Fizjo-Sport Center for Physiotherapy and Motor Skills has been cooperating for 2 years with Prof. Shirley Sahrmann and the University of Saint Louise, Missuri (USA). We are very pleased that the concept of Prof. Sahrmann’s Movement System work, known all over the world, is also being spread in Poland precisely thanks to the work of our physiotherapists from the Fizjo-Sport Center. Patients convince themselves on a daily basis of the effectiveness of MSI therapy thanks to the thorough diagnosis and evaluation of the musculoskeletal system based on the work system of Professor Sahrmann. The musculoskeletal system is a physiological system whose main function is to generate movement in the body as a whole or in part. As with other systems in the body, dysfunctions arise here as well, which must be properly diagnosed and treated. The physiotherapist is the person responsible for the proper evaluation and rehabilitation of this system.

Dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system arise in response to abnormal loading of tissues during activities of daily living and are related to individual characteristics. Repeated movements and assumed posture during daily activities generate changes in the tissues that are the main cause of these dysfunctions. Disorder syndromes of the movement system of the cervical spine, thoracic lumbar spine, and hip are carefully examined with analysis to identify individual dysfunction syndromes and choose the appropriate treatment strategy. The goal is to be able to identify movement abnormalities, misalignment, length, stiffness and muscle performance and their relationship to pain syndromes.

The tests include elements of investigation to develop and confirm a diagnosis and identify factors contributing to a given dysfunction. This provides the physiotherapist with complete information and enables him or her to undertake an appropriate treatment program, which will consist of a therapeutic exercise program involving the correction of abnormal alignment and movement patterns related to function and physical activity.

Indications for treatment according to MSI:

Spinal pain (disc disease, sciatica, degenerative changes).
Hip pain and degenerative changes (FAI, acetabular conflict, hip dysplasia, OA degenerative changes).
Hip pain and degenerative changes (FAI, acetabular-femoral conflict, hip dysplasia, OA degenerative changes).
Knee pain (chondromalacia, patellofemoral syndrome, jumper’s knee, patellar ligament tendon injury and strain).
Shoulder pain (subarbar conflict, rotator cone damage, instability).
Painful degenerative changes in the cervical spine.
