Sander Jürs

Sander JürsFor his entire conscious life, Sander has been active in sport and thus becoming a physiotherapist was natural for him. Sander graduated from Tartu Health Care College majoring in physiotherapy and has hereinafter participated in several seminars to learn more. In addition to working in private practice as a physiotherapist, he has also worked with different athletes and teams (Estonian futsal team, Estonian beach football team, track and field athletes).

Sander is mainly charmed by the diversity and wholeness of physiotherapy. It starts with identifying the problem, continues with finding the cause, and ends with a solution. The best reward, in this case, is satisfied and happy patient. In addition to physiotherapy, Sander provides Swedish and deep tissue massage. The latter is stronger kind of massage and he also calls it “therapeutic”.

Sander has been active in sport since childhood and has competed a lot. He is a long-distance runner and now runs under Sparta. You can meet him both in public races and Estonian championships.
