About the Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Sülze

The Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Sülze offers all modern types of medical rehabilitation to the patients who have suffered musculoskeletal diseases and injuries, as well as rheumatic diseases. The patients are often admitted to the department after joint replacement surgery, spinal surgery and limb amputation. The department's rehabilitation therapists have vast experience in the treatment of chronic back and joint pain. The primary goal of the specialists during orthopedic rehabilitation is to eliminate pain, restore mobility and achieve maximum independence of the patient in everyday life. The young patients are also offered medical profession-oriented rehabilitation, which aims to reintegrate the patient into his professional environment. This type of rehabilitation treatment is preceded by a special examination, which allows for the assessment of the patient's rehabilitation potential. The department is headed by Dr. med. Emilian Mladenov.

Prior to appointing some therapeutic procedures, the rehabilitation therapists carry out comprehensive diagnostics to assess the severity of damage to the musculoskeletal system, movement functions and general health of the patient. For this purpose, the department has in-house diagnostic rooms with state-of-the-art equipment. The patients often undergo such diagnostic tests as ultrasound and X-ray scanning, electrophysiological testing, electrocardiography, isokinetic muscle testing, psychological testing, etc. The diagnostic results allow the department's specialists to develop the most effective rehabilitation program and eliminate any risks to the patient's health. In addition, the patients also regularly undergo diagnostic examinations during the rehabilitation in order to monitor the effectiveness of treatment

The complex of rehabilitation measures is selected individually, but the rehabilitation treatment is usually based on dosed physical activity. In addition to therapeutic exercises, the patients are offered sports therapy, medical training therapy, Nordic walking, training on professional exercise equipment (for example, MILON), water aerobics, etc. Training often takes place in groups, since it is important for many patients to understand that their case is not unique, and there are other people with the same diseases. An integral part of rehabilitation is physiotherapy: classic massage, manual lymphatic drainage, electrotherapy, thermotherapy and other types of treatment. An obligatory component of the rehabilitation process is diet therapy, since the patients with musculoskeletal diseases and injuries lead a sedentary lifestyle, which can cause weight gain. In addition, the importance of psychological support provided to the patients by the department's competent psychologists should not be underestimated. The patients with orthopedic diseases often suffer from depression and lose faith that they will be able to return to their previous life, so the task of psychologists is to help them cope with the pathology and motivate the patient for a favorable treatment outcome.
