More about my work

How I work as a physiotherapist: 

The concept of physiotherapy is based on a holistic view and includes anamnesis, status, manual specific examination, functional diagnostics and planning of the patient's rehabilitation. The rehabilitation program must be based on the patient's unique needs, conditions and life situation. 


What I can help you with: 

-Muscular trigger points, muscle pain and muscle tension 

-Lumbar spine problems – low back pain, stiffness, dysfunctions, sciatica, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, Spondylolisthesis,  instability, postoperative rehab

 -Hip / Pelvic Disorders , dysfunction, instability, osteoarthritis, trochanterit, postoperative rehab 

-Chest/thoracic problems, dysfunction, stiffness, posture problems, tense and tired back muscles

-Neck problems - Neck disability, stiffness, dysfunction, headaches, dizziness, herniated discs, instability, postoperative rehab 

-Shoulder problems, impingement, frozen shoulder and inflammation of tendons and muscles. 



Treatment methods I use:

 Based on the patient's diagnosis, the following treatments can be offered:

 -mobilization according to different methods to regain function.

 -Pain treatment with laser, acupuncture, muscle stimulation or TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)  

-training program. 

-In addition to physiotherapy treatment, I also perform body composition analysis and nutritional counseling. I offer measurement of your body composition using Tanita Dual frequency BIA Technology .You get information on your weight, BMI, BMR (basal metabolism), fat percentage, fat mass (kg), muscle mass (kg), bone mass (kg), total body water percentage and visceral fat (belly fat deep within  your abdominal cavity, surrounding important organs). Studies have shown that obesity and, above all, increased visceral fat increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. With the help of the body composition analysis, you can get a clear overview of your physical status and also get information about the recommended and desired fat percentage and muscle mass based on your age group. You can evaluate the training or the effect of a diet on your body composition through measurements at regular intervals. You can also evaluate your muscle mass during rehab training.
