Education and work history
Physiotherapist, B.Sc., 2001
Licentiate in Medicine, 2007
Specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 2014
I studied for the degree of Licentiate in Medicine at the University of Oulu in 2001–2007. I specialised in Rehabilitation, Paediatric Surgery and Oncology at University of Helsinkiin in 2007–2014. I joined Orton in 2014.
I became interested in biomechanics and human physiology because of my strong background in sports. My physiotherapy education served as a basis for my specialisation. I am still interested in issues at the margins of medicine, human performance capacity, rehabilitation, movement and pain, the perception of illness and psychological issues. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the specialty that provides the best opportunities to address these areas. I am also interested in pain management and symptom control.
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.
Orton has Finland’s most versatile private pain management clinic, specialising in the treatment of patients with pain. At the pain management clinic, we work out the causes of your pain together with you and identify suitable treatment and rehabilitation methods as well as ways to cope with chronic pain.
If you suffer from constant pain or have pain on movement, contact us at Orton. Orton has Finland’s top expertise in pain management. You are welcome to visit a specialist without a referral.
Orton’s physiotherapists specialise in treatment and rehabilitation for conditions involving severe pain and dysfunction. The methods used include different therapies, active exercise, acupuncture and relaxation.
