WHAT IS MANUAL THERAPY ?

Manual therapy is a method in which the doctor uses his hands to complete the examination, and then to treat muscles, tendons and affected articulations (whether it is in the shoulder, spine, arm, hand, hip, knee, foot, etc…). Functional disorders causing pain or blockages are analysed and treated gently. Manual therapy, performed by specialists (in orthopaedic treatment for example) who obtained a supplementary diploma in manual therapy, is recognised by the FMH of the SAMM (Swiss Medical Association of Manual Medicine). A doctor who practices manual therapy uses chiropractic and osteopathic techniques combined with their initial specialty. Manual therapy is very efficient in addition to other pain treatment methods such as acupuncture, injection therapy and ozone therapy. It improves the mobility of shoulder joints, spine (at cervical or lumbar level), knees, arms, wrists and ankles (among others).

MY TRAINING IN MANUAL MEDICINE (SAMM)-FMH

The FMH training program in MANUAL MEDICINE, which is managed by the Swiss Medical Association of Manual Medicine (SAMM), is based on strict criteria and continuous training for at least two years. This training is followed by a final oral and written exam. I obtained my manual medicine diploma in 1999 and recognition by the Swiss Medical Association of Manual Medicine (SAMM) in 2006.

REIMBURSEMENT THROUGH BASIC HEALTH INSURANCE

As a specialist in orthopaedic surgery FMH and a graduate in manual therapy SAMM-FMH, all my treatments can be reimbursed through basic health insurance (LaMal).
In the event of a high deductible of the basic insurance, it is also possible to bill the complementary insurance (diploma in chiropractics-NVS).
