Occupational therapy /

for adults and seniors

In addition to pediatrics, we also treat adults and seniors from the specialties of neurology, orthopedics, surgery, rheumatology and geriatrics. For this purpose, trained specialists who have undergone further training are available for our patients.

Occupational therapy in neurology

Occupational therapy treats diseases affecting the central nervous system (e.g. after apoplexy, Parkinson's disease, craniocerebral trauma, multiple sclerosis, etc.).

Due to the damage to certain bodily functions, the affected person experiences impairments in his or her activities and participation in social life.

  • Damage to movement functions
    e. E.g.: balance, coordination, gross and fine motor skills, spasticity, hemiparesis
  • Damage to sensory functions
    ex. B.: Body perception, sensitivity, proprioception, visual field.
  • Damage to mental functions
    ex. B.: Concentration, attention, retentiveness

These complex disturbance patterns usually regress very slowly and rarely completely.

The overriding goal of occupational therapy is to regain a lost ability to act as far as possible and thus to achieve the greatest possible independence in the patient's everyday life.

  • Brain Performance Training
  • Treatment according to the Bobath concept
  • Contracture prophylaxis
  • Training of daily living skills (ADL training)
  • Training of the non-affected side and learning of substitute functions
  • Perception training

Occupational therapy in orthopedics / surgery / rheumatology

n this specialty, patients of all ages are treated after surgery, amputations, accidents, injuries and / or degenerative diseases, mainly of the upper extremity. e.g.

  • Injuries, fractures and operations in the area of the upper extremities
  • Contractures / scars
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Arthrosis / Arthritis
  • rheumatic diseases

The goal of occupational therapy is to restore mobility, reduce pain, strengthen muscles, and train dexterity and coordination of both hands and individual fingers.

  • Heat and cold treatments with various materials
  • Strength and movement training
  • Scar massage
  • Hand Therapy
  • Kerosene bath
  • Sensitivity training

Occupational therapy in geriatrics

Occupational therapy in geriatrics is determined by diseases that are subject to the aging process.

The typical clinical pictures are:

  • Neurological diseases
    (e.g. stroke, Parkinson's disease, sclerosis)
  • dementia
    (e.g. Alzheimer's disease)
  • degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system
    (e.g. osteoarthritis)
  • mental illness
    (e.g. depression)
  • Condition after fractures, amputations and tumor removal

Due to age-related physiological functional limitations, multiple illnesses, acute and chronic diseases and external circumstances, the elderly person is often in an unstable health balance. Each additional illness is an enormous psychological, physical and social burden.

The goal of occupational therapy is to train and rebuild lost skills and to strengthen and maintain existing resources.

  • Promotion of motor-functional skills (e.g. training of fine motor skills,
  • Strengthening of the musculature, training of the balance)
  • Activation of cognitive and neuropsychological abilities (e.g. to improve orientation, communication).
  • Auxiliary means supply
  • Guidance for self-help with eating, drinking, dressing and undressing, personal hygiene
    (e.g. ADL- training)
