Restoring fluidity of movement and stability to tired or damaged structures
Physiotherapy, often referred to as physio, is a way of promoting health and wellbeing through a combination of manual therapy and targeted exercises. It aims to increase a person’s mobility and can be performed on people suffering from a variety of disorders. It is most commonly used in the management of conditions affecting the muscles, joints, blood circulation and lungs.
Physiotherapists use many different techniques including direct mobilisation, massage therapy, exercises and full rehabilitation programs.
The physiotherapy exercise programs are not as strenuous as they sound. Their aim is to promote movement and strength whilst increasing circulation and relieving pain. They usually involve taking part in light forms of activity such as swimming, jogging or exercises that focus on a specific body part.
You will be shown how to perform the exercises on your own and encouraged to pursue the rehabilitation program outside the clinic. Our aim is to help you regain your balance, move better and improve your overall wellbeing.
As part of our services, Franziska Schmidt-Dengler also offers Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD):
MLD is an advanced therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow.
This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes waste products. The first visit will include a consultation during which the therapist will recommend the number and frequency of future sessions.
Where appropriate the therapist will work in conjunction with your medical practitioner http://www.mlduk.org.uk/therapy/
