Your first appointment with us

In order to offer you the best possible care, we invite every new patient to a 30-minute welcome appointment before the first treatment. Within these half an hour you will be welcomed by our management, our rooms and treatment options will be presented to you and an initial anamnesis interview will be held. This gives you and our therapists more time for the treatment.

Please send us the sheet before your first appointment by email oliver@ihr-nextlevel.de or bring it with you, printed out and filled out.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy is understood to mean the restoration of disturbed muscle, bone and joint functions such as those that can occur after contusions, broken bones (fractures), vertebral blockages and immobilization (e.g. by splint or plaster of paris). The examination and therapy (treatment) is carried out with the hands (lat. Manus).

physiotherapy

In physiotherapy, the

– Ability to move and function (e.g. after fractures, injuries, accidents, operations)
– Coordination (e.g. maintaining and restoring balance)
– Strength and endurance
– cardiovascular function

of the human body can be restored, improved or preserved. It encompasses a multitude of individual therapeutic measures, which additionally reduce or even eliminate pain

Sports physiotherapy

Sports physiotherapy is geared towards active athletes. It is used for the special, faster deployment of the athlete after injuries.

She looks after the athlete during the competition or build-up phase. Special tape dressings are often used here.

Either sports tapes, which are used for short-term use, e.g. for the length of a soccer game, to stabilize a joint and thereby eliminate the pain, or for longer use between competitions using so-called kinesio or dolotapes.

Lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is used for decongestion therapy and for edema (swelling caused by fluid caused by water or blood) to reduce or eliminate.

Edema can form, for example, after operations, trauma (injuries), bacteria. It is a light circular tissue massage and is completely painless.

The faster reduction in swelling results in a much faster convalescence.

Foot reflexology therapy

The foot reflex zone therapy is a healing method in which the stimulation of nerve endpoints on the foot has an effect of relaxation, pain relief and disease healing on the whole organism.

 

The impulses of a targeted pressure point massage stimulate the body’s self-healing powers, strengthen the circulation, normalize glands and organ functions, and reduce tension, blockages and stress. Balance the energy processes in the organism and help to eliminate harmful substances that have accumulated in a person’s body. The therapist works without switching on any apparatus or other devices, but with a trained hand in the reflex zones.

Trigger point therapy

The goal of trigger point therapy is to eliminate the pain of so-called myofascial trigger points. These are locally limited Muscle ratio guards in the Skeletal muscles that are locally sensitive to pressure and from which transmitted pains can go out. Around 80 to 90% of pain syndromes are said to be due to such hardening of the muscles.

PNF

The aim of PNF physiotherapy is to promote neuromuscular interaction, i.e. the interaction between nerves and muscles, through increased stimulation of the sensors, and thus to facilitate physiological movement patterns (facilitation) that are stored in the central nervous system.

Taping

Kinesiology tape (or physio tape) is a elastic textiles , colorful tape, which is in the Alternative medicine and is used in competitive sports. Using special techniques (“taping”) it is applied to the skin in order to achieve health-promoting effects.

Physical therapy

In addition to classic physiotherapy on prescription, we offer a large selection of other state-of-the-art and effective services:

Electrotherapy

Here, stimuli are set through the use of electrical currents. Due to the high number of types of current and frequency, work can be done to relieve pain, stimulate blood circulation, relax or build up muscles.

The muscle’s ability to learn, for example after paralysis, can also be trained in this way.

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy is one area of Physical therapy or the Electrotherapy and describes a medical Method for pain relief and support of self-healing processes by means of Ultrasonic . The frequency range of ultrasound therapy is between 0.8 and 3 MHz.[1]

A treatment is used Transducer evenly guided over the diseased area covered with contact gel, which is supposed to generate warmth and tissue movement inside the body. A distinction must be made between treatment with continuous sound and treatment with impulse sound.

