Good doctor in Kiel (English or German)

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I really need to see a physio. I've been dealing with a sports injury for a month and a half. I've rested it, I've googled it etc and I'm not getting anywhere. My experience has always been that general doctors don't know what they're talking about with injuries whereas a physio can give useful practical advice... I visited my hausarzt and they just told me to wear a bandage 24/7 for SIX MONTHS (bear in mind this is not a severe injury, I've been walking on it since the start) and to do no sport for SIX MONTHS and just wait. They refuse to refer me. I will pay privately if I need to but does anyone know a doctor who's more willing to do referrals for this sort of thing?

Hi @bxey

 

I don't live in Kiel so can't recommend a particular specialist but this is the tool to use to find one -> Arzt- und Psychotherapeutensuche der KVSH | Med Doctor & Psychotherapist search for Schleswig-Holstein

 

When you land on the page click first on the button '+ Erweiterte suche' (extended search). This allows you to use the 'Fremdsprachen' option button to select doctors or therapists who speak or understand one or more foreign languages.

Fill out the boxes or select from their scroll down menus as per these hints and you'll find several physiotherapeutic doctors in and around Kiel who claim to have English language abilities. If you're happy dealing with monolingual German doctors there will be a lot more results.

 

Incidentally under the scroll down for 'Zusatzbezeichnung' (additional accreditation) you may find certain classes of Sportsmediziner who may be specialized in dealing with the typical injuries and risks encountered by, eg, university or professional sports players.

 

Gute besserung
