Therapeutic Modalities

Manual Therapy

A physiotherapist’s hands are his biggest assets. Our physiotherapists DSC_0647(small)are specially trained in manual techniques to influence tissue healing through:

  • Mobilisations & Tractions
  • Manipulations
  • Myofascial Therapy
  • Deep Transversal Frictions
  • Manual Stretching

Exercise Therapy

Exercise Therapy in a medical setting plays a major role in the treatmentDSC_0792(small) of musculoskeletal disorders. We prescribe individually adapted exercises to guide you through the rehabilitation.

  • Proprioception
  • Stabilization
  • Core Stability
  • Strengthening
  • Flexibility/Stretching
  • Coordination
  • Medically Supervised Reconditioning
  • Respiratory Training


Our brains send and receive electrical impulses through our nervousDSC_0697(small) system to interpret stimuli and respond accordingly. Electrotherapy uses electrical energy for two purposes: (1) to reduce the sensation of pain and (2) stimulate motor neurons to activate specific muscles.

  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): Using a strong but comfortable sensation through nerve stimulation TENS allows us to achieve pain relief.
  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation:
  • Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves which DSC_0713-(web)generates localized deep heat to the underlying tissues increasing blood flow to the area. Better circulation results in faster regeneration of damaged tissue in muscle, tendon and ligament.




Heat & Cryo Therapy

By applying deep heat we can enhance healing of damagedDSC_0994(small) tissue. Cryotherapy uses cold substances (ice, cooling pads,…) to help reduce the inflammatory process.

  • Cold Compression Cuffs
  • Infrared Therapy



(Sports) Taping

Taping techniques are generally used for musculoskeletal afflictions. DSC_1002(small)Taping stabilizes the joint, regulates muscle tone and enhances proprioception.

  • Conventional Taping
  • Kinesiotaping
  • McConnell Taping



Neurological Retraining

Neurological Retraining focuses on regaining function, preventing DSC_0512(small)further complications and increasing independent ADL skills (Activities of Daily Living), quality of life and social opportunities.

  • Gait and transfer retraining (walking, sit to stand, wheelchair to bed, …)
  • Support in the use of Assistive Devices such as orthosis, crouches, braces, …
  • Fall Prevention Training
  • Neuro-cognitive retraining
  • Neural mobilizations
  • Cueing and cognitive strategies (Parkinson’s Disease)
  • Vestibular repositioning maneuvers (BPPV)
  • PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation)
