Exercise is the best medicine
Balgrist Move>Med brings together medical practices, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, training assessment and counselling, and a fitness centre, all under one roof.
Our team of doctors will examine you as an outpatient, without a specific referral from your doctor. You can make an appointment with us directly. We offer a second opinion service before elective surgery, efficient expert medical care after an accident, and professional sports medicine services. We are a wide-ranging specialist team with an outstanding medical network carefully built up and nurtured over many years.
Physiotherapy can offer help after accidents, operations (orthopaedic or trauma surgery, and cardiac surgery) and problems with strength or weight bearing. It’s not only important to treat symptoms but also to find out the cause and the best treatment using various techniques. The first thing in physiotherapy is to establish personal goals, whether short- or long-term.
You’re training hard but don’t know whether you are working at the right target heart rate? You don’t do any sport but would like to start doing something good for your health? You want to run a marathon or don’t want to be overtaken by your children in the New Year’s Day fun run?
If you have difficulty breathing or a stitch in your side when you run, if your back or knees hurt when you go jogging, or you’d simply like a check-up: we’re here to help.
Balgrist Move>Med has the latest equipment and know-how in the field of elite sports. We offer professional advice for everyone regardless of their fitness level.
With the aid of lactate level performance testing, you can find the right range of exercise for efficient training. Our asthma and methacholine challenge tests will help overcome breathing difficulties. We can do lactate and fat measurements on the spot, or wherever it’s easiest for you, which is a big advantage for groups and clubs. Do someone a favour and send them one of our gift tokens.
A good idea: Balgrist Move>Med training centre with doctors and physiotherapists. At certain times, a specialist in sports medicine is available in the training centre to answer your questions.
Whether young or old, a recreational athlete or an Olympic champion, Balgrist Move>Med trains everyone with a personalised programme to meet their needs. You will be supervised by fully qualified sports teachers. Thanks to the wide variety of fitness club memberships available, you can achieve your goals with personal training.
As a member, you can also take advantage of reduced rates for our interesting courses. In addition, childcare is offered free of charge in the state-of-the art fitness centre.
Die Physiotherapie kann Hilfe bieten nach Unfällen, Operationen (orthopädischen, traumatologischen Operationen und Herzoperationen) und Belastungsproblematiken.
Eine wichtige Rolle spielt dabei nicht nur die Symptombehandlung, sondern auch die Suche nach den Ursachen und deren Behandlung durch verschiedene Techniken. Eine individuelle Zielsetzung, sei sie kurz- oder langfristig, ist oberstes Gebot der Physiotherapie.
