Rehabilitation

Term/Definition

Medical rehabilitation is understood as therapy options that aim to minimise the physical, psychological and social consequences of a disability or restriction of activity (e.g. due to operations, injuries, incorrect stress etc.) and the resulting disturbances in participation in professional or social life.

Therapy spectrum (focus on rehabilitation in orthopaedics and trauma surgery)

  • Shock wave therapy:
    s.o.
  • neural therapy:
    s.o.
  • Acupuncture:
    s.o.
  • Kinesiotaping:
    Is an elastic, breathable plaster that was developed a few years ago in Japan and became famous for its use in competitive sports. The tape is glued to the skin and through movement leads to an activation of the skin receptors, and thus to a heat development with improvement of the blood supply and lymph disposal, thus to metabolism-increasing and body-own healing processes. It is not a prescribable service, so that the costs are not covered by the statutory health insurance.
  • injection therapy:
    (Hyaject, ACP etc) s.o.
  • physiotherapy:
    a distinction is made between passive forms without the patient’s own motor activity (e.g. mobilisation, traction and extension treatments) and active forms with the patient’s active participation according to various methods and schools. (e.g. PNF, Bobath. Maitland, Feldenkrais, Dorn, Brügger, Cyriac )
    Special forms: Respiration therapy, relaxation therapy (e.g. autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation)
    Special forms: manual therapy, osteopathy with complementary techniques
  • Ergotherapy:
    It serves the recovery of complex movements, their preservation or avoidance of disease progression with the focus on self-active action. (e.g. muscle function training, coordination training, prosthesis training, ADL training, stress trainingTraining for sensitive dysfunctions)Medical training therapy and sports therapy:
    Muscle build-up training on equipment originally comes from the field of competitive sports and has also been successfully used in rehabilitation for many years.
  • Hydro- and Balneology:
    Water therapy (e.g. thermal bath applications in individual or group therapy)
  • Massage:
    Besides classical massage, this also includes manual lymph drainage, medicinal pain therapy: oral pain therapy is based on the 3-stage scheme of the WHO (World Health Organization). 1st stage: weak analgesics, e.g. Diclo, Ibuprofen, Katadolon, Novalgin, Arcoxia 2nd level: medium analgesics, e.g. Tramal, Valoron 3rd level: strong analgesics, e.g. morphine, oxigesic, palladon, fentanyl This results in a multitude of combinations that must be individually adapted and controlled. Intramuscular, subcutaneous, perineural and intraarticular injection therapy, see above. Hyaject, NT The drug-based pain therapy can be complemented by coanalgesics (additional pain-relieving drugs), e.g. muscle relaxants, anidepressants, anticonvulsants, corticosteroids.
  • Special pain therapy:
    The so-called pain therapy is a holistic, interdisciplinary treatment method for chronic pain conditions. It does not only focus on physical complaints and their treatment options. At the same time, the social environment and psychological problems are included.
    Function training:
    (long-term, special movement training as dry or water gymnastics for chronic illnesses)
    rehabilitation sport :
    (supplementary performance/ integration aid for disabled or chronically ill people, e.g. osteoporosis group, cardiac sports group)Outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation

Goal

our goal is to find the best possible solution with the patient. Most important for the rehabilitation is the disease clarification and the patients personal responsibility.
