Neurological rehabilitation often deals with the effects of serious illnesses, where everything you once took for granted is transformed into a series of new challenges.
Re-establishing functional health
Strengthening abilities – compensating for deficiencies
Employing a wide spectrum of therapies and special training procedures, we work with the brain's ability to continuously reorganise itself. This ability is known as neuroplasticity and allows us to treat functional restrictions such as paralysis, sensory disorders and deteriorations in brain function. Existing abilities are trained, and skills that have been lost are replaced in full or in part, or compensated for by others. Our therapeutic work doesn't just deal with the physiological processes, but also the individual psychological and social effects of the illness.
Regaining skills that are taken for granted
We use special training procedures to train existing abilities, to replace skills that have been lost in full or in part, or to compensate them through others.
Trust and continuity
Our team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and sports therapists begins mobilising the patient as soon as possible. Within our multidisciplinary approach involving doctors, carers and various different types of therapy, we set out individual rehabilitation goals for each patient, along with a therapy plan and a system of measuring progress, and adjust them accordingly as the treatment progresses.
We predominantly carry out individual therapies, supplemented by regular and frequent group therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy treatments. Trust and continuity in the relationship between patients and therapists is very important for ensuring sustained success.
Good results, more quickly
A positive and pleasant atmosphere also has an effect on the rehabilitation process. For that reason we carry out our treatments in peaceful, cheerful and specially designed rooms, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.
When treating severely affected patients, we work with closely coordinated therapy teams, sometimes carrying out treatments with physiotherapists or occupational therapists at the same time. In this way, we can accelerate the mobilisation process, see results in a shorter space of time and mobilise patients at a very early stage.
The integrated therapy forum that we have developed ensures extensive combination therapy for each individual. We incorporate an interdisciplinary team of therapists and a group of nursing staff in order to facilitate the best possible sequence of therapies for the most severely affected patients, without their treatments being interrupted by transfer times.
