Orthopedic Medicine Cyriax focuses on the diagnosis and conservative treatment of soft tissue lesions of the musculoskeletal system.

Global Cyriax Institute (GCI) offers training in the field of updated Orthopedic Medicine according to the method of Dr. James Cyriax, which places particular emphasis on clinical reasoning. This method focuses mainly on: history, inspection, functional examination, palpation, diagnosis, differentiation of diagnosis and techniques for the treatment of soft tissue disorders, such as deep transverse friction, mobilizations, infiltration, injections, tractions and manipulations.


The most important is to make a precise diagnosis. We will achieve this only after thorough examination of the patient consisting of: detailed interview, functional and clinical examination and if necessary palpation. The use of local diagnostic infiltration using a procaine solution can also be useful for differentiating the diagnosis. We must ask ourselves the basic questions: is the diagnosis made always reliable or is it our “wishful thinking”? is the way we came to make a diagnosis reliable (can we trust him)? Are the questions we ask relevant? Are the tests we use as objective as possible? Are our tests characterized by a sufficiently high specificity?


After making the right diagnosis, we must consider applying as much effective treatment as possible. We need to think about what would be the best treatment for the patient (adapted to the personality, patient’s age, type, duration and location of the injury). In the Cyriax Method we have to offer several different methods of treatment: deep transverse friction, manipulations, mobilizations, tractions, infiltrations and injections. The above treatment can easily be combined with self-therapy, or exercises used by the patient at home.
