Iria Rabell Santana

Since the beginning of my career, I have had a special interest in understanding the mechanics of pain and the physical approach to therapeutic treatment of pain. This interest, together with my vocation, drives me to constantly update my knowledge and training in the latest advances in physiotherapy.

I have had the chance to train in advanced manual therapy and to deepen my expertise in puncture techniques, such as dry puncture, homeopathic mesotherapy, and electropuncture.

While specializing in neurology,[NT1]  I had the opportunity to enjoy the experience of staying in France for 5 years by training and working with new technologies, such as robotic exoskeletons, Lokomat, Armeo@power, Kinetec and latest-generation prostheses.

Thanks to my training and experience in the treatment of spinal pathologies, I have the privilege of working today with the excellent team of Instituto Clavel, a team that fully shares my vocation and desire to improve every day.
