Dr. Gassen’s specialist areas

In line with his holistic approach to treatment, Dr. Gassen set himself the goal early on of developing a comprehensive understanding of the many causes of musculoskeletal problems in sport and orthopaedic problems. As a result, he developed a number of symptom-related functional, exercise and kinematic / cybernetic methods of investigation. State-of-the-art scientific knowledge underpins the multi-modal and personalised diagnostic and therapeutic concepts used today. (www.ruecken-diagnostik-center.de, www.das-bewegungslabor.de)
