Manual therapy

What is manual therapy and what is manual therapy for?

Manual therapy is a method in which a physiotherapist focuses in depth on the complaints of a patient and tackles them at the core. For example, do you suffer from joint pain, muscle aches or neck issues? Manual therapy can reduce these issues or even make them disappear. To see for yourself, contact Kinesitherapie Brussels.

Curative solutions for low or high back pain

In our physiotherapy practice in Brussels, we work on your complaints individually. The back rehabilitation program can help your back recovery. You will gain insight into the mechanisms that cause back pain, the functioning of the vertebral column and the underlying pain mechanisms. In addition, you will learn to recognise and adjust your issues in your daily life. The back rehabilitation program is aimed at people who want to prevent back problems and/or actively tackle them.

Temporomandibular Therapy

The solution for your jaw joint pain

The treatment of the jaw joint is a specialisation within manual therapy that requires a targeted approach. It is of great importance that the correct cause of the complaints in and around the ear can be identified. In the case of head and neck pain, the jaw joint plays an important role and needs to be examined every time. If extensive clinical research shows that there is a temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD), then this therapy is recommended.
The most common complaints in TMD are:

Specialised therapy

This specialised physiotherapy of the jaw joint can help to treat the causes. We will work on relaxation of the muscles of the chewing system, improvement of the mouth opening and coordination of mouth movements. Your dentist can prescribe this therapy for you. Contact Kinesitherapie Brussels for:

Vestibular Therapy

An effective treatment for vertigo

In addition to their auditory function, our ears also perform a balancing function via the vestibular organ. One of the most common complaints of the vestibular system is BPPV or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. This condition is characterised by severe short-term episodic vertigo (rotational dizziness) with rapid changes in the position of the head. After a clinical examination using positional tests, the physiotherapist can reach a diagnosis and start an effective treatment.

Vestibular training

BPPV patients will eventually avoid certain head movements in order not to get pain. For example, they will keep their neck as straight as possible or sleep with their head on several pillows. In this way, they only shift the problem: pain-avoiding movements and posture will lead to immobility, neck problems and prolonged persistence of the disorder.
Thanks to vestibular training, we can put an end to these together:
