Please let me point out that our practice has staff properly trained to offer you the method of Professional Applied Kinesiology (PAK). PAK is a method applied in alternative medicine. It constitutes a holistic therapeutic system which accounts for the interrelationship between the musculoskeletal system, metabolism and mental state. It is therefore conceptually suited to enable treatment based on underlying causes. Specific muscle testing forms the core of the method. Using these tests, the therapist evaluates the functionality of a muscle as well as its reaction to stimuli. These tests enable therapists to systematically look for the causes for disorders in order to initiate individual therapy. The goal of PAK is to rectify imbalances by activating natural self-healing powers through appropriate therapeutic procedures.
Healing through “scar tissue balancing”. The Injury-Recall method is part of Applied Kinesiology. It constitutes a complex means of treatment which can effectively resolve various aspects of older injury patterns and traumata. It is based on the observation that a large number of patients do not regain their full capacities after an injury, surgical intervention or illness. Obviously, our body often forms a memory of “experiences” like these. Injuries can permanently reside in the body’s memory and lead to disorders which ostensibly appear to not be related to the injured region at all. Neurologically, the injury is still present in these patients, although in the background. This neurologic misinformation is triggered by flight reflexes that keep being triggered by the original region of the injury. Therefore, the goal of this method of treatment is to detect the old and misdirecting memorisations and to overwrite or delete them from the nervous system.
The approach of physical therapy is one of healing through exercise. As physical exercise influences all areas of the organism, even complete organs and the nervous and immune system, its application extends to nearly any medical discipline – and to numerous patterns of disorders. At our practice, we are specialising in the following areas: manual therapy, Dorn-Breuss therapy for treating back, spinal and joint problems, PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) for neurology and orthopedics, temporomandibular joint treatment (CMD), splint therapy in cooperation with dentists, trigger-point therapy of localised muscle hardenings, fascia method and scoliosis treatment using the Schroth method.
This specialised form of therapy is used to treat hypomobilities, hypermobilities and pain disorders of any joint in the body. It consists of various manual manipulations and mobilization techniques which intend to reduce pain and movement disorders. It aims at a healthy interplay of joints, muscles and nerves.
Massage is applied for muscular strain, pain and imbalances. At our practice, we offer the following types of massage: classical massage, connective tissue massage, sports massage, manual lymphatic drainage, wellness massage, relaxing massages. Of course, you are also welcome anytime without any discomforts – massage is a perfect means of increasing your overall well-being.
PNF is short for “Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation”. This therapy intends to increase awareness of movement and to improve the interplay of movement receptors, nerves and muscles. All joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and also our skin are equipped with motion detectors – called receptors. Through these receptors, we perceive how our body moves or in what position it currently is. With PNF therapy, the receptors in joints, muscles and tendons are selectively stimulated and activated. This stimulation intends to increase motion perception and improve motion patterns. PNF can thereby help persons with disorders of the locomotor system and supporting apparatus to increase their steadiness and autonomy and to reduce or even eliminate pain. PNF therapy must only be applied by specially trained physiotherapists. We are approved PNF therapists.
Manual lymphatic drainage is a special, very gentle massage technique employed for decongestion of lymphoedema (swellings). The congested lymphatic fluid results in tensions which can also cause pain. During manual lymphatic drainage, the lymph flow is stimulated by gentle, rhythmic, circular and pumping massage movements by the hands. By increasing lymphatic circulation, the tissue is decongested and the swelling subsides. The tissue is relieved and pain can be alleviated. To prevent the build-up of new oedema, the treatment is in most cases followed by tissue compression using bandages or compression stockings. Specific decongesting gymnastics as well as adequate general physical exercise stimulate lymph flow, improve the treatment result and counter recurrence of oedema.
In general, Fango wraps can be applied with complaints accompanied by tenseness, strain, and pain of the locomotor system. They make use of the healing and detoxifying effects of mineral mud. There are two different types of Fango wraps: In Heat Therapy, warm Fango wraps are employed for muscle and joint pain. For this, the healing clay is mixed to the consistency of a slurry and first heated to about 70 to 80 °C. After cooling to about 50 °C, the Fango slurry is applied to the body part to be treated and wrapped with towels and film. This wrap allows heat to spread through the skin into deeper layers of tissue and from there across all of the body. The vessels extend, you start to sweat and blood perfusion is increased; metabolism is increased. This in turn improves nutrient supply and supports detoxification. For Cold Therapy, Fango wraps e.g. are employed in case of minor sports injuries like sprains and bruises.
Disorders of the mandibular joint are the result of malfunctions and misalignments between skull and jaw. Their causes are numerous and are often underestimated. For instance, earaches and headaches may have teeth grinding as their actual underlying cause. Malpositions of jaw or teeth are in many cases also the actual culprits for neck, back and/or spine problems. In addition, sciatic pain and blocks of the thoracic vertebrae may be the effects of a dysfunctional mandibular joint. Emotional and mental issues may also play a role. Common phrases like “setting one’s jaw” or “gritting one’s teeth” express this. In general, physiotherapeutic temporo-mandibular treatment aims to regulate muscle tone (tenseness and hardening) in the jaw muscles and, depending on manifestation, also in the shoulder and neck muscles and to eliminate mandibular malfunction. To do so may require the cooperation of several doctors from very different disciplines. Ultimately, therapy is governed by causes.
We are trained CRAFTA® therapists, i.e., we have received specialized training for the treatment of head and neck problems.
Taping, also called physio-taping or kinesio-taping, can help patients to move in a way that supports healing in case of back and muscle pain or of joint and fascia problems. Kenesio-tapes are elastic tapes which are attached to the body using adhesives in places where they positively influence muscle function, support joint function and activate lymphatic circulation. Additionally, their purpose is to stimulate pain receptors so that pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments and fasciae (connective tissue fibers) is relieved by taping. Kinesio-tapes do not contain any active ingredients (pharmaceuticals). They therefore neither interfere with any homeopathic treatment nor with medication. The effect of kinesio-taping has not been supported by scientific evidence yet, but current studies and experience with their positive effects gained so far – especially by top athletes – for instance presume the following effects: positive adjustment of muscle activity, support of joint function, relief of pain by influencing pain receptors, lessening of the strain on tissue after injury and damage, improvement of lymphatic drainage, plus several others.
We work in a team of 4 physiotherapists. Each of us specialises in specific fields of treatments and disorders.
Our joint passion is Professional Applied Kinesiology and the Injury Recall Method contained in it. We are very proud to currently be the only practice in Düsseldorf able to offer you this ingenious method of treatment.
Director, Physiotherapist, Specialized CAM Practitioner for Physiotherapy
Aniko von Danwitz
Patients of our private practice benefit from the services of a Specialized CAM Practitioner for Physiotherapy.
Usually, the first stop for patients is at a doctor’s practice who will then write a prescription for physiotherapy. As I, Kathrin Czarsbon, owner of the practice Physiotherapie Fiedlis am also a qualified Specialized CAM Practitioner for Physiotherapy (Sektoraler Heilpraktiker), your physiotherapist is also the person diagnosing a disorder.
Therefore diagnosis, prescription and therapy will take place under one roof, saving you the way to a doctor and enabling you to visit our practice for physiotherapy with acute discomforts. If the findings made at our place are unclear, you will of course be referred to a specialised doctor in order to further examine the cause of your symptoms.
What are your benefits as a patient?
Without a doctor’s prescription, the costs will unfortunately not be borne by statutory health insurance providers. Private patients or patients with private supplementary insurance will however have the possibility of being reimbursed for treatment costs.
