The AlterG® anti-gravity treadmill can reduce body weight by up to 80 percent. This not only ensures that therapy is safe, but also helps patients to regain a natural gait. It is ideal for patients with lower-limb pain, arthritis or weight problems, for those trying to build up muscle after an operation or suffering from neurological problems.
BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION TRAINING (BFRT)
If there is a valid indication and the person is healthy, BFRT can be used as a supplementary measure to sports physiotherapy. The blood flow from the muscle is restricted slightly during training, and even a small amount of resistance can help to ensure highly effective muscle training. This method is particularly suitable for the rehabilitation of injuries to the arms or legs, when strength is still reduced.
Dry needling is an effective supplement to manual trigger point therapy. A thin hypodermic needle without any medication is inserted with great precision into the trigger point that is causing the patient’s symptoms. This relieves muscle tension, improves circulation to the problem areas and reduces inflammation. Dry needling is used in the treatment of pain syndromes, sports physiotherapy and orthopaedic rehabilitation.
PROGRESSIVE RELAXATION THERAPY ACCORDING TO JACOBSON
This treatment involves the targeted tensing and relaxing of specific muscle groups, resulting in soothing physical and mental relaxation. The therapy helps to improve body perception, reduce muscle tone in the event of stress and relieve sleep disorders and headaches.
This treatment uses an intelligent high-frequency current that facilitates highly effective metabolic therapy. In addition, Human Tecar® therapy also accelerates the healing process in many injuries via the biostimulation of the cell metabolism. This form of therapy supplements manual treatment by the physiotherapist and makes them much more effective. The technology is used both in high-performance sport and in general rehabilitation.
ISOKINETISCHES TRAINING (CON-TREX)
Training on a Con-Trex® machine helps to strengthen the knee flexor and knee extensor muscles. The advantage of this therapy over conventional strength training lies in the constant muscular resistance regardless of the angle. Strength values are recorded, and muscle imbalances are identified and reviewed over time. Targeted training following an anterior cruciate ligament replacement or in the event of tendon disorders are two examples of cases in which Con-Trex® training can be used.
In manual therapy, the focus is on maintaining or restoring essential bodily functions. Manual therapy helps to improve mobility in the joints, connective tissues and skeletal muscles.
MEDICAL TRAINING THERAPY (MTT)
This active form of therapy combines classic physiotherapy with therapy based on the latest findings in the area of sports science. Improvements in a patient’s physical condition also lead to improvements in their metabolism, circulation, nervous system and breathing.
NEUROTHERAPY ACCORDING TO THE BOBATH CONCEPT
The Bobath concept is the world’s most commonly applied holistic concept for treating patients with motor, mental, linguistic or socio-emotional disorders caused by damage to the central nervous system (CNS) due to stroke, multiple sclerosis or other factors.
PNF THERAPY “PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION”
PNF is a functional physiotherapy treatment in which sequences of movement are coordinated, and their effectiveness is improved. This treatment stimulates the functional unit of nerves and muscles following a stroke or for patients with multiple sclerosis or similar disorders.
The focus of sports physiotherapy is on the treatment and prevention of injuries to the locomotor system and on rehabilitation following injuries. Patients are supported throughout their rehabilitation and their return to competitive or recreational sport.
STMEDICAL® RESPIRATORY THERAPY
Deepening and improving our breathing has a lasting effect on physical and mental disorders, and can even eliminate them altogether. This therapy is offered to patients with disorders or dysfunctions of the lungs and airways.
With Aqua Pilates, posture is stabilised by activating the core (the abdominal, pelvic floor and lower back muscles). The focus is on increasing muscle endurance and muscle build-up through powerful movements in the water combined with the holistic training approach developed by J. H. Pilates.
RAGAZER RING METHOD
The ring method is a special water therapy with resistance exercises in warm thermal water that was developed at the Medical Health Center Bad Ragaz. The therapy helps improve mobility in patients with chronic joint problems and aids rehabilitation. It is especially suitable for strengthening muscles, improving mobilisation, improving the coordination of the locomotor system and relieving pain.
Floating in water is a gentle and calming deep relaxation therapy, in which the patient is literally in their therapist’s hands in the thermal water. Blockages and tension are released through gentle stretching, rotation and movement of the joints.
CLASSIC WATER THERAPY
In this therapy, shortened muscles are stretched, joint mobility is improved and weakened muscles are strengthened: movement in water is particularly suitable for post-operational rehabilitation and cardiovascular training.
