About the department

The department of orthopaedic rehabilitation at Rehabilitation Centre Benedictus Feldafing specializes in the entire spectrum of orthopaedic rehabilitation, for example, after joint replacement, shoulder revisions or operations on the spine. According to Focus Magazine, the department is among the best departments in Germany that provide rehabilitation therapy. A team of doctors, nurses and therapists intensively care for patients at all stages of their recovery process. Rehabilitation in the department is characterized by a large number of individual therapies and ensures a successful and fast rehabilitation. Important stages of treatment are discussed and agreed upon with the patient's operating doctor, so further care is tailored individually. The most modern therapeutic devices are available in the department, such as a large sports pool with warm water and sports equipment. Highly qualified doctors and caring medical staff provide patients with the most comfortable stay in the hospital.

The basis of the orthopaedic rehabilitation department is physiotherapy, which includes electrotherapy, heat therapy and other highly effective physiotherapy procedures. Manual therapy is also provided to restore patient mobility and relieve pain. The combination of conventional rehabilitation and modern robotic equipment ensures a successful outcome. In addition, hydrotherapy can be used for patients with back diseases, fractures and soft tissue injuries.
