Conservative orthopaedics, osteopathy, acupuncture, foot and ankle surgery
" Before getting lost in single diagnoses, I take a step back with the patient and consider them as a whole.
The possibilities of medical and endoprosthetic patient care today are vast. Yet whilst studying medicine and during my 3 and 5 year training as a physiotherapist and osteopath I always focused on not only viewing the human as a sum of their joints. The smooth interaction between all function chains in the body and how they make each person different is quite special.
We would like to use our treatment approaches to help our patients be pain-free again and enjoy moving around. During the consultations for my osteopathic treatments I develop a therapy goal with the patient to reflect the physical condition and the patient's needs. Not everybody with gonarthrosis needs an artificial knee joint if conservative treatment will suffice for the necessary short distances. What may be the best treatment for one person may not provide another with satisfactory results. In addition, I try to also account for the patient's fears and uncertainties and in my consulting position throw light on all options.
