Björn Aasa ran a physiotherapeutic workshop in Bardejov
16. 6. 2017
At the beginning of June the EuroPainClinics® in Bardejov, once again welcomed a rare guest, the Swedish physiotherapist Bjorn Aasa, MaSci., RPT, who led a two-day practical workshop for Slovak and Czech doctors on the topic of an analysis of the theoretical background of movement dysfunction.
Besides theoretical knowledge, participants had the opportunity to be individually involved in specific situations. During the workshop, 14 patients with different types of movement difficulties at various stages were examined. Björn Aasa demonstrated accurate diagnostic procedures including determining the health indications and recommendations for a specific treatment in the form of specific demonstrations and practicing therapeutic exercises.
The workshop met with some very active interest from all the doctors present, for whom this form of further education brought a number of stimuli for their further practice as well as the positive response of the patients under examination, some of whom stated that the pain had been relieved immediately after the procedure.
At EuroPainClinics®, we take a comprehensive approach to patient treatment and we are pleased that thanks to our cooperation with Swedish specialists we can offer patients another solution in the form of physiotherapy.
