Physical Medicine

The Institute for Physical Medicine offers a comprehensive range of treatments for pain therapy and prevention, mobility problems, and for rehabilitation.

An individually designed treatment program will be developed for you as prescribed by your attending doctor using targeted diagnostics.

Manual procedures and therapeutic exercises are used to treat painful joints with impaired mobility, and musculoskeletal problems, as well as after surgery. Massage, magnetic field, mud and heat treatments, and electrotherapy promote healing.

Following joint replacement surgery, a comprehensive exercise program is provided, which ends with preparing you for discharge from the hospital, with any mobility aids you may need.

To treat involuntary urine leakage, we offer a multi-step training program, consisting of counseling, therapeutic exercises, and in some cases electrostimulation of the pelvic floor.

Following surgical removal of a breast carcinoma, targeted advice, physiotherapy, and manual lymph drainage helps to prevent lymphedema. Laser treatment in parallel with intravenous chemotherapy limits inflammatory distortion of the veins.

Our aim is to enable you to carry out your day-to-day activities as safely, independently and free from pain as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: Outpatient physiotherapy (Prenatal exercises and Rehabilitation exercises) is SUSPENDED until further notice.
