Dr. med. Bärbel Tiemann

The combination of sports and medical studies resulted in me being particularly interested in musculoskeletal disorders (muscle, tendon, fascia, joint diseases).

In 1992 at the beginning of my assistant time in the sports traumatology Freiburg (Prof. Klümper) the specialist title for physical and rehabilitative medicine (PRM) was newly introduced. A specialty, similar to orthopaedics without surgery, but with parts from internal medicine and neurology, in order to be able to recognize and treat long, complex, and interdisciplinary disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

I see my task in finding the causes of painful movement restrictions, injuries, damage caused by misuse or overuse, discussing them with the patient and then treating them optimally.

I consider my own movement therapy with all its supporting possibilities (e.g. manual therapy, osteopathy, medical training therapy, functional training, rehabilitation sport etc.) to be one of the main pillars of successful rehabilitation. With physical and rehabilitative medicine, all conservative (non-surgical) medicine can be used to its full potential.

It is always a pleasure for me to observe how injured athletes can return to their sport in an efficient way through a specified rehabilitation programme, how diseases of the musculoskeletal system can be eliminated, or how chronic illnesses can at least be improved.
