Mobilization

Mobilization / Remedial Therapy / Sporting injuries

‘Manual Medicine’ is the use of physical therapeutic techniques applied to reversible functional disorders of the postural and locomotor systems. It uses all diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for the spinal column and the joints of the extremities to locate and treat those disorders.

These include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Applied Kinesiology
  • Biomesotherapy
  • Biopuncture
  • Chiropractic
  • Clinical Massage
  • Dorn Therapy
  • Electro-Magnetic Therapy
  • Heat-Cold Therapy
  • Joint Mobilization
  • Manipulation
  • Mesotherapy
  • Myotherapy
  • Shiatsu
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Trigger Point Therapy
  • Tui-na
  • Ultra Sound
  • Dark Field Microscopy
  • Hemaview┬«
  • Live Blood Analysis
  • Vitality Assessments
  • Fitness Assessments
  • Body Composition Tests
Many of the above procedures are most suitable in the immediate treatment of an injury sustained through physical activity either on the domestic, work, sport or recreational scene.

Treatment is usually for acute cases and is relevant for the term of the injury until symptoms are significantly relieved or, ideally, disappear.

Chronic conditions respond very well to treatment. Experience has demonstrated that the patient responds best when more than one treatment ‘technique’ is used in the overall treatment regime.

Locum Practitioners are available that share the MEDICUS philosophy and concept to quality healthcare.

Dorn Technique

Dorn Therapy is a gentle spinal and joint treatment. This technique originated from Germany where in the main, it is taught only to and practiced by registered (qualified) health practitioners.

Dorn Therapy technique can successfully treat problems related to wrongly seated vertebra and sub-located joints.

The gentle spinal Dorn Therapy is not a manipulation of the spine or the joints, but rather a therapy that lets joints and the spinal column slip back to their right and ‘natural position’ through self-determined movements of the patient. The reseating of the affected joint can bring very rapid relief to affected muscle, tendon, ligament, neural and/or circulatory tissue.
