ACCORDING to the US National Library of Medicine, 80 per cent of us suffer back pain at some point in our lives. However, even if we are one of the 80 per cent, we do not need to suffer.
Centro Physis, headed up by Monica Algañaraz, is a specialist clinic for the treatment and prevention of back pain and related conditions.
“When a vertebra is misaligned, the brain underperforms in its very important regenerative function, which can cause a lot of conditions,” said Monica. “We consider that prevention and treatment are equally important in our approach to back problems.”
Monica, who has more than 40 years’ experience, is passionate about helping people with their pain, offering help and guidance to people with a range of bone-related pain conditions. “I treat a lot of conditions such as disc problems, bad posture, arthrosis, arthritis, repetitive strain injury, knee complaints, patients who have had a hip replacement, patients who have injuries as a result of accidents, etc,” said Monica.
She has worked alongside traumatologists in Argentina and Madrid, now bringing an optimum level of care to patients at her centre in Valle del Este Golf Spa, Vera.
When asked about her treatment, Monica explained: “My priority is pain and its treatment through painless physiotherapy and osteopathic techniques. I also help by re-educating the patient about their posture. Moreover, when the pain is reduced, I focus on side-effects and general wellbeing. For example, patients who suffer from back problems, after a few sessions may be surprised to find out that they are breathing better! Of course their posture has changed and their back has improved and even strengthened by my Micropostural® exercises after treatment.”
Centro Physis is highly recommended for patients with sports injuries of all sports and levels.
Patients who have lost mobility are very welcome. Monica said: “The best satisfaction comes from patients who have reached the end of the road in conventional medicine and are overjoyed to be playing golf again!”
