Education and work history
I qualified as a physiotherapist at the Helsinki-based Swedish-language ARCADA University of Applied Sciences in 2002. After obtaining my degree, I took a particular interest in physiotherapy for musculoskeletal problems. I took a short course in manual therapy and thus became interested in orthopaedic manual therapy (OMT). Before starting my OMT studies I obtained a qualification in Animal Physiotherapy at the University of Applied Sciences in Pori. I have always been with horses and started riding at age 7. My physiotherapy studies allowed me to naturally progress into providing physiotherapy for animals.
I qualified as an OMT physiotherapist in 2009. In 2014, I studied acupuncture on a course organised by Finland’s medical acupuncture society, which provided another opportunity to gain new insights. I have actively used Western-type acupuncture after this course and found it very helpful in managing my patients’ pain.
Over the years, I find my work more and more exciting. I enjoy my job and enjoy seeing patients’ situation change for the better, helping and solving problems. It is my calling to help both people and animals.
Currently, my work focuses on solving musculoskeletal problems in both human patients and animals. My clients include people of different ages, some of whom enjoy sports and exercise while others are physically less active. Musculoskeletal problems among riders are an area of personal interest.
Physiotherapy improves muscle balance and posture control. Orton’s skilled physiotherapists have extensive knowledge of the rehabilitation techniques used to increase mobility, improve functional capacity and reduce pain.
The knee is highly susceptible to injuries because of its extensive mobility, the high forces to which it is subjected, and the length of the leg bones. Knee ligament and meniscus injuries are common exercise-related problems. Orton is the Finnish expert in musculoskeletal disorders. We are here to help you. The first arthroscopic surgery in Finland was performed at Orton in 1976.
