“Our job isn’t just to do surgeries, the patients get holistic treatment for their disorder under the same roof. We have the most experienced physiotherapists, pain management physicians, and physiotherapists working together to plan the most practical treatment options and rehabilitation progresses for a patient”, says Jyrki Törnwall, the chief physician at Helsinki Hospital.
The main goal in physiatry is to study, prevent, treat, and rehabilitate dysfunctions caused by diseases and injuries in a way that takes into account the patient’s working environment and life situation as a whole.
Physicians specialize in injuries and diseases of the back, neck, upper limbs, and lower limbs, pain syndromes, as well as certain injuries and diseases of the nervous tissue.
Physiotherapist is an expert in movement, mobility, functional capacity, and rehabilitation. At Helsinki Hospital, we take clients into account individually and holistically, supporting them in rehabilitation, whether it is for a problem that affects everyday life, ability to work, or athlete’s return back to sport. The most suitable forms of treatment are chosen together with the client based on individual factors and the client’s goals and needs.
Physiotherapists at Helsinki Hospital are accomplished and experienced professionals who are qualified in the field of rehabilitation and have versatile expertise in therapy as well. Our physiotherapists work in a close cooperation with physicians and other medical personnel to ensure that our client’s treatment goes as flexibly as possible. A physician often refers patients to physiotherapist’s appointment, in which case Kela compensates for the treatment. If you wish to, you can also ask for physiotherapist’s assessment and advice without a referral.
Lymphatic therapist’s appointment
Lymphatic therapy is a specialized form of physiotherapy, which is used to alleviate edema caused by various reasons. Lymphatic therapy reduces swelling, improves the patient’s mobility, and eases pain caused by a surgery or injury. In cases where lymphatic insufficiency has triggered edema, lymphatic therapy and lymphedema products are used to alleviate the swelling. Lymphatic therapy also eases pain and relaxes the patient’s body with its gentle touch. Lymphatic therapy has been a successful method in the treatment of rheumatism, fibromyalgia, and CRPS clients. Different states of inflammation of nerve tissue and connective tissue structure are also an indication to test the effectiveness of lymphatic therapy.
Lymphatic therapy can be used as a treatment of its own, or in combination with other treatment methods of physiotherapy. The treatment activates the lymphatic system’s activity with light, rhythmical movements. This improves the lymphatic circulation in the patient’s body and alleviates edema. In addition to lymphatic therapy, it is recommended to enhance the lymphatic circulation of the body by movement therapy and various lymphedema products.
