What we do
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a subspecialty of orthopedics, one that deals with joints, bones, muscles, tendons and the spine, as well as the treatment after spinal surgery, which consists of joint operations, accidents and sports injuries. These specialists deal with the conservative treatment of all diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The goal of orthopedic rehabilitation is to restore physical ability and return the patient to everyday life.
Most common diseases
The most common diseases and injuries in orthopedic rehabilitation include:
Spinal disorders, for example, a herniated disc or spinal stenosis
Chronic back pain
Post-spinal surgery issues
Work and leisure accidents as well as sports injuries
Degenerative joint diseases, i.e. knee osteoarthritis or hip osteoarthritis
Care after an artificial joint is implanted, like a hip TEP or knee TEP
Care after knee surgery, hip surgery, shoulder surgery, etc.
Post-treatment after amputations
Specialists in orthopedic rehab
Specialists in orthopedic rehab are experienced and qualified orthopedic surgeons who focus on the patient’s rehabilitation and any follow-up treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic rehabilitation is considered to be an effective pain therapy for arthroses (wear and tear of the joints), diseases of the spine, post-spine operations or after endoprosthetic surgery. In addition, this type of rehabilitation can be used to counteract degenerative musculoskeletal diseases, the consequences of musculoskeletal injuries or inflammatory and metabolic musculoskeletal diseases.
