1. Step: Identifying your back pain
We start the search for clues even before your first visit to us. The central question is: Where can we find the cause of your back pain? Your complaints are systematically recorded every day through a special questionnaire, which is the basis and an important component of the diagnostic puzzle. Surveys, physical and imaging examinations as well as special functional tests up to diagnostic injections can all provide crucial information.
If you have questions, our employees are ready to help you.
In the course of your treatment pathway, we’ll focus intensively on your personal challenges and requirements.We consider this custom therapy direction as an important part of long-term successful treatment at Schoen Clinic.
2. Step: thorough initial examination by experts
When you're sitting across from your doctor for the first time, they have already formed a picture of your problems based on existing findings. This gives them more time to talk to you. They’ll conduct various tests and exercises in a thorough examination to get to the root of what’s causing your pain in a targeted manner. This consultant will be your central point of contact for the duration of your entire treatment. They will be your guide in your recovery process all the way up to after-care.
3. Step: state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures
Sometimes it’s easy to identity the source of pain in back problems. More often, however, accompanying examinations are needed, such as a 4D mapping of the spine, exact strength measurements, checking bone density, laboratory diagnostics and manual tests. These provide the treating physician with important information.
All necessary examinations are conducted at our site at the Back Institute so that you can get a confirmed diagnosis as quickly as possible. Thanks to the short distance, no information gets lost and you don’t have to wait unnecessarily.
4. Step: Case conference – all departments at one table
If your examination results do not provide a consistent or coherent picture, we will seek the opinions of our entire team of consultants. Generally all experts from the fields involved sit down together. They discuss the findings that are posing a conundrum. The first diagnosis and a treatment concept specifically tailored to you are generally ready by the end.
