Specialists in your chronic condition

Personalised Parkinson's treatment for a better quality of life

Slow movements, uncontrolled shaking and muscle stiffness are just three of the most well-known symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Over time, the condition can cause a variety of problems. These generally create a major challenge for you and your relatives. Our experts in neurology work with you to devise a personalised treatment plan. Here, consultants, therapists and care providers work hand in hand with you.

Great expertise in gait disorders

We have particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of gait disorders. We know that constantly feeling unsteady while walking - sometimes with repeated falls - can be very burdensome. The causes of gait disorders are many and varied. Examples include polyneuropathy, circulatory disorders of the brain and fear of falling. In our gait laboratory, we use a sensor rug, a multi-camera system and an equilibrium plate to document the difficulties you are experiencing while walking. Based on these results, we arrive at a diagnosis and monitor the success of your treatment.

Our sleep laboratory

On the trail of your sleep disorders

We are the only DGSM (German Society of Sleep Medicine)-certified sleep laboratory in the Rosenheim-Munich-Garmisch regional triangle. With four beds and technical equipment that guarantees you the best comfort and freedom of movement, we get to the bottom of your sleep problems. Our aim is to detect any organic causes for your sleep disturbance, and to obtain an objective picture of the extent of your problems.

Sleep is vital

Around 20 per cent of people over the age of 20 suffer with problems sleeping. In the over-70s, this number is more than 50 per cent. The consequences of disturbed sleep are many and should never be underestimated. Increased fatigue during the day, reduced performance and an increased risk of accidents while driving are just some examples.

Sleep disorders that you must seek medical advice about

Symptoms

Action required

Snoring at night with pauses in breathing, a feeling of exhaustion during the day, eyes closing while driving

Since these symptoms could represent sleep apnoea, you should consult your GP.

Difficulty falling and staying asleep, compensation with long afternoon snoozes

Improvement in sleep by shortening the time spent in bed, rules for healthy sleep

The feeling that your legs are restless at night, making sleep almost impossible.

This may be restless legs syndrome. Consult your GP or a neurologist.

  • Sleep apnoea: nightly pauses in breathing and snoring, including CPAP therapy (sleep mask)
