Physiotherapy

Manual Therapy

Mobilization of blockages


Manual medicine or manual therapy deals with treatment and prevention of reversible function disorders associated with posture and movement (locomotor) systems. Diagnostic  and therapeutic techniques are used on the spine and extremity joints to locate and remedy these disorders.

Lymph Drainage

Decongestion and activation of the lymphatic system


Alongside the circulatory system, the lymphatic system is the most important transport system in the body. Manual lymph drainage is a massage technique that eliminates lymph blockages in tissue. The treatment serves as a decongestion therapy and supports flow to and from cells, promotes healing of wounds and improves regeneration e.g. after injuries.

 

 

Neurological Therapy

Rehabilitation of the nerve tracts


If disorders of the  central or peripheral nervous system, sickness or accident, limit mobility we are able to offer special physiotherapy methods (e.g. the Bobath Concept) allowing  more independence in your daily routine.

 

Special training in walking (gait training) as well as therapeutic methods in connection with electric stimulation therapy are part of the supporting methods.

 

Often with autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis it is not the control center that is affected but the connections. Through regular repetition the brain builds new nerve connections with which motion sequences can be practiced again. This mechanism functions not only with MS and strokes but also with neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.

Shock Wave Therapy

Deep mobilization of tissue


In modern pain therapy, the energy of shock waves is transmitted to the treatment area in the human body. The healing process in the body is then accelerated, the metabolism is stimulated, circulation is increased and consequently the damaged tissue regenerates better. By using shock wave therapy, unhealthy changes to tendons, ligaments, internal capsule muscles (capsula interna) and bones are targeted in therapy.

 

Shock wave therapy is available at our practices in Stans and Rotkreuz.

Trigger Point Therapy

Relief of tension


Muscle hardenings are pressure-sensitive and frequently cause radiating pain. By using trigger point therapy, these muscle hardenings in the skeletal muscles can be targeted in treatment. Here, we speak about so-called myofascial trigger points.

Dry Needling

Relief of tension


Dry Needling is the treatment of myofascial trigger points with acupuncture needles. It is an effective supplement to manual therapy. Cramps are released, local blood circulation is improved and the punctual inflammatory reaction is reduced.

 

 

Craniosacral Therapie

Holistic physical therapy


Craniosacral therapy (cranium-sacrum therapy) is a holistic physical therapy which uses rhythmic pulsations to set the brain and cerebrospinal fluid in motion. This rhythm transmits through the whole body and influences the development and functionality of the entire human being. This treatment can, amongst others, be used for traumas, disorders of the vegetative and central nervous systems, pain conditions and stress-related symptoms.

Physiotherapy for children

children, infants and toddlers


Children’s physiotherapy is very specialised for children, infants and toddlers. We deal with the development phases and can support your child through play to achieve specific skills. It is our concern to give your child the time he / she needs and to create the right framework.

We treat your child for the following clinical procedures:

  • Wryneck (torticollis)
  • Positional asymmetry of the head (plagiocephalus)
  • Development Delays
  • Butt slider (Shuffler)
  • Growth disorders of the spinal column (Scheuermann’s disease and scoliosis)
  • Poor posture (hunchback)
  • Flat feet and instability of the ankle
  • Orthopedic post-treatment of fractures
