The duration of the DBC functional treatment session averages about 60 minutes and take place twice a week. The length of the treatment program is determined by the severity of the condition. At the beginning of the treatment and at the end of each treatment module there is a one-on-one assessment session of between 30 and 90 minutes.
The DBC baseline assessment utilizes the questionnaires that consist of a clinical and functional evaluation and yield a bio-psychosocial profile for the patient. The resulting profile is used in the design of an individual treatment plan and in assessing prognostic factors for good recovery. This is a one-on-one session between 60 and 90 minutes long.
The individualized treatment plan in DBC functional rehabilitation combines specific exercises using the DBC treatment devices together with systematic cognetive behavioural support. Later, DBC also utilizes individual or small group training to best suit the profile of the patient for the most successful rehabilitation.
The outcome evaluation provides information on the progress and treatment outcomes as opposed to the initial measured parameters of the baseline assessment. Progress evaluation also enables timely adjustments of the treatment plan when necessary. These evaluations may also be repeated for maintenance treatment.
Duration during this phase is between 20 and 60 minutes.
The results obtained with the DBC functional rehabilitation process have been proven to be sustained through continued activity. This continued activity may be the patient’s own activities, the maintenance program supplied by or may be the DBC conditioning program with or without supervision.
