IAB Academy offers systematic and sustained interdisciplinary accredited training to the patients and relatives as well as to physicians, nurses and health professionals on the relevant aspects of movement disorders.
Through this training design, the ability to obtain the multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of movement disorders should become part of the own thinking and practice.
Dystonia, whether limited to focal body parts or spread, whether occurring in childhood or in adulthood, are not rare, but little known, and many patients often have to wait for the right diagnosis and therapy for many years.
Spasticy, for example as a result of stroke, accident or inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, is a frequent but still often not sufficiently and well treated field of neurology.
Parkinson’s Disease is frequent and increase with the number of elderly people but can also affect younger people.
The complex and rapidly expanding area of this field can only be met by an interdisciplinary therapeutic team.
Further movement disorders such as Tremor, Chorea Huntington, Tourette Syndrome, Myclonia, psychogenic and rare movement disorders, as well as Persistent Vegetative Status almost all are chronic, thus generating a huge burden of disease. The growing number of new therapeutic options represents a special interdisciplinary challenge.
