Zygmunt Łukasz Borkowski

diplomate in osteopathy, physical therapist

Since 2005 I  run private therapeutic office Alternativa in Krakow. My main goal in everyday clinical practice is to offer a comprehensive diagnosis and osteopathic treatment of fascial and musculoskeletal complaints as an alternative to pharmacologically driven traditional medical approach. Among other I provide osteopathic diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions and disorders of the digestive and urogenital tract in adults and children. My particular interest is clinical nutrition and biochemistry of nutrition and the impact gives diet modification and the use of natural supplements to promote health and more effective treatment of patients complaints. I also recommend on proper body mechanics, exercise and healthy living habits.
