Therapeutic Medicinal Massage (Kinesitherapy)
If you are suffering from a more serious health problem, which is being treated by a doctor, massage can be an extremely beneficial and indispensable treatment method. I have the necessary education and experience and can be of help to you in the treatment and recovery of:
Orthopedic diseases requiring surgery
Degenerative diseases of the joints
Diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system
In the preoperative period:
I will prepare your muscles so that when you start moving again after surgery, they will be properly activated and balanced and this will lead to a faster and more efficient recovery.
In the late postoperative period:
After permission from your treating doctor or physical therapist, massage can be an indispensable complementary therapy to physical therapy.
If you’ve been immobilised due to trauma (fractures, sprains, damaged tendons, and nerves), I will take care of the weakened condition of the muscles, as well as possible contractures (restricted movement of the joints). Massage can also be helpful in the cases of paralysis caused by damage to the central nervous system (strokes, cerebral palsy) and peripheral nerves.
Therapeutic massage is selective and applied in controlled doses, depending on the diagnosis and the individual condition of each patient.
Possible techniques include:
Post-isometric relaxation (PiR)
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
Thalassotherapy can also be applied, but only after consultation with a doctor.
Since the duration of the therapeutic massage cannot always be pre-determined, as it depends on the patient's current condition and their reaction during the massage, if the procedure ends a few minutes earlier, the remaining time will be filled with a massage of another body part of your choice.
If you have the opportunity, it is especially desirable to undertake a therapeutic massage immediately before a visit to your physical therapist. This will lead to better results in their work with you.
PLEASE NOTE: There are a number of medical conditions in which massage is contraindicated! You must consult your doctor before visiting us.
