Markus Erhard

Pain & Performance Specialist

Markus is specialized in development and teaching of his unique treatment approach, that has become a revolutionary method for pain relief of acute and chronic myofascial pain syndromes and enhanced sporting performance.

I am happy to introduce you to my own treatment method, ERHARD THERAPY, that I apply and teach since 2008 all over the world, for sports performance and pain therapy regarding all conditions of musculo-skeltal pain like arthosis, low back pain, tennis elbow, pain and problelms with knee, hip, shoulder, neck etc. due to bad posture, strain, stress, overuse, or after injury or surgery.

I have been working with patients and top athletes from all over the world. Including English Premier Football & Rugby clubs, over 30 UK  national teams and many other national teams from over 25 countries.

Since 2008 I have been working with therapists and athletes in elite sports, treating players from over 15 clubs of the English Premier League and the Bundes League like Manchester City FC, FC Liverpool, West Ham FC, Aston Villa FC, Manchester United FC, Brighton Hove Albion, Stoke City FC, Wigan Athletics FC, Cardiff City FC, Brighton & Hove Albion, Norwich City FC, Derby County FC, England Football National Team, Paris St. Germain, FC Bayern Munich, SC Freiburg, 1. FC Cologne, 1. FSV Mainz 05, FC Ingolstadt, Borussia Moenchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, 1899 Hoffenheim, FC St Gallen, and many Rugby clubs and rugby national teams (London Wasps Rugby, London Irish Rugby, Northampton Saints Rugby, England Rugby, Scotland Rugby, Wales Rugby).

It is absolutely great to work in elits sports, but my heart also beats for patients with pain, especially those, that have been suffering for a long time, having tried ´everything´ to get the pain rid of their lives.

„The way I achieve my successful results is unique and cannot be compared with other therapy methods. It is neither physiotherapy nor osteopathy. It is NEW!
New approach, new thinking, new strategies, new results!“
„My claim is, you have to experience it to be able to believe it.“

It is about normalizing tension and programming pain free and non-restricted movement patterns. Without any medication / drugs.

In most oft he cases it only needs a couple of treatments. The breakthrough usually is achieved during (not after) the first session.

Many patients say: „You have to experience it to be able to believe it.“
The changes usually come instantly and almost all of the patients and clients are astonished and overwhelmed about the feeling and experience that happens in their body.

Very often I see disbelieving stares once they understand and feel where their pain comes from. Almost every time the causes are distributed in various parts in the body. It is not seldom that the painful spots are not part of the causes.

One part of the treatment are special movement sequences, that become home work, for long lasting results, becomming better and better.

Due to the new diagnostics according to Markus Erhard one can figure out dificites and dysfunctions before one gets injured or feels any pain.
Therefore it makes sense to get a treatment, even though there is no pain.
You could use it as a regular warranty of fintess for humans.

Treatments vary between 45 minutes and 2 hours – usually they are 60 minutes. Also depending on the travel distance of the patients / clients.

I am looking forward to getting to know you.
