Re: Chiropractor

I have to go back tomorrow, which is normal (it usually takes a few appointments to sort everything out.) It’s a little impersonal. You turn up and are assigned a cubicle, here you change, the chiropractor then comes and collects you, and you have your treatment and go back into your cubicle. This allows many patients to be seen in a short space of time. The Chiropractor did take his time talking to me and assessing my body. I didn't feel like he was rushing or anything like that. The experience wasn't as great as in South Africa but I'm still quite pleased. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Chiropractor

Here is one in Thalwil...

Dr. Jörg Hieringer
Chiropraktor SCG
Schwandelstrasse 20
8800 Thalwil
01 720 58 00

His office is a 5 minute walk from the Thalwil train station.

He went to school in the States for his Chiropractor degree and
his wife is from there - his English is excellent. My whole family
has been to him:-)

Re: Chiropractor -

I've been to:

Dr. Andre Barchli
Kilchbergsteig 11
8038 Zurich

+41 44 482 77 84

A little new-agey, but I like that. English is good. The office is nice, it feels very personal, homey. I went about 8 times and felt better.

Re: Chiropractor

Can anyone explain the difference (if any) between a chiropractor and an osteopath? I'm a great fan of the latter, used to go regularly in the UK and have a recommendation for the chiropractor in Waedenswil, but don't know the difference


Cheers

Chiropractor in Zurich

I'm in desperate need of a good chiropractor here in Zurich. My previous chiropractor took more of the holistic approach to her craft, not the "you come three times a week" assembly-line type I've encountered previously in the states. If anybody has any experience with a good chiropractor in Zurich please let me know.

Re: Chiropractor

Hi chemgoddess
I can highly recommend Dr. Christina Padua.
She is an American from San Francisco.
She has done a fabulous job on my back. Staff also speaks English.
The office is conveniently located at the tram stop Stauffacher in Zürich.

Badenerstrasse 21,
8004 Zürich

044 242 60 37

Re: Chiropractor

FYI- I would have to say about 100% of the chiropractors in Switzerland will speak perfect English because they all have to leave the country to get their chiropractic degrees. As of right now Switzerland doesn't offer that area of medical training but they are working on it.

A wonderful chiropractor that I've gone to and highly recommend in Biel/Bienne is-

Dr. Jean-Claude MERMOD
Florastrasse 32
2502 Biel/Bienne BE
Tel: 032 323 66 88

He is fluent in English, German, French, and Italian.

Also, a useful website for finding chiropractors, etc. in Switzerland is http://www.chirosuisse.info/d/html/

Re: Chiropractor

I just now had an appointment with the chiropractor in Thalwil that Carmen recommended (thanks for that info!). Was able to get an appointment right away. The phone number I had to use is a little different though:

Dr. Jörg Hieringer
Schwandelstrasse 20
8800 Thalwil
044 720 58 00

It is a pleasant office and even the receptionist speaks good English. The dr is very nice and did a great job - I feel better already!

Re: Chiropractor

can anyone recommend a chiropractor in or around Oerlikon? English speaking but as previously mentioned I assume they all speak English

I would go to a further afield one but I'm pretty much house bound at present with my bad back so the least traveling the better

Re: Chiropractor

Sorry, I have nothing in Oerlikon for you, but can recommend a Chiropractor who treats a relative of mine. He most probably speaks English, too, but you can call to be sure.

Dr. Jiri Vomacka
Chiropraktor
Birmensdorferstrasse 55
8004 Zürich
044 242 42 52

That would be a 25 minutes ride in Tram 14 from Oerlikon. Get well soon.

Re: Chiropractor

Thanks for the contact Nathu, I called up earlier today but they couldn't fit me in till Monday (didn't fancy another weekend of hobbling about) anyway they recommend me this place in Oerlikon

http://www.chiropraktik-oerlikon.ch/praxis.html

its in the Sternen Oerlikon Hotel building and they fit me in for an appointment today so I was very happy

Anyway I can highly recommend - I was treated by Dr. Sara Meier and she was very friendly and spoke good english

Re: Chiropractor

Hi all!

I can also HIGHLY recommend the practice in Stadelhofen: Luethy & Pulver. I have been going there for 3 years and its great. Both Thomas and Bernard are very experienced and they always fit you in in its an emergency. Hope you are well soon.
