Neurofeedback is based on the fact that human brain is capable of generating different electromagnetic wavelengths, each typical of a given activity. Therefore, the training acts by frequency amplification of desirable wavelengths and attenuation of the unwanted ones. It works on the principle of "brain plasticity" (aka neuroplasticity aka neural plasticity), which involves neuronal capability of permanent functional changes. Thus, the patient works with their therapist on a new, more effective brain working pattern. Neurofeedback training boosts attention and concentration, increases stress resistance and improves creative thinking ability.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HbOT) provides oxygen to all cells, which suffered damage due to hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Oxygen administered at higher pressure revives the cells, stimulating them to work. Insufficient tissue oxygenation is the cause of most diseases. During treatment in a hyperbaric chamber, the damaged cells "wake up" and get activated. HbOT has an established efficacy in a number of conditions, such as nervous diseases, cardiovascular diseases and systemic diseases. It delays skin and organ ageing. It accelerates tissue repair processes, even in wounds difficult to heal, decreases swelling (oedema), and facilitates post-surgical recovery. It improves fitness and, therefore, performance, which is the key issue in athletes.

It is one of taping methods using Kinesio Tex Gold tapes developed by dr Kenzo Kase. The tape has longitudinal stretch properties of about 130-140% (does not limit range of motion). Its weight and thickness mimic the qualities of the human epidermis. It is drug-free, latex-free, water-resistant, and the wave pattern adhesive improves patient comfort by allowing the skin to breathe.
Orthokine involves administering to a patient a mix of autologous serum proteins obtained from their own blood. As a mix of autologous serum proteins, Orthokine® is not considered a foreign substance by the patients' body. The method restores balance (homeostasis) in an inflammatory site, thus slowing or completely resolving inflammation and progressive tissue destruction. It is also very effective facilitating healing in patients after injuries, ensuring speedy recovery. First, a blood sample is taken from the vein on a patient's forearm using a special EOT®II system syringe. Growth factors as well as so-called interleukin antagonists (e.g. IL-1Ra), which inhibit inflammation at the injection site, are enriched in the serum by the special processing method. The autologous conditioned serum (for short: ACS) is prepared and injected into the joint of the patient the blood was collected from.

Stem cells – the hope of medicine and the chance for the patients for a better life. Human body has its own regenerative cells, known as stem cells. They have a unique ability to "repair" damaged and/or injured tissue. These are the only normal human cells able to differentiate to other types of cells and undergo a potentially unlimited number of cell division cycles, which makes them so precious in contemporary medicine. In our centre, we use adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), that is, stem cells harvested from the patient's own fatty tissue. They offer a chance to treat a number of serious conditions, which has not been treatable and/or curable until recently. They, for instance, enable successful treatment of cancers, such as leukaemia. They can also be used in vascular and reconstructive surgery, plastic and aesthetic surgery and for treating extensive skin burns. The ASCs have been a breakthrough in treatment of myocardial dysfunction. In orthopaedics, they are used for treating injuries. Stem cell injection stimulates tissue repair, accelerates healing, and effectively resolves symptoms of injury in cases where other treatments proved unsuccessful.
