Physiotherapy treatment techniques

Our physiotherapists’ first step is to examine functional and developmental sensorimotor dysfunctions in a patient. These affect the ability to coordinate between stimulus perception and motor response, e.g., stepping on the brakes immediately when one hears/sees a danger while driving a car.

Specialised physiotherapy techniques are used to treat and remedy these disorders and allow the patient to achieve optimal, pain-free movement patterns.

The therapy also exercises an effect on functional disorders of internal organs, improves self-perception and perception of others, and reinforces social and psychological skills.

In order to guarantee our patients the best, most up-to-the-minute treatment, we engage in continuous training in globally-recognised treatment techniques.

Our treatments include, amongst others:

  • Bobath PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation)
  • Maitland manipulative therapy
  • Kaltenborn-Evjenth manipulative therapy
  • Cyriax
  • Klein-Vogelbach functional kinetics
  • McKenzie method
  • Spiral dynamics
  • Stecco method
  • Plantar reflexology massage
  • Craniosacral therapy
  • Osteopathy
  • Other

Locomotion studio - Greater success in shorter times

We have brought our decades of experience into equipping our new facility with an innovative, technologically advanced treatment room. Solely and exclusively “learning to walk again” therapies are carried out in the locomotion studio: Dysfunctions of varying degree can be treated here, all with the most suitable equipment for each specific requirement. The great advantage of carrying out exercises on this equipment, some of which we patented ourselves, is a more efficient and more effective therapy.

Learning to walk safely

Patients can learn to walk safely on every floor of the building. We have fitted the corridors with tracks and trolley systems; the patient is secured by means of a harness and can thus learn to walk again without the risk of tripping or falling, guided by the supervision of their physiotherapist.

The rehab garden

Our team has developed a rehab garden where patients can train outdoors and put their newly acquired skills into practice in a natural setting similar to that of everyday life. The course comprises stairs, bridges, a variety of surfaces and other obstacles commonly found in everyday situations, enabling the patient to steadily become accustomed to outside life. The doctor can also use the garden facilities to better evaluate whether the patient is ready to be discharged.

Indoor pool

We carry out an array of mobility therapy treatments in our modern indoor swimming pool with depth-adjustable floor and underwater cameras; in this reduced gravity environment, the patient is able to master targeted exercises more easily. All forms of hydrotherapy exercises can be carried out in the pool as the floor can be adjusted from 0 to 2 metres.
