The first step is the examination and locating the primary cause of symptoms. This is not necessarily found where symptoms are presented, the body is capable of compensating for specific problems.
The second step is targeted treatment of the most important blockages and physical restrictions (also referred to as somatic dysfunction and subluxation). The body is to be enabled to help heal itself.
The final step is particularly important. The body needs time to integrate the restored functions into its movement pattern. At this stage further treatment is counter-productive.
Having successfully completed my studies in sports sciences with secondary subject Sports medicine at the Goethe University in Frankfurt I have applied myself entirely to the medical care of professional athletes, national and international.
I also got my osteopathic qualifications at the International Academy of Osteopathy (5 years of education). Additional seminars at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in England complement my continuing education.
I am also qualified in the field of neural therapy (DÄGfAN), stimulated ligament repair (SLR) and mesotherapy.
Currently I am a doctoral student at the Medical Faculty of the University of Witten/Herdecke.
For over 23 years I worked for the Frankfurt Skyliners, Frankfurt Lions, Eintracht Frankfurt and the Frankfurt Galaxy.
I obtained my qualifications at the International Academy of Osteopathy (Diploma in Osteopathy) and at the Goethe University in Frankfurt (Approbation). Additional training seminars at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in England, made the recognition as a „sektoraler Heilpraktiker der Chiropraktik“ possible.
I am a resident Doctor for orthopedics and trauma surgery in the Asklepios Clinic in Langen and team doctor of the Löwen Frankfurt Ice Hockey GmbH.
Because of these activities, I can no longer offer appointments.
In the 19th century the American physician Dr. Andrew Taylor Still developed the medical treatment form termed osteopathy.
The term osteopathy is derived from the Greek words “Osteo” meaning bone and “pathy” meaning disease.
Modern chiropractic was founded by the Canadian Daniel David Palmer and perfected by Clarence Gonstead. They developed special techniques to resolve movement restrictions of the spine, gently and painlessly.
The term chiropractic is derived from the Greek words “Chiro” meaning hand, and “Praktik” meaning activity. The chiropractic/osteopathy concept is based on the understanding of integration of body, mind and soul, the correlation of structure and function, and the body’s potential to heal itself!
