Physiotherapy services

Pain, muscle dysfunctions and joint problems can impede everyday life, hobbies and work. These kinds of problems are the most common reasons for seeking help from a physiotherapist. Other reasons can be stiffness in joints, weakness, numbness, headache or even dizziness. Various kinds of disorders and injuries in the musculoskeletal system can be prevented or treated through physiotherapy.

The physiotherapist is specialised in movement, mobility and disorders in the human locomotive system. The physiotherapist does not only treat the acute symptoms; an important part of his or her work is to find and treat the underlying causes and disorders. In this way, he or she can efficiently prevent the problems from reoccurring or becoming chronic.

We offer physiotherapeutic expertise in the following fields: 

  • Physiotherapy for pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Maitland
  • Mulligan
  • Orthopedic manual physiotherapy (OMT)
  • Psychophysical physiotherapy
  • Lower limb analysis and foot orthoses

The rehabilitation plan is always drawn up according to the individual’s specific needs. In cases of acute injuries or illnesses, it is important to relieve the symptoms quickly and prevent the problem from becoming worse. In cases of chronic pain, it is more important to find and treat the underlying cause. Our physiotherapeutic treatment methods include individual therapeutic exercises as well as advice and guidance. When necessary, the physiotherapist can also use various manual treatment methods for joints and soft tissue, neural tissue mobilisation, fascia treatment and supportive taping. Some physiotherapists also use acupuncture, such as to relieve pain or relax muscles.


Instructions

1.

Make an appointment by calling 09 7750 800 or at the reception desk of any Diacor medical centre. You can also book an appointment in our online booking system. Our physiotherapists are listed below under the section Experts.

  • It is a good idea to book at least three appointments, e.g. one per week, to ensure sufficient follow-up treatment. After your first visit, when your problem has been assessed by the physiotherapist, you can cancel or reschedule your appointments as necessary.
  • If you have any special requirements, for instance if you want to see a physiotherapist who uses acupuncture, please let us know when scheduling your appointment.
2.

If you have previously received treatment elsewhere, please bring any relevant test results and case histories with you.

3.

Please arrive on time for the first appointment, so you have time to fill Diacor physiotherapy preliminary information form. You can get the form at the reception when signing in.

Expenses

The price depends on how long the treatment takes and on the physiotherapist’s level of expertise. For instance, the price for a 45-minute session starts from 71 €. However, a doctor's referral for physiotherapy entitles you to a small Social Insurance Institution (Kela) reimbursement. Physiotherapy is available even if you do not have a referral.
