FAQ – Physiotherapy

HOW CAN I START WITH PHYSIOTHERAPY?

  • First of all, you need one prescription for physical therapy that you can get from your family doctor.

  • Let the prescription get approved by the chief doctor (at your health insurance company) in order to be reimbursed after the therapy has been completed.
    I am a elective therapist , therefore you will not get all your money back (approx. 1/3 unless you have additional insurance)!

  • Make an appointment with me (even before step 1 and 2!): Either by phone or directly online

  • The first treatment takes a little longer (approx. 60 min.), Because we will discuss your complaints and your goals in detail, and I will carry out a detailed examination. Please take your doctor’s prescription, all current findings on your complaints and comfortable clothing / sweatpants with you!

  • All further treatments take approx. 45 minutes.
    We will now carry out the therapy plan that we worked out together in the first unit or adapt it again and again.
    Of course, I carry out ongoing examinations throughout the duration of the therapy to see to what extent treatment techniques need to be adapted so that we can achieve your goals in the best possible way.

HOW MANY UNITS ARE NEEDED?

The number of physiotherapy units required depends on your symptoms and is very different from one individual to the next.
In general, however, one can say that acute issues, such as injuries, usually get better faster, while chronic complaints that have lasted longer than 3 months often require more therapy units.

WHAT CAN YOU, AS A PHYSIOTHERAPIST, DO FOR ME?

Count to my areas of expertise orthopedics, traumatology and sports .
That means that I will help you as a physiotherapist chronic complaints of the musculoskeletal system, the cause of which you may not even know, and acute complaint after injuries to improve and fix.
An important part of the therapy consists of individually tailored to your examination results and goals flexibility, stability and strengthening exercises . It is very important to me that you understand the origin of your complaints / pain and learn exercises for self-help in order to be able to achieve sustainable results.
