How can general physiotherapy help you?
The goal of general physiotherapy is to restore the functions and the kinetic ability of the body as well as to improve and prophylactically preserve (keep) it. It helps with pain relief and increases mobility, coordination, strength or stamina.
Physiotherapy can be of help with the following problems
The possible aches and pains are manifold. Pains can develop over a longer period of time or illnesses and/or can also be caused by arthritis.
Back pains, neck aches, joint trouble or damaged discs are a few of the most common types of aches and pain.
Another pain group is pain after injuries. It can offer pain relief and possible full rehabilition after sports injuries (ligaments, tennis elbow and various traumata,fractures). It is also an option for postoperative care.
Specialities within physiotherapy
I offer you suitable therapies for all of the various problems mentioned above. The pain therapy takes place in nine different areas of physiotherapy.
After injuries or operations we help you to get back your ability to practice your sports activities. Additionally sports physiotherapy helps you to prevent sports injuries.
Manual therapy (Maitland and Mulligan)
Manual therapy is used with pain or functional disorders of muscles, joints or nerves. The physiotherapist mobilizes the concerned joint with their hands. Additionally there are exercises for stabilization, muscle expansion and special nerve tests.
Crafta-Conception- Cranio Facial Therapy Academy
This specific specialization in manual therapy refers to the treatment of problems regarding the head area of the patient. Pain in the jaw joints, cracking of the jaw and disposition, vertigo, tinnitus, headache as well as migraine are all possible problems that can be treated.
There are so called myofascial triggerpoints also known as muscle hardenings. They are very painful when pressure is applied. They can cause a radiating pain and lead to chronic pain which subsequently restricts your movement. This type of physiotherapy specifically treats those triggerpoints with its manual techniques.
Fascia distorsion model – FDM
This type of physiotherapy is applied if you have deformation or bonding in the fascias, that is in the connective tissue . Using the patient`s body language as the focal point, the physiotherapist can find out how the FDM concept can be effectively used.
Fascia techniques FAZER & Flossing
These two techniques support the fascia treatment by using additional technical devices. The FAZER-Method by ARTZT vitality uses additional stainless steel instruments which can perform necessary pressure to reach subjacent fascias.
If we work with Flossing, elastic bands are wrapped round the affected part of the body. These produce a compression of the affected tissue or joint. Meanwhile a certain movement or exercise is performed. As soon as the Floss band is removed, the area is stimulated by a special blood flow. Consequently bondings in the fascias can be released.
Kinesio Tapes are elastic, breathable adhesive tapes, that are attached onto specific parts of the body. Kinesio taping can reduce pain, influence muscle tension or stimulate the lymphatic flow. Additionally the bands can support the overall control over the movement as well as support the stability of the joints.
If the lymphatic flow is disrupted (ex .after an operation) the build up of fluid in the tissue can be relieved with this gentle type of physiotherapy.
Prevention is better than a quick remedy. To avoid health problems from starting, I am happy to give you preventive consultation concerning topics like an ergonomically correct position, specific back training or sports analysis.
