About the department

The department of neurological rehabilitation at Rehabilitation Clinic Schmieder Gailingen specializes in the rehabilitation of patients with chronic central and peripheral nervous system disorders. The department's medical team primarily treats patients at the stage of neurological rehabilitation C, D, and E. The department consists of an interdisciplinary team of doctors, psychologists and therapists that analyses the type and cause of the illness and creates a tailor-made therapy plan to compile the individual life history, world of thoughts and feelings of the patient, and social context into account. More than 3,000 patients undergo rehabilitation in the department annually. 

The department's focus key is to treat multiple sclerosis. Since 2015, the department has been certified by the German Multiple Sclerosis Society, which has awarded the clinic the status of a "rehabilitation centre for multiple sclerosis". For over 20 years, the department has had a unit of Psychotherapeutic Neurology, which offers patients a complex of medical and psychotherapeutic treatment methods. In addition, the department offers special conditions for medical-vocational rehabilitation with a modern workshop and office space.
