About the department

The neurological rehabilitation department at Rehabilitation Clinic Schmieder Konstanz offers a full range of neurological rehabilitation services for patients with chronic central and peripheral nervous system diseases. First of all, doctors treat patients at the stages of neurological rehabilitation C, D, and E. Since 2006, the department has been certified by the German Society for Multiple Sclerosis as a "Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Center", which confirms the many years of experience of doctors, therapists and nurses. Also, for more than 30 years, the department has had a particular unit to treat concomitant neurological and mental disorders. An interdisciplinary team of medical social workers, psychologists and therapists analyses the type and cause of the disease and creates a personalised treatment plan that considers the individual's life history, the patient's thoughts and feelings, and the social context.

The main clinical areas of the department are rehabilitation after multiple sclerosis, stroke, and muscle diseases. Particular attention is paid to pain therapy and dissociative disorders. Patients receive a balanced range of physiotherapy, ergotherapy, sports therapy, neuropsychological and psychotherapy offerings. In addition, the department offers rehabilitation after Covid-19.
