The goal of manipulative therapy is to resolve misalignments of your joints, muscles, connective tissues, and neutral structures. The primary goal is to reduce pain and discomfort and restore physiological function. The treatment has many aspects and represents a method for correcting malfunctions that is gentle to your joints. Depending on your needs joint mobilisations may be performed, weakened muscles strengthened, or shortened muscles stretched.
Conventional physiotherapy treats complaints usually associated with restrictions to activity or function such as may occur after operations, injuries, or in the wake of acute and chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Physiotherapy includes a variety of therapeutic interventions for pain relief, boosting metabolism and blood circulation, and building muscle. By learning a specific exercise programme, the flexibility, strength, coordination and endurance of the body is restored and maintained.
In addition to classic remedial gymnastics, our services also include remedial gymnastics on a neurophysiological basis. These treatment concepts are used with disorders of the central locomotor system caused by the damage to the brain.
Craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD) is an umbrella term for diseases caused by misalignment of the jaw or malfunctions of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The causes and symptoms of CMD are usually not clearly definable. The symptoms are often based on a complex combination of structural, functional, biochemical, or psychological dysregulation between the teeth, the temporomandibular joints, and the masticatory (chewing) muscles. This can result in such problems as headaches, migraines, or even malfunctioning of the entire musculoskeletal system. With targeted treatment of the affected area of the body, we can restore the delicate balance between the TMJ, your muscles, and your entire body.
Classic massage therapy stimulates your circulation, detoxifies your body, and improves your mental and physical sense of well-being. Targeted compression, tension, and stretching are used by your therapist to treat your muscles, skin, and connective tissues in a targeted area of your body.
Manual lymph drainage is a very gentle form of treatment for blocked lymph nodes. This treatment stimulates the lymphatic system and the accumulated lymph fluid is more effectively removed. The lymphatic system is the most important transport system in the human body. It carries away waste and contaminants such as that left by wake of surgery or disease. Swelling can occur and lymphatic fluid can accumulate especially after trauma injuries and surgeries, cancer treatment, or the removal of lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage improves the performance of the lymphatic system with better removal of lymphatic fluid and consequent reduction in swelling.
Heat therapy is used for muscle relaxation and pain relief always in combination with an active form of treatment.The local application of heat improves circulation and increases metabolic activity, which ultimately leads to more effective recuperation.
Cold therapy is used for relief of pain, swelling, and inflammation always in combination with an active form of treatment. A distinction is made between long-term and short-term application of ice. Long-term ice applications especially reduce muscle tension. Short-term ice applications activate the body and stimulate blood circulation.
Electrotherapy is only used in combination with an active form of treatment. This form of treatment uses an electrical current for the treatment of disorders and injuries. Targeted electrical pulses stimulate muscles and nerves and promote blood circulation to reduce pain and discomfort.
Ultrasound therapy is only used in combination with an active form of treatment. This medical procedure uses sound waves for targeted penetration of deep tissue layers. Micro-massage promotes blood circulation and stimulates metabolic activity to support the body’s own healing process. This form of therapy is particularly effective for fractures, tendonitis, and arthritis.
The primary goal is always an improvement in function and relief of pain. The kinesiotape is applied to your skin in various patterns. Targeted toning (creating tension) and detoning (reducing tension) patterns trigger skin sensors, which in turn influence your muscle and joint functions. Kinesiotape is also used to promote blood circulation and metabolic activity as well as regulate lymphatic drainage.
