Types of exercise therapy

McKenzie’s Gymnastics

McKenzie’s Mechanical and Diagnosis Therapy (MDT) is mainly used to treat the spine, but it is far from being able only to rehabilitate and strengthen the spine. This method was developed by the world-renowned New Zealand physiotherapist Robin Mackenzie, and the therapy is done in as individual treatments. According to McKenzie’s principle, if certain postures or movements are accompanied by pain, the problem can be eliminated by performing and repeating special movements.

After accurate, comprehensive examinations, the physiotherapist determines the specific movements that can be used to reduce the degree of pain. Since the cause of the problem and the movement that causes the pain are unique for each patient, it is only possible to design a set of exercises that provide a solution after a health assessment examination.

Fortunately, McKenzie therapy can even be done at home after mastering the exercises, but the physiotherapist will continue to check the effectiveness of gymnastics at regular intervals.

Stabilizing exercise therapy

The goal of exercise therapy is the segmental stabilization to strengthen the muscles that run directly along the joints and to improve the position of the joint. It is a useful choice for shoulder, waist and spine pain, as with the neural control of holding of the posture it is possible to achieve stable and painless posture again. However, even in the presence of neck pain, it provides first-rate assistance in relieving symptoms and then in the complete elimination of complaints.

If you do sedentary work and experience joint pain on a regular basis, stabilizing exercise therapy will certainly bring you the weekdays free from unpleasant symptoms. During exercise therapy, you can also master the correct posture during the session, so that even a really long and exhausting 40-hour work week will not bring you pain in the future. With deep muscle gymnastics, you can maintain and regenerate the muscles of your torso and stop the deformities being developed.

Rehabilitation gymnastics

If you have suffered a sports injury or accident, you can reactivate yourself with rehabilitation physiotherapy to regain your old form as soon as possible. Rehabilitation gymnastics is also recommended to be performed before surgery (e.g. before hip replacement implantation), since with proper preparation of the tissues there is a much greater chance of a successful surgery.

Whether you are facing surgery or have already over with the operation, rehabilitation gymnastics will gradually restores the functions of the affected area. With balance exercises and dynamic stabilization, coordination training and additional special exercises, you can not only recover sooner, but you can even greatly reduce your chances of repeated injury.

Why does breathing technique play an important role?

Since the ribs are joined to both the thoracic vertebrae and the sternum, deformations of the spine also affect these areas. Often, each inhalation contributes to the formation and maintenance of the deviation, so the process may be reversed using special breathing exercises. The physiotherapist can help you learn 3D breathing exercises, and with their regular performance it is possible to fight the deformities of the spine.

What complaints can Schroth gymnastics be used for?

  • Scoliosis
  • Incorrect posture
  • Vertebral growth disease (Scheuermann’s disease)
  • Vertebral deformity
  • Mobilization prior to spinal surgery
  • Rehabilitation after spinal surgery
