Craniocerebral Injuries

If you have suffered a craniocerebral injury, then take the first step towards recovery by visiting PALLADION. Stratos Kavvadas, the star of the Greek national beach volley team, had suffered very heavy craniocerebral injury following a road accident. His sports education taught him not to give up! Thanks to his diligence during the rehabilitation period, he was able to say, just a few months after the accident, “I feel like it never happened”. This year, he returned to the championship, ready to bring victories to the Greek national team and to show us that nothing can stop the greatest fight of the man: the fight for his life! Together, we will give and win that fight!

In preparing a personalised rehabilitation programme, we consider the following:

  • The patient’s history
  • Their lifestyle and daily living needs
  • Their psychological state

  • Any form of special conditions that may arise during or after the treatment

The PALLADION team is, right from the start, an ally for the person having suffered a craniocerebral injury, while aiming at improving their functionality.
