Neurological Rehabilitation and Early Rehabilitation
Enjoying little steps forward. Bringing the person we love and miss back to consciousness, step-by-step. Medically securing the current status. Assuaging fears. Regaining quality of life. All of these are the goals of the neurological early rehabilitation of our patients with severe damage to the nervous system and their relatives. And these goals will be reached the earlier therapy is started.
Since different areas of the brain can be affected depending on the patient and illness, the respective effects also vary: Thus, the limitations can be in the physical, psychological and/or social areas. To precisely diagnose and treat all limitations, our employees cooperate consistently and comprehensively. That is our central treatment concept for patients with damage to the nervous system.
Being able to sit, stand and walk again: The early mobilisation of our patients is one of our most important concepts. Due to our complex and comprehensive movement program, the movement processes stored in the nerve cells in the brain that were disrupted by the illness are activated and stimulated. We rely, in particular, on the expert knowledge of our many therapists, all for the benefit of our patients. Early mobilisation also has a positive effect on your entire organism: By moving, complications due to lying down for a long time are avoided, for instance, the reduction of musculature and tendons as well as muscle and bone degradation. At the same tie, breathing is trained and deepened which prevents respiratory tract infections.
About a third of our patients come to us at the clinic with severe respiratory and swallowing disorders. We therefore pay special attention to breathing and swallowing therapy. For many of our patients, this initially means weaning off of a tracheal cannula which was introduced by an external hospital via a tracheotomy to secure the respiratory tracts. We do everything we can to ensure our patients are able to breathe, swallow and speak independently again.
