Rehabilitation modules

Manual therapy and physical therapy

Appropriate positioning of the joints with adequate joint stability is crucial for a good result.

All examination and training should be performed with the joints in a load-bearing position.

Knowledge, experience, and a high degree of precision is important!


Training in the Multi Cervical Rehabilitation System

Since 2007, Firda Physical Medicine Centre has had two MCU machines. The latest model is improved in regards to diagnostics of neck function compared to the first machine, which we received in 2001. Both machines are equally suitable with regards to rehabilitation.


Individually customized training program

We test you in many different poses, adapted to you and your injuries.

The results form the foundation for your training program, specially customized for your needs.


Functional stability training

Testing active function:

We emphasise the stability of back and neck under different weight bearing scenarios.


Traction

Low dose stimulation of the neck with light traction is for many a crucial step in the rehabilitation process in regards to active functionality with stability.


Cardiovascular testing and exercise

Good conditioning is important for:

  • Surplus energy
  • Tissue regeneration
  • Endurance

We use different methods of testing your conditioning adapted to your level of functioning.

Testing your conditioning is an important and positive tool for further training at home


Mobility and stretching

Testing and training of joint mobility and stretching muscles promotes good mobility and muscle function.

Stretching exercises in the sauna is an excellent combination. Many feel that the heat makes it easier to perform various mobility exercises.


TENS treatment/Laser/Pulsed Shortwave

Workouts are often concluded with TENS treatment (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) in the relaxation room.

Laser therapy and Pulsed Shortwave therapy are also used when needed.
