Education and work history
OMT physiotherapist, 2009
Levels 1 and 2 fascial manipulation
I graduated as a physiotherapist in 2002 at the University of Applied Sciences in Rovaniemi. At the time, I already knew that, within the extensive field of physiotherapy, I would focus on the area of my main interest – musculoskeletal problems. My desire to find out the cause of patients’ symptoms led me into continued education immediately after my graduation; I first trained in the basics of manual therapy and then studied OMT (3.5 years). I have also gained qualifications in acupuncture and fascial manipulation (Levels 1 and 2). I regularly participate in continued education.
Rather than treating symptoms, I focus on finding out the cause of the problem and addressing it. I am interested in functional problems and consider them to be the area in which a physiotherapist’s skills and know-how are at their strongest. I am particularly interested in hip/lower extremity and neck/upper extremity problems, joint problems, temporomandibular disorders and strain-related symptoms.
I am fortunate to work at Orton, an institution that allows me to work with similarly minded colleagues and favours multidisciplinary collaboration. Collaboration with colleagues and specialists leads to effective treatment with good outcomes.
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.