Cryosauna

Extreme cold (up to -190 degrees for 1-3 minutes) treats diseases of the joints, nervous and immune systems. Therefore, it is not a sauna in the traditional sense that it gets hot. Rather, a cryosauna is an ice sauna.
Repeated uses of cryotherapy can have beneficial effects on conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, and many more. The freezing cold leads to a leveling of hormones, nerves, improved blood circulation, metabolic and circulatory stimulation and oxygenation. The areas of application of the cryosauna are diverse and range from medicine to sports to the beauty sector. A combination of heat, cold and current impulses helps to specifically reduce fat from stubborn cushions: Problem areas such as thighs, buttocks, hips, abdomen, upper arms and double chin are treated very specifically and extremely effectively through apoptosis (a gentle way of dissolving fat cells).
The fat cell layer is reduced, the tissue is tightened and the complexion improves.

Heat therapy

With the help of different heat carriers (hot roll, moor, heat cushions) one would like to use the healing effect of heat therapeutically. The methods of heat therapy are very important in physiotherapy.

IHHT - mitochondrial therapy through altitude training

Our body consists of around 80 trillion cells and their “power plants”, the mitochondria. They are the energy suppliers for every biochemical metabolic process in our body.
Oxidative stress without regeneration, short sleep times, overstimulation, constant stress, smoking etc. lead to irreparable damage to the cells, which add up. Healthy mitochondria protect themselves against the therapeutically increased oxygen supply. Damaged mitochondria cannot do this and die. IHHT oxygen therapy deliberately causes the damaged cells to die. The resulting lack of energy gives the impulse for the rapid multiplication of new and healthy mitochondria. the metabolism will thus optimized and chronic diseases are supported in the direction of health and people can do more again Life energy feel.

IndigoSun

The IndigoSun light system is used for the following indications for gentle and effective treatment:

  • Eczema
  • acne
  • psoriasis
  • Sun allergy
  • Scleroderma

The treatment also shows positive effects
Depression and can relieve pain in rheumatism and fibromyalgia. We also offer numerous advantages over conventional tanning devices:

 

  • Instant and deep tan
  • no risk of sunburn
  • no sweating
  • Deep relaxation
  • no drying out / wrinkling of the skin
  • Skin regeneration
  • Serotonin formation (happiness hormone)
papimi

The smallest unit, for an independent and healthy life, is the cell. In a healthy environment, the healthy cell can absorb nutrients and convert them into energy. If the cell is damaged or weakened, it cannot work. So arise Inflammation , chronic pain and Malfunctions up to dangerous changes – the causes of many long-lasting complaints and illnesses.

This is exactly where papimi comes in: weakened cells are strengthened and some dangerous cells are even broken down . Through a treatment with the ion induction device papimi, short magnetic impulses are fed to the body via a treatment applicator, which at least Penetrate 20 cm deep into the body. The metabolism of the cell is normalized again in a very short time. The cell regeneration thus enables the natural supply and discharge of vital substances and diseased cells can be rebuilt.

Super Inducitve System - SIS

The technology is based on the effect of a focused induction field, which has a positive influence on human tissue. The therapeutic effects include pain relief, faster fracture healing, myorelaxation and stimulation, and joint mobilization.

Vacumed

VACUMED® therapy is used in a variety of ways and helps patients and athletes all over the world. The VACUMED® device makes a decisive contribution to positively influencing painful vascular constrictions. By improving the oxygen supply to the undersupplied tissue, pain relief or freedom from pain occurs quickly. Chronic wounds heal. Completely contact-free and painless for the patient. It has been proven that VACUMED® therapy has a positive effect on heart rate and diastolic blood pressure. VACUMED® treatments achieve impressive results and improvements after injuries, lymphatic drainage, vascular diseases and athletes.
General rehabilitation for vascular diseases is required through massive blood circulation and stimulation of the metabolism.

