Pásztor Gabriella

Specialist Physiotherapist for Stroke and Neurological conditions and MDT McKenzie Therapist.

ARNI Therapy
I was introduced to the ARNI method and team in London and I am now a therapist for the organization as a Senior ARNI Instructor. I am the International Coordinator and Instructor of the ARNI Institute. As a physiotherapist I consider the ARNI method to be very effective and an excellent form of rehabilitation. Many of my patients are now physically independent, they gain self-confidence by learning the method. I have achieved my Senior instructor position with 25 years of professional experience, with continuous learning and application of my knowledge in the field. It is a great pleasure and honor for me to be the sole representative of this method. I am honored to introduce, apply, and teach thismethod; which has now been practised in London for over 17 years. It gives me great happiness to be able to help stroke survivors.  My experience over the years, my 3 diplomas, and 18 various postgraduate courses allows me to prove the success rate of the ARNI method within a short period of time.
As a physiotherapist, I see a great necessity for functional therapy options, so that patients can return to their daily active life and to have them gain back their once lost independence.

McKenzie Therapy - Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT)
With 20+ years of experience as a registered physiotherapist, I can apply the McKenzie method to patients suffering from musculoskeletal disorders. I am certified in the McKenzie A,B,C,D and E, courses. As a McKenzie therapist, I will evaluate, treat, and
create a preventative maintenance course of action. My goals for your therapy are: reducing pain, centralization of symptoms, and a complete recovery from pain. I will create a specialized personal programme which will include education, encouragement, an exercise programme, and self-care treatment. It is important to understand that in the beginning of the therapy you may incurred additional pain; however, after repetitions the pain will decrease. It is important to continue your independent” in home therapy” programme which I will outlined for you. The MDT programme refers primarily on self - treatment. However, if additional therapy is required; I am available for further assistance.
