Which therapy is possible at home?
The most common therapy forms performed at home are hands-on techniques such as Manual Therapy, Soft Tissue Release, Lymphatic Drainage and Exercise Therapy. Other forms of therapy can be offered by using portable technical devices such as Shockwave, Ultrasound, Electro Muscular Stimulation and Fango Therapy. Our therapists are equipped with a portable treatment table to offer the best possible services at home.
Therapeutic exercises are prescribed and supervised movements and can be carried out either with or without external load. Exercise therapy aims to relieve pain and improve function, by controlling inflammation, restoring range of motion, and improving muscle strength. The goal of exercise therapy is to return to daily activities and resume recreational sports. In addition, exercise therapy can be used for preventive purposes to avoid injuries in the future.
Manual therapy is implemented to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability. It uses passive and active assisted joint mobilisation techniques and muscular release techniques to improve the range of motion, thus allowing for natural movement of the joints.
Soft tissue release, also called massage, affects the skin, connective tissue and muscles through stretching, tension and pressure stimuli. The effect of the massage extends from the treated area to the entire body. The benefits of soft tissue release are increased blood circulation, decreased muscle tone, improved cell metabolism and reduced pain.
Manual lymphatic drainage is used to reduce swelling caused by lymphatic dysfunction through illness, injury or surgery. It is a type of massage that uses light pressure and circular, rhythmical movements to stimulate the lymphatic system underneath the skin. This form of massage should help to relieve the congested swollen tissue and thereby decrease the pain.
