The orthopedic practice, and therefore OrthoTrain, is located next to the subway and commuter-train station of Friedrichstraße. If you’re arriving by public transportation, get out at Friedrichstraße and look for the Internationales Handelszentrum (IHZ). We’re on the fifth floor of the building right in front of it. Map
Please take your diagnosis along to your doctor’s appointment. The orthopedist attending to you at our practice will transmit your diagnosis and other clinical findings to the therapists at OrthoTrain.
Please allow an hour for each appointment. Usually therapy comprises ten to twelve appointments and is followed by a retest after which it is determined whether the therapy should be continued.
Showers are available in the changing area. If you ever forget part of your kit, we’ll be happy to help you out.
The therapists will evaluate the results with you immediately after the test and provide you with your records so you can add them to your files. The results will be discussed with you, and the appropriate therapy will be determined, when you see your doctor.
The therapists on the OrthoTrain team will answer any questions you may have about the tests and the training either in person or over the phone.
The doctor decides which test is right for which indication; that’s why it’s important for you to see your orthopedist before you make an appointment at OrthoTrain.

Usually the costs of testing and Medical Training Therapy are covered by private insurance companies.
Medical Training Therapy (MTT) constitutes a link between physical therapy, which is mostly based on passive measures, and subsequent independent training at a gym or club. In addition to an anamnesis, MTT incorporates a comprehensive analysis of performance and muscle function followed by training that teaches you how to address your deficits.

Physical therapy is hands-on, i.e. physical therapists use various techniques to mobilize joints and body parts. They also prepare patients for active training by showing them certain exercises and basic postures.
All services are provided on a referral-only basis, so you will first have to see your orthopedist.
