About the department

The Department of Neurological Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Sülze offers comprehensive rehabilitation for patients who have suffered various diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, including particularly complex types of neuropathology. Each patient is provided with an individually tailored rehabilitation program with clearly defined goals that he must achieve upon treatment completion. The department's experienced rehabilitation therapists combine such modern therapeutic methods as drug therapy, therapeutic exercises, kinesiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychotherapy and others. The most important role in the success of rehabilitation is played by the regularity of the performance of therapeutic procedures. During the entire period of rehabilitation treatment, the patients are under close medical supervision. The department's specialists motivate patients and support them on their way to recovery. The main task of the rehabilitation therapists is to restore the lost functions and skills of the patients to achieve their maximum independence in everyday life. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Cornelia Müller.

Upon admission to the department, the patient must undergo a set of diagnostic tests, which will help the attending physician assess the state of his nervous system and the body. The department's diagnostic options include electroencephalography, electromyography, electroneurography, recording of evoked potentials, transcranial magnetic stimulation, assessment of brain stem reflexes, color vascular Doppler sonography, duplex sonography, tests for detection of speech, swallowing and voice disorders, laboratory tests, etc. After studying the patient's medical history and the results of diagnostic tests, rehabilitation therapists develop a rehabilitation program, which allows the patient to recover the lost skills as much as possible. It is worth noting that during medical rehabilitation, many patients manage not only to get rid of the consequences of neurological disease, but also to improve their health in general, form proper eating and behavioral habits, cope with depressive states caused by pathology, etc.

As of today, stroke is one of the most common and life-threatening nervous system pathologies. Stroke often causes speech, swallowing and voice disorders, so classes with a speech therapist are an important part of the rehabilitation program for these patients. Since 2005, the highly-specialized Aphasia Center of regional significance has been functioning in the department. The center's specialists not only provide high-quality medical care to patients who have completely or partially lost their speech skills after a stroke, but also hold consultations for patients' relatives. The team of the department's speech therapists successfully copes with aphasia and other complex disorders, including apraxia of speech, dysarthrophonia, dysphagia, dysphonia, etc. In addition to individual sessions with a speech therapist and group therapy, special computer programs are successfully used in clinical practice.

Another complication of neurological diseases is an impairment of the large and fine motor skills of the arm and hand, which significantly impairs the patient's quality of life. In this regard, patients undergoing neurological rehabilitation are offered a special program to restore the functions of the arm and hand. The program is aimed at reintegration of the patient into everyday and professional life. During this type of medical rehabilitation, the department uses the innovative HandTutor system – a special device that is an electronic glove connected to a computer. Motor skill recovery occurs through repetitive exercises combined with extended feedback demonstrating the condition of the monitored function on the screen. The exercises are based on game models, which particularly motivates patients and stimulates them to perform the tasks repeatedly. Mirror therapy is also successfully used to restore gross and fine motor skills in the hand.

To restore mobility, gait, eliminate spasticity and improve the patient's well-being, the department's rehabilitation therapists prescribe dosed physical activity in the form of physiotherapy exercises, Nordic walking, training on professional simulators (for example, MILON), etc. The department's therapeutic options are complemented by various types of massage, manual lymphatic drainage, inhalation therapy, mud therapy, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, thermotherapy, diet therapy and other types of rehabilitation treatment. If necessary, psychologists are involved in the therapeutic process, whose work is aimed at increasing the motivation of patients and forming an attitude toward a favorable treatment outcome.
