Magdalena Wawerková
Problem : Neck pain
Therapy: Online therapy
Read More
(Google translate) Thank you very much for your effective help. Without physical contact between the patient and the physiotherapist, my condition improved significantly. During the six ONLINE THERAPIES, instead of being blocked, I have a fully functional neck and significantly better shoulder mobility. I see the reason for success in:
- a clear explanation of the nature of the difficulties and the ways to remedy them,
- demonstration of effective exercises and verification of their implementation by the patient, correction of errors,
- by sending videos as guides.
Mgr Pertoldová does not overwhelm the patient with an excess of information and assigns homework realistically. I have met a number of physiotherapists in my life. I can state that the approach, procedure and results of Mgr. The Pertolds are at an incomparably higher level. M. Wawerková

I am SO happy and feel so lucky to have found Magdalena. Unfortunately, I have had some very bad experiences with doctors and health-related services in the Czech Republic but Magdalena was a true exception to that. She really, genuinely, cares about her patients. My case was a bit complicated and she went above and beyond to help me and didn't stop until I was back at 100%. She was available 100% of the time I reached out to her and she followed up on me almost every day. I would not only recommend, but encourage anyone to go to her if you are looking for a physiotherapist. Plus - she speaks perfect English (very well above Czech average) which makes communication very fluent and easy for us foreigners.

Magdalena has helped me enormously with my rehabilitation from a long lasting back pain. I finally found someone who was able to correctly identify what is going on and what exactly to do about it. We did a series of online consultations which were simple but very effective. I was given a clearly explained exercise 'homework' to do in between. Initially I didn't think it's possible to do physio online effectively but to my delight Magdalena's wealth of experience and knowledge proved otherwise. All was easily done by video observations and consultations. Her warm, friendly and relaxed manner made those sessions a pleasant experience. I know I would be back here should I ever experience another physio issues. Thank you! I cannot recommend her services highly enough.

I highly recommend Magdalena. I had broken my arm and was in a cast for 4 weeks. When the cast came off I tried doing some exercises on my own to get back my range of motion in the elbow & wrist (which had been immobilized in the cast). After several weeks of not making any progress, I went to see Magdalena. After only 2 physical therapy sessions with her I had regained a significant amount of range of motion, and after 3 weeks I was almost back to 100%. I could not have done this without her! Thank you, Magdalena!

Magdalena is a great person and an extremely competent doctor. I have been impressed by her abilities, the quality of the service and her amazing human touch. I highly reccomend her. I had severe back pain, I could not sit, she fixed my problems, giving me immediate relief. Thanks to her I could get back to my normal routines. She speaks a perfect English, fantastic the mobile-app which helps you to exercise properly and keep track of your progress. It is so easy to book an appointment on the web-site, it is also possibile to book it late afternoon, great location too. By far the best choice in Prague.

Excellent postnatal consultations by a very experienced and friendly practitioner. I was impressed by the accuracy of problem identification during our online appointments. After just a few weeks of working with Ms Pertoldova I feel so much better. Well worth trying her physio services.

I've been working with Magdalena on chronic pain associated with shin splints for the last 3 - 4 weeks and have seen consistent progress over that time. Her professionalism and attention to details inspires great confidence, and leaves me coming out of each PT session feeling more confident that I'm on the right track to overcoming my problem. The exercises she provided me for my recovery are easy to do which makes sure I don't fall behind on my progress, and they feel very targeted at my problem, which isn't something I've experienced with other physical therapists. I really couldn't recommend Magdalena any more highly!

Magic in Prague . I visited the clinic for foot pain, the pain was ongoing for 4 weeks, I came out from the clinic walking pain free after one session. The doctor listened carefully and was knowledgeable. Very happy with my experience.

I can´t praise Magdalena enough. Excellent and affordable physio services. I had a combined online and in-clinic therapy with Magdalena. I live in Ireland. It happened that I injured myself during the lockdown in April and May. It initially felt awkward to seek help online but my rib injury was limiting my breathing, affecting my daily life and no other help was available. My doubts quickly dissipated as the first online session already brought some results. According to Magdalena, it was her first time she was guiding a patient to do a rib mobilization over internet :) I am back to my surfing and my other favourite sports. Thank you for the physio work and the mental support!

The lifetime prevalence of non-specific (common) low back pain is estimated at 60% to 70% in industrialized countries.
