About the department
The Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Hoppegarten offers the full range of modern therapies for the rehabilitation of patients after various injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The department's rehabilitation therapists most often deal with the treatment patients suffering from injuries and diseases of the spine, small and large joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. The department often admits patients with chronic diseases, sports and occupational injuries, as well as injuries after road traffic accidents and those who need to restore mobility after spinal surgery, joint replacement surgery, etc. Depending on the severity of the clinical case, the treatment can be either inpatient or outpatient. The department has 245 beds for patient hospitalization. Each patient benefits from an individual rehabilitation program aimed at achieving maximum independence, reintegration into social and everyday life. Throughout the entire period of stay in the clinic, the patients are under close medical supervision and receive high-quality nursing care. The department is headed by Dr. med. Matthias Krause.
One of the most effective ways to improve mobility is properly selected physical activity. During the rehabilitation, many patients learn movements lost due to diseases and injuries almost from the very beginning. The main task of the specialists is to return the patient to his usual life by improving his physical endurance, training endurance to sedentary work, as well as improving concentration, reaction and coordination. The regular daily activities and the constant repetition of certain movements within the framework of occupational therapy have an especially important effect on the patient's rehabilitation process. The department's doctors encourage the initiative and involvement of relatives in the therapeutic process, since it is very important for a person undergoing rehabilitation to feel support from his close ones. Such an approach ensures a beneficial effect on the psychological state and the result of therapy.
The department quite often conducts rehabilitation for people of working age. It is important for them not only to restore mobility and self-care skills, but also to return to their professional life. An integral part of the rehabilitation treatment for such patients is medical profession-oriented rehabilitation. In most cases, to restore lost professional skills, the doctors use special computer programs or an imitation of a workplace at a table for patients whose specialty involves working in an office. All the therapeutic measures are individually coordinated with the patient based on the analysis of the load that a person experiences at the workplace during the work process. Such a therapy improves physical endurance in the workplace, tests and trains endurance for long periods of sedentary work, improves the ability to concentrate and react quickly, stabilizes and improves hand, eye and leg coordination, etc.
During the treatment, special attention is paid to the proper nutrition of patients, since injuries disrupt metabolism, which makes many patients less active and prone to obesity. A highly qualified nutritionist works individually with each patient. The specialist holds consultations on the appropriate nutrition and, if necessary, elaborates an optimal diet with due consideration of particular clinical indications. During the rehabilitation, many patients also adjust their lifestyle and eating habits, which has a beneficial effect on the state of the body as a whole.
The training on innovative professional exercise equipment also contributes to the successful rehabilitation outcome. Special attention should be given to the advanced Milon exercise machine, which is widely used in the department's clinical practice. Milon allows the person to significantly reduce training time without losing efficiency. The purpose of training on this exercise equipment is to build muscle mass in order to support the entire musculoskeletal system. While exercising, the computer system records all the health indicators of the patient's body, which allows the doctors to assess the effectiveness of training, adjust the intensity of the exercise and achieve the most effective result.
