quality of life. If the lost capabilities cannot be restored, rehabilitators focus on the patient’s adaptation to new living conditions.
Thus, rehabilitation after treatment of a brain tumor includes:
After treating a brain tumor, many patients need to restore hearing, vision, speech apparatus, etc. Rehabilitation programs can include many other areas, and their features always depend on the clinical case. Therefore, rehabilitation at Kliniken Schmieder is always adaptive and explicitly tailored to the individual patient’s needs.
