DR. GÜNTER NIESSEN
The basis of the treatment is a comprehensive questioning and thorough examination. For the initial treatment, I therefore take up to 50 minutes together with you.
For this first appointment, please bring the following if possible:
- all already existing examination results
- Available images such as MRI, X-ray as CD or printout
- comfortable clothes (so that I can show you exercises that will contribute to your recovery)
For online consultations, you can also send me corresponding findings in advance.
Therapeutically, we then develop a holistic concept together, taking into account your overall situation. The following techniques can be used for this:

Orthopedics deals with the diseases of the human locomotor system and thus all those complaints that are associated with changes in the
- connective tissue and the
- Bones and joints
In order to develop a sustainable therapy concept for your complaints, I focus on the whole person and take your:
- Lifestyle Habits,
- physical activity level
- Working conditions and
- individual needs
I use the terms "gentle and integrative orthopedics" to describe myorthopedic approach, in which you and I take action together to restore your balance in a comprehensive sense, without using invasive or surgical methods.
Yoga with a therapeutic orientation is particularly close to my heart. In the sense of a "multimodal therapy concept", yoga offers not only physical exercises and breathing techniques, but also meditation, an outlook on life, as well as spiritual and philosophical aspects, in order to practically and actively find one's way back to a stable center from a holistic point of view.
Yoga Therapy can be used alone or in combination with the findings of modern medicine and Ayurveda. This depends on the severity of your disease or condition and your wishes and goals.
Manual medicine includes all techniques performed with the therapist's hands. In addition to chiropractic, the treatment mainly includes gentle, mobilizing muscle, fascia and connective tissue techniques.
After the manual-therapeutic treatment, I always carry out a stabilizing, active exercise treatment with you in the same session, which should then also be continued independently.
The slight modification of sporting and everyday movements is often helpful.
In addition, help with acute injuries, for example:
- Supportive bandages with orthoses or plaster cast
- dynamic bandages with kinesio tape
- Active ingredient applications as for ointment dressings
- Avoidance of overload
- Trigger point therapy or
- specific exercises
Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of Far Eastern-style acupuncture in treating various types of illnesses, especially various pain symptoms.
Via stimulation using ultra-thin, non-painful needles, specific points on the energy pathways are stimulated. This energy, the so-called "Qi" of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), flows along meridians or energy pathways and can thus be influenced by targeted intervention.
Acupuncture is able to reharmonize disturbed functional circuits of our organism and restore balance in the body.
Ayurveda translated means the "knowledge of life" and is the traditional Indian medicine. The view of human health differs significantly from that of modern medicine. It treats disturbances in the balance of the three bioenergies or functional principles that shape life, the doshas:
The doshas are in an individual balance in a healthy person. If disturbances occur, they can be corrected by adjusting the doshas.
- of the lifestyle,
- of the royal activity
- the diet and by means of medicinal herbs
In order to be able to offer more advanced and specialized applications of Ayurveda, I work closely with the Department of Naturopathy at the Immanuel Hospital in Berlin Wannsee as well as the Health Center Sun and Moon in Berlin-Mitte.
The costs for private patients are based on the scale of fees for physicians (Gebührenordnung für Ärzte -GOÄ-) and are mostly covered by private health insurances. covered by the private health insurance companies.
I treat patients who are not privately insured as self-pay patients and charge € 110.00 per treatment of up to 50 minutes.
