About the Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Hohenfeld Bad Camberg
The Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Hohenfeld Bad Camberg offers highly effective medical rehabilitation for patients with pathologies of the musculoskeletal system, including especially severe ones. The department's specialists provide rehabilitation for patients after joint replacement surgery, spinal surgery and limb amputation. The department also regularly deals with the treatment of patients suffering from chronic pain, for example, chronic pain in the back or joints. The department is headed by Dr. med. Nadja Breijawi.
Medical care in the department is based on an individual approach to each patient, which contributes to achieving the best result – 99% of patients restore mobility after rehabilitation, while 85% of patients get rid of pain. The medical facility offers inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs. Much attention is paid to the training of patients, so that they can continue their rehabilitation activities at home upon completion of treatment in the clinic.
The only effective method of restoring mobility after an orthopedic disease or intervention on the musculoskeletal system is regular dosed physical activity. Many patients regain their gross motor skills and learn to walk, so they require individual training with rehabilitation therapists who monitor proper movement performance, motivate the patients and, if necessary, adjust the intensity of the exercises. Occupational therapy is also an integral part of rehabilitation, as it helps the patient to restore self-care skills – personal hygiene, dressing, eating, etc. The department's competent nutrition specialists hold nutrition counseling, during which they tell patients about a healthy diet, which will help prevent metabolic disorders and obesity, since orthopedic diseases often lead to decreased physical activity. Whenever required, the patients receive professional psychological care.
The patients of working age are offered medical profession-oriented rehabilitation, the main goal of which is to restore professional skills, train endurance and self-control. The patients working in the office train at a specially equipped work desk, which simulates an office workplace. The restoration of work capacity is achieved by performing the same actions at the desk and gradually increasing the load. When restoring professional skills in patients with professions that imply work in a factory, construction site, production, etc., the doctors use modern computer programs, which simulate the work process by setting a certain complex of tasks for a person.
