The Department of Pediatric Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the Rehabilitation Clinic Bavaria Zscheckwitz Kreischa offers the comprehensive rehabilitation programs for children and adolescents with chronic diseases of the skeleton and musculoskeletal system, as well as with acute orthopedic diseases and injuries. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Dirk Heinicke.
Parents are actively involved in the treatment process. Each patient receives an individual treatment regimen, which aims to completely eliminate or reduce as much as possible functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. The department’s specialists have rich clinical experience and excellent technical base to achieve the best results in young patients.
The department’s field of competence also includes rehabilitation care for children and adolescents with orthopedic disorders due to rheumatic joint injuries. In this case, the focus is on maintaining and improving joint mobility and preventing its deformation. The rehabilitation measures are supplemented by drug therapy, which affects the immunological links in the pathogenesis of joint lesion, and also eliminates pain.
It is worth noting that special attention in the treatment process is paid to the psychological support of patients and their parents. The ultimate goal of rehabilitation measures is not only the best possible recovery of the child’s mobility, but also his reintegration into normal everyday life – kindergarten, school, higher education institution.
