Steps to the Motion Pyramid® Treatment Concept:
Regardless of the type of complaint, our patients first come to us for a health assessment, where
they participate in a assessment and evaluation developed for Rita Szentiványi’s Motion Pyramid® concept, where
standardised manual and functional orthopaedic tests in accordance with the rules of evidence-based medicine and the latest scientific findings are being conducted,
and according to the symptoms and test results, place their condition at the appropriate level of the Motion Pyramid®, and
we prepare a corresponding therapeutic recommendation
During our health check, the therapeutic treatment is also started as well
Therapy is never aimed at acute pain relief. This may be the first step, but the goal is not the symptomatic treatment, but the treatment or elimination of the causes. Therapy is aimed at recovery. As advancing upwards the levels of Motion Pyramid®, the therapy also changes: after the pain relief we mobilize, then stabilize, and then the general muscle strengthening and endurance improvement may follow. In practice, this means a few sessions of manual therapy, then exercise therapy, then exercise forms more similar to training will follow, finally the functional training comes, which is almost like what you do with a personal trainer, only it is all being done with a qualified medical professional who knows exactly your injury and complaints and how long it can be loaded, within a hygienic medical facility, in a close circle.
With pain, you can not move. After relieving the pain, however, proper joint mobility, the right range of motion, flexibility, adequate flexibility of muscles, nerves and connective tissues can be achieved. Proper strengthening can only be done in full range of motion and in a correct posture.
The joint mobility achieved by manual therapy, the optimal contact of the articular surfaces can be maintained with the stabilizing functions of the muscles. As an effect of therapeutic exercises, deep muscles running around the joints and vertebrae can be strengthened. The next step (also 12 sessions) is completely about the patient’s activity, since this time we can continue joint mobilization and stabilization typically with mild symptoms or completely asymptomatic.
Functional exercises, complex muscle strengthenings, agility exercises and plyometric exercises. At this level, we already expect a quick reaction from the joints and muscles. Here the development of muscle tone is already impressive. Muscle balance is restored, posture improves.
The section is medical fitness, which is completely about strengthening and endurance improvement, but is done in professional medical environments and with devices, under the supervision of a health professional or in the case of athletes, it is a sport-specific training for returning to sport.
