During each visit, I provide a thorough discussion about causes, course (prevention?) and treatment options. This is in conjunction with a thorough physical examination. Only when a patient correctly understands their situation can they make a reasonable decision about their health.

Spine Treatment

Consulting

A “clean” diagnosis is important for successful therapy. In order to maintain this, a detailed medical examination, a thorough physical examination and purposeful diagnostics are required. From this, a concept for treatment is defined together.

Neural Therapy / Segment Therapy

A method where local anesthetics and anti-inflammatory substances are injected into a painful region within the vicinity of nerves or muscle hardenings.

Spine-Tight Infiltrations

Inflammations in the small vertebral joints, the area of the nerve exhalation holes and inflammations in the ligaments and tendons on the vertebral column can be influenced until healed.

CT-Guided Spinal Injections

A CT (Computer Tomography) -controlled injection of an inflammatory inhibitor (usually cortisone-containing solution) is given in the immediate vicinity of a herniated disc, an otherwise compressed nerve root or joint inflammation with close monitoring. Very precise and with little risk. It is extremely successful with an improvement rate of > 80%.

Chirotherapy

Elimination of minor dislocations of joint partners by using special handgrips. These so-called subluxations (incomplete dislocation of a joint) frequently occur in the spine and the Sacroiliac joints (Iliac Crest joint).

Spinal Traction Therapy

While on a special treatment bed, gentle longitudinal pulls and the simultaneous application of heat provide relief from painful muscle tensions and joint blockages in the cervical and lumbar spine. An ancient and proven principle within manual medicine.

Infusion Therapy

A uniform effect can be achieved rapidly through a combination of substances intravenously. the Infusion therapy is helpful for patients with gastrointestinal complaints, therapies that rely on blood thinners as well as other basic diseases which do not allow for the oral intake of tablets.

Physical Therapy

The correct execution of passive and active physiotherapeutic treatments is an essential part of successful spinal column treatment. This approach is a medium to long-term stabilization of the desired situation. An individually compiled program is co-ordinated for each patient and adjusted as necessary.

Kinesio-Taping

The principle is based on a relaxing or stabilizing effect on the muscles or joints, depending on the technique and the material used. The effect in the muscles or joints is mediated via the skin and the subcutaneous tissue. Kinesio-Taping has been widely used in recent years, but has been used in orthopedics since the 1970s. It was developed by the Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kaser.

Acupuncture

Body-specific pain-inhibiting systems are activated by needles in defined skin regions. The origin of this practice dates back to 200 years before Christ.
