FAQ's

 

What is physiotherapy?

 

Physiotherapy is a paramedical profession that works with specific means in order to improve functioning of the human musculoskeletal system. The passive means are hands-on techniques. Machines being used are ultrasound and electrical impulses. The active parts are exercise and physical activity to train physiological qualities like coordination, flexibility, stamina and power.

 

What is Manual Therapy? 

 

Manual Therapy is a specialization for Physiotherapists to examine the function of the musculoskeletal system in more detail. It aims to find the “cause of the cause” of a disease or malfunction, testing e.g. the mobility of a nerve and the effectiveness of an applied technique  by re-assessment. Manual Therapy is also using Manipulation of joints and is open to different methods like deep tissue massage. I am working with the Maitland© Concept.
