The smart combination of precaution, avoidance and limitation

Prevention (disease prevention = primary prevention, avoidance of relapse = secondary prevention, or harm limitation and avoidance of secondary disease = tertiary prevention) is the demand with whom we approach our patients, even if they are actually only visiting our doctor’s office for immediate therapy. The avoidance of afflictions, and to be one step ahead of them after an immediate therapy (“see Rehabilitation”) is the real challenge of a modern and intelligent medicine.

So also if we treat curative, the preventative thought is accompanying us.



A complex process for a reintegration to the daily life

“Picking up” the patient where he is at the moment, doing an individual problem analysis by a comprehensive initial contact with osteopathic/naturopathic anamnesis, defining a rehabilitation goal, and finally proposing an operation scheduling to the patient.

Those steps are the basic for the actual therapy. This counts as well for acute or chronical pains, before or after a surgery, or as well for functional disorders in the private, occupational, or daily life.


Sports Medicine

The characteristic of life is “movement”.

If it succeeds to make a pain relief, to remove compensation patterns, to release tensions and to enable mobility, than the time has come to restudy (natural) movement patterns. This “reset” of neurophysiological movement patterns is the basic for an expanded action scope in the daily life and it makes it easier for the body to outplay bad habits on its hard disk, to keep the in the therapy achieved mobility, to balance the metabolic and finally to improve quality of life (point of intersection to prevention!).

This basic principle applies to the patients, to amateur athletes as well as to professional athletes. As it is commonly known, the dose is important. Especially the “dosage”, the individual choice of exercises, and the adjustment of the impact intensity, is our strength (see more particular in the spectrum section).


Pain Therapy

The highest number of patients finds the way in our doctor’s office because of the specialization on pains at themusculoskeletal system.

Thanks to the broad medical specialist education (physical and rehabilitative medicine) and many further education in pain therapeutic procedures it is possible for us to also approach “stiff-necked” (note: comes from “stiff neck”!) problems. Considering especially osteopathic relations as statics, biomechanics, pre-surgeries, scars, primary diseases, accidents, and falls, you encounter causal relations of the complaints, which often stay hidden in the “There-Where-Medicine”(where it hurts, that's where I also search for the cause of the complaint).

The choice, scope, and the frequency of the measures orient themselves by the admission examination and the treatment process. Even if not every body can react as “planed or desired”, always measures are chosen, which are at most low in risk and without any side effects. Despite those basic principles we always have to preserve courage to change the treatment path which was already taken if it is necessary. It is our requirement to take our patients along by giving explanations and including them in decisions.
