The concept of neuroplasticity is relatively new and represents the future in many fields of medicine and post-rehabilitation physical therapy.
Today, the old thesis that a damaged brain cell cannot recover is obsolete. Neurons can regenerate, and another group of neurons can take over the destroyed function of a part of the brain by creating new synapses between neurons in damaged parts of the brain, which is achieved in neurorehabilitation by repeating the movements of damaged limbs with visual and dopamine-driven stimulation.
Recently, we have faced an epidemic of various neurological disorders. The most common are MS, cerebral palsy, people suffering from stroke, with a third of all patients permanently disabled. Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant burden for society, and they dramatically impair the health and quality of life of patients and their families.
