Physiotherapy is not a specific treatment technology, but consists of various therapy possibilities and treatment concepts:

Bobath therapy

Bobath therapy is a holistic, problem-related procedure for purposeful rehabilitation of humans with innate or acquired illnesses of the central or peripheral nervous system e.g. multiple sclerosis, stroke, tumor illnesses, Polyneuropathy, etc. A goal of the treatment is the optimization of function and the preservation of independence in everyday life and concomitantly preservation of the optimum quality of life.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy

This is an alternative treatment method developed from Osteopathy. It is predominantly a manual procedure implemented with the therapist’s hands at the head (Cranium) and sacrum. The goal is to activate the self healing forces of humans and to support existing resources.
Indications for this procedure: whiplash, fall- compression trauma, shoulder/neck problems, back pain, headache/migraine, sleep disturbance, following complicated childbirth and etc.

We provide instruction for an individually prepared home program and health conscious behavior for everyday life.

Manual Lymph drainage and compression therapy (Lymphocytic Physiotherapy)

In lymphocytic physiotherapy, different techniques and measures are used in order to treat edema and edema illnesses. Edema is a swelling in the tissue due to interstitial fluid or lymphocytes, which cannot flow off. Edema develops after injuries in accidents or as a consequence of surgical interference, e.g. in connection with tumor operations.

Manual therapies after Maitland and NAP (neuromuscular artho ossäre plasticity)

With the hands, purposeful passive and/or active impulses are applied to nerves, joints, and muscles, in order to improve mobility, alleviate pain and a improve function.

Myofascial trigger point treatment and Dry Needling

Trigger points are hard strands in the musculature, which cause localized pain, which in addition, often radiate to other body regions. These trigger points are treated according to a specific manual method. After consultation during trigger point treatment also acupuncture-needles can be used, the so-called "Dry Needling ".

Myofascial soft part treatment

Intensive partial-massages, stretching, etc

Passive applications

Cold and hot packs, and massages are supplementary measures to alleviate pain for improvement of blood circulation of the musculature and the connective tissue as well as for relaxation.

PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation)

A form of flexibility training that involves both the stretching and contraction of the muscle group being targeted. Sufficient resistance is applied to inhibit the pathological movement. Through the use of different techniques the goal of a muscle strengthening or a muscle stretching can be achieved. PNF is used to help athletes and other persons make quick gains to improve performance.
