Physiotherapy

The general physiotherapy aims to improve the agility and functions of the body in different medical areas: orthopaedics, casualty surgery, gynaecology, urology and disorders of the heart and circulation system.

Trough direct, invidually designed gymnastic exercises and stretching we aim to improve and eliminate the physical restrictions. If needed we use different, additional massage techniques.

In addition and for the improvement of the overall treatment we can also offer further options such as heat treatments, e.g. natural mud packs and ice.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy treats functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system (joints, muscles and their interaction) through specific, direct manual grips and mobilization techniques (used for disorders of the joints and blockades). In addition stretching as well as techniques for the soft bodyparts are used for muscles and tendons.

Manual therapy can be used for various fields of the body. The area starts at the joints of the toes through all further joints of the body, expecially knee, hips, ISG, the whole spinal column, the upper extremities all the way to the mandibular joint.

Massage
The classic medical massage is used to directly loosen up the musculcar system and the adhesion of the bodily tissue. This way pain is reduced, muscular metabolism stimulated and the blood circulation improved. Through heat treatments such as natural mud packs or hot air, the effect can be even more intensified.
Natural mud

Natural mud is one of the oldest remedies, which leads not only to the release of anti-inflammatory substances but also to the emission of minerals that are embedded in the mud as well as trace elements and vitamins into the skin and deeper tissue layers. This leads to a significant pain release.

Through the slowly increasing warming the application is also suitable for patients suffering from cardiovascular dieases.

Sling table
In sling table therapy the whole body or parts of the body are being hung in cloth slings. Through the relief of the joints e.g. the spinal column the body is being relieved: Limited mobility and/or painful movements are being considerably relieved. The state resembles the floating in water.
Limphatic drainage

With the help of the lymphatic liquid poison, cellular waste products and degenerated cells are conducted out of the body.

A lymphatic congestion /lymphedema can be caused by various different reasons such as an accident, a surgery, an infection and injuries.

Through the lymphatic drainage, the soft and gentle massaging of the lymphatic vessels, the drainage of the lymphatic liquid is stimulated: As a resullt the swelling is reduced and the mobility and agility is encouraged.

Bobath therapy

The Bobath-Concept is a diverse, interdisciplinary approach in the therapy of patients with disorders of the central nervesystem. The goal ist to regain daily physical functions, that were lost after f.ex. a stroke, a TBI, due to neurological diseases as f.ex. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson´s disease etc.

With support of the therapist the self-activity of the patient is demanded, stimulated and revitalized.

Fascial therapy

Every single fibre of the bodys muscular system gets its mobility from the flexible fascials, who are responsible not only for the sliding capacity of the muscles, but who also transport nutrients to all areas of the body.

Due to a wide range of medical studies on the function of fascials they play an increasingly important role within the clinical field: overloading, false posture, monotonous movements, inappropriate or excessive loading irritate and disturb the statics and dynamic of the fascial system.

Gentle posture leads to a shortening and thickening of the fasicals, which causes the loss of their elasticity.

With the fascial therapy the viscoelasticity of the fascial tissue is improved and the sliding ability inbetween the fascial layers is regained:

  1. Through stretching techniques of the long musclechains (=fascial stretch)
  2. Self-treatment with f.ex. the fascial-roll (fascial release)
  3. Improvement of the self-perception through direct techniques
Respiratory therapy

The physio-therapeutic respiratory therapy represents an essential component of the non-medicinal therapy of diseases of the respiratory organs.

The goal of these active and passive techniques is to contribute to the preservation, improvement and restoration of the best possible respiratory function.

Craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a manual treatment method where the bodys natural self-healing power is stimulated through soft graps. The therapy works with the cranio-sacral rhythm, which shows itself in the soft pulsating of the brain and the spinal fluid (going from the cranium= skull to the sacrum).

Via the connective tissue the craniosacrale rhythm is perceptible throughout the whole body. During the treatment the rythmic movements are being supported and harmonized. Tenseness, pain and limited mobility are being removed, the immune system is strengthened, die vital functions are stabilized.

Acupressure

Acupressure is a therapeutic practice that origininates from traditional chinese medicine and is closely related to acupuncture. The skins points of stimulation are being activated through pressure (manual or by using sticks) instead of using needles.

This way pain, different forms of bodily complaints and stress can be reduced.

Kinesio-taping

The colorful, elastic, tapes influence the tension and orientation of the muscular, lighten pain and support the function of the joints. They are widely used in todays sports- and therapy practice.

Before applying the tape the skin should be dry and ideally shaved. The tape should stay on the skin for usually 5-7 days in order to unfold its positive effect.

Cold treatment
Cold treatments (with ice pack or ice stick) are used at contusions and pompous joints. Painfull states of irritation as e.g. irritation of a tendon ( “tennis elbow” and “golfer arm”) can be treated with ice as well: The cold works subsiding, anti-inflammatory and relives pain by blocking the nerves forwarding of the stimulus.
