You regularly apply your knowledge when performing patient screening in the therapy and neurorehabilitation program at the most advanced robotics in our Polyclinics.

In addition to the specialist examinations, Dr. Kristić-Cvitanović also deals with ultrasound diagnosis of musculoskeletal disorders and applying the most up-to-date methods of treating degenerative diseases and acupuncture therapy.



Symptoms and diseases in which acupuncture therapy is helpful are:

  • Painful conditions (headache, neuralgia, lumboischialgia, spondylosis ...)
  • rheumatic diseases
  • degenerative diseases of the spine and joints
  • extracellular rheumatism (tendinitis, enthesitis, peri arthritis - painful shoulder)
  • fractures and sports injuries
  • neurological disorders (weakness, paresis and paralysis of peripheral nerves, post-stroke condition)



A trigger point (trigger) implies a sensitive area in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, and joints. Depending on the type, it is characterized by local and traditional pressure pain. An active trigger point causes local or distressed discomfort and pain and is latent only locally if idle.

The spread of pain in the environment of the pain is characteristic for each point, which means that pressure on a point may cause distressed pain by the pattern of the point at hand. A chronic tricuspid may sometimes indicate inflammatory degenerative diseases with stiffening individual or group joints. Usually, the needle's eye size is up to the size of the pea. It's not always easy to find them.

They may be due to acute (chronic) chronic overload of the muscles, anatomical anomalies, psychological factors (stress, fear), chronic infections, metabolic disorders (lack of vitamins C and B6), or resulting from over-consumption of coffee or alcohol.

Acute thoracic spots may cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, sinus and lower jaw pain, local and distal neck pain, various extremities, chest and abdomen, spinal cord, and back musculature, and untreated can result in asymmetry of the locomotor system and its even more significant consequences.
