Individual treatment and advice.
Our therapy centre
Our exercise therapy involves exercise that has been prescribed by a doctor and planned by a physiotherapist, who is also responsible for carrying out the therapy at regular intervals. Exercise therapy primarily serves to improve the mobility of the musculoskeletal system and to strengthen or extend muscles that have been damaged due to injury or disease.
The therapy offers include:
It is often easier to exercise in water than on land, because the buoyancy of the water makes it easier to perform certain movements and reduces the strain on your joints. Our therapists use the water’s physical properties (buoyancy, resistance, warmth) to design a suitable exercise programme for each patient. Water therapy is conducted at the Bogn Engiadina bathhouse.
Trigger point therapy
Every part of the body is capable of feeling pain. For a long time, the medical profession agreed that only worn out joints and pinched nerves could cause pain in the musculoskeletal system. However, in recent years it has become clear that many pains are actually caused by muscles. Such complaints can be the result from incorrect or excessive muscular strain through activities performed at work, in our free time or whilst playing sport. Although many muscle pains are symptoms associated with joint arthrosis, most patients with muscular pain only have problems with their muscles.
Dry needling effectively complements manual trigger point therapy. It involves the precise insertion of thin needles without medication (hence the name ‘dry’) into the trigger points that are responsible for the acute pain. This relieves muscle cramps, improves the blood circulation around the site and reduces the local inflammatory response. Dry needling is used in sports physiotherapy, orthopaedic rehabilitation and to treat pain syndromes.
Electrotherapy involves the use of various types of electric current. Different currents (frequency, amplitude, pulse width) can be used to reduce pain, improve circulation, relax or strengthen the muscles, or improve the reabsorption of oedema fluid.
Shockwave therapy (extracorporeal focused shock wave therapy)*
Targeted shockwave therapy is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment for many persistent musculoskeletal complaints.
