Electrotherapy or electromedicine is the term for therapeutic applications of electric current in medicine and physical therapy.
The electrical currents or current pulses have only a very low voltage and are therefore completely harmless for the patient. Point current impulses have an activating effect: blood circulation is accelerated, muscles are stimulated, nerves are stimulated. In this way, electrotherapy can reduce pain and promote recovery.
TMJ treatment (CMD)
Malpositions of the jaw or the temporomandibular joint can have very painful consequences. The so-called craniomandibular dysfunctions (CMD) can, for example, cause discomfort in the neck, back and facial area.
In our physiotherapy practice, our therapists are very familiar with craniomandibular dysfunctions. During treatment, we communicate with your dentist, for example, to provide you with the best possible treatment.
In kinesiotaping, the tape is applied to the skin or the affected muscle of the patient. Depending on how the tape is applied, it has a toning or detonating effect. It strengthens or reduces the tension on the skin.
Kinesiotaping is used for inflammations and injuries of muscles, ligaments or joints. It serves to stabilise without restricting the patient's mobility and is intended to relieve pain. In addition, kinesiotape can have a positive effect on the patient's blood circulation, metabolism and lymphatic system.
Massages normalise muscle tension and improve the condition of muscle and connective tissue. The effect of massage extends from the treated part of the body to the entire organism and also includes the psyche.
Massages promote blood circulation, loosen scars and tissue adhesions and offer mental and physical relaxation.
Whether prescribed as a stand-alone therapy by your doctor or as an accompanying treatment to your physiotherapy, massage has a positive effect on the body and soul.
Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle massage technique that stimulates the activity of the lymph vessels by alternating pressure, traction and relief. In this way, lymph congestion can be relieved and lymph fluids can be removed more quickly.
Lymphatic drainage supports recovery after operations and interventions, as the tissue swells due to the removal of lymphatic fluid and associated complaints are alleviated. The stimulation of the lymphatic system also accelerates the metabolism and thus tissue healing.
Sports physiotherapy deals with the care of athletes during the build-up phase, during training or rehabilitation after injuries or operations.
Sports physiotherapy aims to specifically train and strengthen the strength, coordination and endurance of athletes. Each sport has its own specific requirements.
Our therapists specifically address the individual requirements and prepare the athletes in the best possible way for the respective load.
Fango therapy involves applying a warming mud pack (moor pack) to the patient's skin. The body is then wrapped in foil, linen sheets or woollen blankets for optimal heat retention. The warming pack remains on the skin for 20 minutes while the patient enjoys the peace and warmth. This creates an intensive warming effect that reaches into deeper tissue layers.
The warming effect of the mud pack stimulates and increases the blood circulation of the skin, muscles and connective tissue and the muscles can relax. The warming treatment with fango thus contributes to pain relief and relaxation of body and mind.
Manual therapy according to Cyriax is used for the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system and soft tissues. Cyriax therapy requires close interaction between medical diagnostics and manual therapy by the physiotherapist.
Cyriax therapy mobilises and stabilises joints with existing hypomobility (over-mobility) and thus brings them into the correct body mechanics. This involves massaging across the affected structures with the fingers or thumbs. This relieves the pain at tendon junctions, muscles and bones.
During the course of the treatment, the patient receives instructions from his physiotherapist on how to treat himself. He is shown exercises that he can do at home to combat the hypomobility and achieve relief from the pain.
