Physical therapy aims at restoring physical function, thereby mainly concentrating on three cornerstones:
First, we use specific, goal-oriented physical activity, for example strength training for active joint stabilization.
Second, we use manual therapy techniques, for example for the specific restoration of jont range of motion.
Third, we build on informing our patients specifically about their problems, thereby empowering them to understand their condition and adapt their lives to it.
In order to cater exactly to your needs and enable us to help you as specifically as possible, a very precise identification of the problem is absolutely neccessary. Therefore, your first session at FUNKTION Physiotherapie will include a very thorough physical examination by the physical therapist. Please bring along all kinds of information (X-Rays, MRIs, surgery protocols,...) that you have.
In Austria, we as physical therapists need a doctor's prescription to be authorized to work with you. if your physician deems physical therapy as helpful for you, please ask him for a prescription that says "10 x 45 Minuten Physiotherapie". This does not mean that you have to have 10 sessions. Please check with your health insurance provider for reimbursement of costs. One session at FUNKTION Physiotherapy is 70€.
