Rheumatology concerns the recognition and treatment of rheumatic diseases, where the term is not precisely defined. Rheumatism generally refers to chronic inflammatory changes in the joints and spine, but soft tissue and internal organs can also be affected. However, most musculoskeletal pain is not inflammatory in nature.

Through my training, graduating with a double specialism in orthopedics and rheumatology, I have seen many deformed and dysfunctional structures and performed surgical interventions to reduce pain and improve function.


  • Digital X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Osteodensitometry (DXA) Registration
  • Laboratory investigation



  • Manual treatment
  • Acupuncture
  • Cryonic medical (cold therapy)
  • Stimulated ligament repair
  • Interventional pain therapy, particularly for the spine and intervertebral discs
  • Modern drug therapy in inflammatory diseases, including infusion therapy
  • Supply of bandages, orthotics and other aids

In addition, natural remedies are often used with good success; they contribute to cost savings in the use of drugs and do much to improve the quality of life of those suffering from rheumatism. I am pleased to share my experience in this area.
