when you visit me for the first time:
You suffering from pain or other disorders (exeption: if you are suffering from tinnitus - the earlier you come - the better) for more than 6 weeks?
Maybe you had an accident or a tumor disease?
Maybe there was an other trigger or you can´t find one - maybe it`s more like a continous slowly worsening of your problems?
The fact is:
You are not able to deal with
- your daily hassles
- you free time without stress - (because of your pain disorder).
You start to retract yourself
- from friends
- from your family
You are not able to perform
- your hobbies
- your favorite sport/activities
You ask yourself how to get along in this condition with your
- or in private life
Maybe you got statements like
- „You are completely healthy - nothing is damaged“
- “This pain condition can not be explained by these minimal variations“.
- “Everything healed properly.“
- „This is psychosomatic“.
This makes you fell insecure because you are still suffering from pain or other physical problems.
- took strong medication according to a plan
- you had series of injections
Maybe you had
- an operation
- or many appointments with a lot of different therapists
but the pain did not go away
To make a professionally competent medical advice possible and to bring all the treads of your medical Odyssey together again, you may bring ALL the medical results - new and relevant old ones.
According to your health problems it would be important to bring for example:
- neurologic results
- orthopadic results
- possibly rheumatologic results
- written results of a radiologist: for example MRI, X ray
- results about internistic diseases
- results about psychiatric/psychosomatic diseases
- laboratoy values, blood findings, including inflammatory markers, thyroid function, (and, if indicated, after consulting your general practitionier maybe a small screening for inflammatory disease including the markers (z.B. ACCP, RF))
Essential for futher diagnosis of your pain disorder I kindly ask you to fulfill the "Deutsche Schmerzfragebogen", which is attached to the website.
For the careful inspection of your individual results before our first conversation I will need approximatly 30 minutes.
For the first appointement you may plan about 1.5 hours.
How does the therapy continue?
To get to know you and to get a clear picture of your symptoms - also your strategies, individual resources and self-healing potential - i will need a few more appointements with you.
In the meantime we will work on individual therapeutic strategies and deepen that new knowledge - or combine these with other therapeutic options of different fields of therapeutic methods.
You will experiance a lot of new strategies and understanding concerning your pain/stressdisorder:
for example the protection methods of your body, the muscle, the neuronal connections - neuroplasticizy and deep learning - because your body is able to learn pain on all levels and the body is also able to unlearn pain again.
I will accompany you on that very personal way.
You will learn from me and I will learn from you.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
