Gyula Tamás Szigetvári, MSc

physiotherapist, manual therapist

I treat – in my independent practice – mainly musculoskeletal pain in athletes, sedentary persons and patients after hospital rehabilitation.

I supplement the evidence-based examination and treatment method of physiotherapy with a holistic approach of manual medicine and manual therapy requiring university degree.

I spent several years in London, in the musculoskeletal, neurological, orthopedic and oncological departments of public hospitals, which enhanced my knowledge with a new kind of system theory and practical pragmatism.

Previously, as a personal therapist of the coach-driving team of Hungarian national team, I participated in maximizing the physical performance of daily workouts and races as well as in preventing injuries.

I taught foreign students at the rehabilitation department of Sports Hospital.

My treatment is based on a detailed movement examination which can be used to map the condition of muscles, the ranges of joint movements and nerve involvement.

In addition to the medical diagnosis, I differentiate the origin of the pain by special tests and assess the condition of the affected tissues. This is the basis of the treatment plan and – depending on the duration of recovery – the therapeutic goal can be decided together with the patient.

The procedure of therapy:

  • Recording anamnesis (medical history)
  • Physical movement examination (viewing, posture analysis, range of motion, muscle strength, nerve involvement)
  • Making functional diagnosis
  • Treatment plan discussion

Soft tissue treatment, joint mobilization during manual therapy:

  • Fascia release (protection of connective tissue surrounding the whole body)
  • PIR (postisometric relaxation)
  • Streching
  • Joint and neuromobilization
  • Sensomotoric training
  • Adequate strengthening and stretching of deep muscle
  • Posture control
  • Funcional training

Beyond the continuous scientific development, my professional motivation is the individualized treatment of patients suffering from the disease, and the restoration of their health as soon as possible, thus creating the conditions of a health-conscious, harmonious life.

The fruit of my active sporting is the successful completion of the olympic distance at the AJ Bell Triathlon in London.
