Visceral Manipulation Therapy at AktivOrtho™
Visceral Manipulation Therapy acknowledges the fact that healthy organs have physiological motion. Visceral manipulation includes application of particular forces to boost this motion for keeping a patient’s musculoskeletal system healthy and active. Visceral manipulation (VM) was developed by Jean Pierre Barral, world-renowned French osteopath and physical therapist.
Who can benefit?
Pain and dysfunction can result from a disharmony between the organs and surrounding tissues. Visceral manipulation therapy addresses this lack of harmony. Some of the conditions that can be mitigated by visceral manipulation therapy are:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Postural dysfunction
- Bladder incontinence
- Acid reflux
At AktivOrtho™, our well-trained physiotherapists use proven and result-oriented techniques that incorporate the use of human energy and help the forces already at work within your body. Our specialised visceral manipulation therapy is helpful in treating a number of conditions with remarkable results. A series of gentle touch by our therapist can change your condition for the better.
Our highly experienced therapists follow a result-oriented three-way approach to reach the root cause of a problem and create an individualised treatment program:
- Evaluation of motion
- Assessing functional limitations
- Examining somatic structures
Our visceral manipulation therapy programs produce definite results such as:
- Reduction of pain
- Low negative stress
- Good metabolism
- Enhanced functioning of internal organs
- Better mobility within the musculoskeletal system
Mr. Solomon Simutowe
“I came to know about AktivOrtho™ while surfing the net. In April 2014, I visited the centre for the first time seeking treatment for my neck and side back pain. I was suffering from chronic cervical syndrome and lumbar insufficiency.
The rehabilitation process at AktivOrtho™ is more holistic. My whole body was assessed and treated thoroughly. The procedures were explained to me and outcomes were par excellent. In terms of quality and care, nothing can be compared with the holistic and enriching care which is offered at AktivOrtho™.
My health has been at its best in the last few months. I can’t ever thank Dr. Gerd Mueller (MD) and Dr. Abhishek Kumar enough. At AktivOrtho™, they go to the root cause of the problem and don’t just focus on the symptoms alone. Their focus and effort are directed toward overall rehabilitation of a patient and attention is given all throughout to every minute detail that would enable a person walk back on the path to recovery.
My friends and peers have been complimenting me as now I look different, a new me with a literal fresh lease of life”.
COMMENTS BY PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Mr. Abhishek Kumar
“Our rehabilitation and treatment plan for Mr. Solomon started with a comprehensive neck and back test and assessment. We began with the visceral manual therapy after tracing and isolating which included:
L) Descending Colon Release
R) Side Ilio- Ceacal junction
Then we continued with diaphragm release program which was followed by trunk and rib mobilisation. After this, we did a few stretches of his hip and lower back. After four sessions, patient felt much better with a full improved range of motion with no pain.
Currently, he is performing and dully following a Home Exercise Program (HEP) and would come to AktivOrtho™ for regular follow-ups wherein the effort shall be to further better his condition under our medical supervision”.
