Welcome to my appointment

I treat people of all ages who have musculoskeletal problems such as post-accident conditions, pain problems, or problems related to exercise and sports.
My appointment can be booked either online or by phone.


I have completed basic studies in Kuopio and Gothenburg and specialization studies in Helsinki.

Work experience

My work experience is based on long-term on-call work, working in primary health care and activities, especially in the rehabilitation of working-age people, but also veterans. My experience in spinal cord rehabilitation can also be utilized in many pain and functional problems. Since 2005, I have been involved in top sports related to nutrition, body management and recovery themes. As a result of this cooperation, both Olympic and World Championship medals have been achieved.

My special expertise

In connection with musculoskeletal symptoms and accidents, my special expertise is the restoration and maintenance of exercise and functional capacity, as well as pre- and post-operative rehabilitation planning. My ways of working essentially include listening to, understanding and motivating the client. The results are created in collaboration with other colleagues, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other necessary experts, with the client being an active factor and a success. The process often utilizes nutrition as part of rehabilitation.

In pain and dysfunction, my special expertise is in pelvic, back (neck, shoulder, chest and lumbar) and shoulder ailments. In upper and lower limb problems, I aim to constantly develop myself in my field of expertise as well.

Lecture and training are also pleasing to me in terms of learning and development.

I am active in school riding, I occasionally do navigating and I run / ski, I also practice golf. Gardening, berry picking and culture are also of interest and activities of mine.
