About the department
The Department of Orthopedic Rehabilitation at the Rehabilitation Clinic Schlossberg Bad Liebenzell offers the full range of therapeutic and recovery procedures for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. The competence of the department's specialists also includes rehabilitation of patients after surgical interventions on the joints, spine, limb amputation, etc. All rehabilitation measures provided in the department are aimed at the rapid restoration of the patient's mobility and self-care ability. In appropriate clinical cases, one of the primary goals of orthopedic rehabilitation is also the patient's reintegration into his professional life. Each patient is provided with an individual rehabilitation program, which is elaborated taking into account a particular disease and its peculiar features, the patient's age and other important factors.The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Markus Wiedemann.
Upon admission to the clinic, the patient is provided with a comprehensive consultation, during which the doctor receives the necessary information from the patient regarding his clinical case, studies his anamnesis and carries out a clinical examination. The next step is the appointment of a complex of diagnostic tests for the patient. These diagnostic examinations will allow orthopedists and rehabilitation therapists to assess the patient's health, the functioning of the musculoskeletal system, psychological state and other important indicators. All the necessary examinations are carried out in the department's modern diagnostic rooms with the latest technologies. In most cases, prior to the appointment of a rehabilitation program, the patient undergoes various laboratory tests, electrocardiography, ultrasound scanning, radiography, etc. According to the diagnostic results obtained, the doctors determine the goals of rehabilitation, for the achievement of which they develop an individual stage-by-stage program of rehabilitation treatment. The duration and intensity of the rehabilitation measures depend on the complexity of the clinical case. The rehabilitation procedures can be provided both individually and in groups – the attending physician decides on the optimal training model.
Such methods as physiotherapy, ergotherapy, therapeutic exercises, massage, hydrotherapy and diet therapy are mandatory treatments of any rehabilitation program. All procedures are carried out under the strict supervision of professionals in their field, who control the correctness of the exercise, set an adequate intensity of training, motivate the patient and monitor his progress. The specialists competently combine all the available therapeutic options in order to guarantee the patient freedom of movements without pain.
Psychological care is an integral part of orthopedic rehabilitation as well. In most cases, psychologists work with each patient individually, but group therapy can also be provided. At the initial stage of work with the patient, the psychologist helps him to accept his disease and instills confidence in the successful outcome of rehabilitation, which strongly motivates the patient on his way to recovery. The specialist then teaches the patient some relaxation and stress management techniques. Special attention is also paid to the fight against bad habits – smoking, alcohol abuse. If necessary, psychologists also provide assistance to the patient's relatives and close ones.