VACUMED® helps with:
• post-thrombotic syndrome
• Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
• Plegia
• Rehabilitation after endoprosthetics
• post-operative / post-traumatic edema

Shock wave therapy
For many years, shock waves have been used in orthopedics as a method to avoid surgery, especially in the case of tendon calcifications, tendon insertion complaints and non-healing bone fractures (pseudarthroses). There are no serious side effects even when using higher amounts of energy. In the last 10 years, new so-called radial shock wave therapy devices have been developed. The radial shock wave is generated by a compressed air-accelerated projectile in a handpiece and then introduced into the body via an applicator. Due to the radial propagation of the shock waves, a larger target volume can be treated than with focused shock wave therapy. However, the depth of penetration is limited in radial shock wave therapy, which is why superficial complaints in the area of the musculoskeletal system are particularly suitable for treatment with radial shock waves.

According to the available scientific studies, the following indications for the use of radial shock wave therapy emerge:

Tennis and golf elbow (epicondylopathia radialis / ulnaris)
Chronic shoulder tendon complaints with and without calcifications (impingement syndrome / tendinosis calcarea)
Heel spur (plantar fasciitis)
Patellar tip syndrome
Tibial Edge Syndrome
Chronic Achilles tendon complaints (achillodynia)
Painful tendinitis on the hip crest (trochanteric bursitis)
Chronic pain in the back, shoulder and neck area (myofascial pain syndromes)

Radial shock wave therapy is a very gentle treatment process due to the lower use of energy and the extensive spread of shock waves. Local anesthesia of the treatment area is not required with radial ESWT, nor is it necessary to locate the focus of the disease by means of X-rays.

There are only a few contraindications that, based on current knowledge, limit the use of radial shock waves:

Patients with coagulation disorders / Marcumarpatients
Tumor patients
Growing joint area in adolescents
pregnancy
Pacemaker
With the radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy, good to very good long-term treatment results can be achieved in approx. 70 to 90% of the cases.

KGG – Medical Training

Our sophisticated concept begins exactly where passive physiotherapy ends. With our systematic and measurable approach, the 1000 square meter therapy area, the highly trained therapists and trainers and the most advanced therapy and training equipment, we make the difference noticeable. Whenever you want to get fit again after an injury, pain or an operation.

Anti gravity treadmill% 22 Age G% 22

With the age G anti-gravity treadmill, we reduce the stress on your back, hips and legs in 1 percent steps to 20 percent of your body weight. This enables us to apply the principle of “loading as much as possible” very precisely.

Your advantage: The training is completely painless. By measuring the increases, we can accurately evaluate your progress.

The relief allows you to start therapy right after an operation or injury. This demonstrably increases the success of the application and helps you get fit again more quickly.

airwalk (anti-gravity)
The airwalk is a body weight relief device for the following areas of application:
Weight relief and fall protection during therapy with the treadmill, weight-relieved and / or secured balance training, weight-relieved and / or secured walking exercises as well as speed training in fitness and competitive sports.
Spinal center

A special training circle with new, high-quality Milon equipment, together with the expert support of our highly qualified therapists, forms our spine center. The training on the equipment is supplemented with special and individual exercises.

SRT Zeptoring

SRT Zeptoring or Stochastic Resonance Therapy – that sounds highly scientific and that is exactly what it is. Behind the cryptic term hides a modern preventive and therapeutic measure that not only top athletes use to improve performance. Especially with numerous neurological or orthopedic diseases as well as movement disorders, SRT Zeptoring achieves measurable success.

The pleasant and painless therapy is based on mechanical stimuli that you absorb through your feet – randomly so that your body cannot “get used to” the stimulus. This optimizes the interaction between receptors, nerves and muscles.

Mobility improvement

Many people suffer from tension and pain in their back, neck, arms or legs. 80% of these complaints are proven to be due to shortened muscles and the associated restrictions on freedom of movement.

With our flexibility concept fle-xx you work in a hurry on the cause of most back and joint problems

Sensopro

Sensopro was developed from 2008 by Kaspar Schmocker at the University of Bern. As part of his sports studies, he wanted to construct a device that enables coordination training under stress. With complex movements, gentle on the joints and easy and safe to use. Last but not least, training on this device should be fun and motivating.
This resulted in a comprehensive concept that focuses on the added value of coordination. In order to prevent injuries and improve performance, it is not only recommended for competitive athletes to train coordination under stress. Less ambitious exercisers also benefit enormously from it.
