As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, EuroPainClinics workplaces provide a special functional stabilization exercise called “Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Stereotype Disorders”, which deals with the treatment of pain based on errors in movement stereotypes or patterns that determine our movement.
The therapy is performed by a renowned Swedish specialist in the treatment of movement disorders and musculoskeletal medicine Björn Aasa, MaSci., RPT.
What is the principle of therapy?
The therapy “Diagnosis and treatment of disorders of movement stereotypes” is based on a world-respected scientific and clinically proven method of analysis of the so-called Movement System Impairment (MSI), in which special diagnostics focuses on movement that causes pain, rather than on a particular pathological-anatomical problem.
Each therapy is unique, tailored to the patient’s unique profile.
How the therapy takes place
- The therapy is always preceded by an examination at the EuroPainClinics workplace based on the recommendation of a specialist for minimally invasive and endoscopic treatment of the back
- Therapy is started by a specialist by taking anamnesis and evaluating the results of imaging methods (MRI)
- Therapy includes a series of manual diagnostic examinations, based on which the specialist determines exercises for specific health problems.
- After completing the therapy, the patient will receive a USB key with recorded exercises for home exercise according to the specialist’s recommendation. In order to achieve the highest possible effect of therapy, we recommend devoting your time to regular exercise and consistent performance of exercises according to specialist-recommended repetitions.
What is the goal of therapy
- Find and examine the connection between the current physical disability and the patient’s daily life.
- Identify the causes and consequences of one’s own movement disorder, identify and correct incorrect movement patterns and functional disorders, and skeletal and muscular imbalances.
- Determine the optimal treatment for pain relief
- Educate the patient how to manage and direct their dysfunction at any time during autotherapy so that the pain is under control and the functionality of the movement is restored to a state that is as close as possible to “normal”
