About the hospital

VAMED Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic Schloss Pulsnitz has extensive experience in the patient's early recovery, rapid reduction of acute symptoms, and intensive therapy. The history of development of rehabilitation care began in Pulsnitz Castle in 1947 with the pulmonary sanatorium. Later, thanks to its development and popularity, the clinic became a modern advanced health center with a neurological and neurosurgical direction with an outpatient type of care.

168 places provide access to medical services for everyone and serve almost 3,000 patients a year. Since 2020, the VAMED Outpatient Rehabilitation Clinic Schloss in Pulsnitz has been a DMSG-certified rehabilitation center for patients with multiple sclerosis.

For post-stroke patients, multicomponent rehabilitation therapy is available to help restore lost function and reduce disability. Occupational therapy and art therapy contribute to the improvement of psychological well-being and the restoration of independent living skills. Also, sports therapy offers various types of employment and involvement of patients in an active lifestyle. Archery, rock climbing and water training, bicycle ergometry, and nordic walking help patients understand sports not as a forced part but as a hobby and an exciting recreation. This approach promotes a more athletic lifestyle outside of therapy. Increasing healing and reducing tension in the body is achieved through massages, electrotherapy, hydro-electrophysiotherapy, and heat programs (fango, red light). The clinic departments are equipped with various gait rehabilitation equipment (gait trainer and treadmill with unloading) and specially trained therapeutic horses, taking into account the main profile of the rehabilitation direction. Riding stimulates the motor impulses that form the "I go" information by absorbing the impulse through the pelvis to the brain. Reorganization of the brain and regulation of muscle tension has high results and numerous positive feedback from patients. For greater self-confidence of patients, doctors also offer speech therapy courses to improve pronunciation, increase voice volume and reduce swallowing disorders. Music therapy is one of the ways to improve speech function, and it has been incredibly effective in combating stuttering. The Pulsnitz VAMED Outpatient Rehabilitation Center Schloss also provides care for patients with severe head injuries and provides adequate care for mechanical ventilation and tube feeding. Also, detailed analysis and rehabilitation contribute to the earliest return to independent nutrition and breathing.

Patients with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's, brain tumors, and skull injuries can receive proper care and restore body functions. Rehabilitation specialists also work with speech disorders, complex patients in intensive care, and neurosurgical operations. A complex individual approach ensures proper attention to each case and high satisfaction with treatment.

Over time, needs change, and the hospital's structure currently consists of neurological and neurosurgical rehabilitation and intensive and speech therapy.
