VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Berleburg
About the hospital
The VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Berleburg combines the former buildings of the Baumrain Clinic, Odeborn Clinic, and Rothaar Clinic. The oldest building was used by visitors to the resort and bathing about 60 years ago.
More than 4,200 patients visit the clinic annually. Treatment takes place in "Haus Odeborn" and "Haus Rothaar". The wards are designed for single and double rooms and have 530 seats. In addition, spacious corridors and living rooms, as well as numerous elevators, facilitate access to therapy areas and dining rooms. For its contribution to the development of quality medicine, the clinic received the DEGEMED certificate of the German Medical Rehabilitation Society and is one of the best rehabilitation centers in Germany, according to Focus magazine in 2022 and many before.
The multidisciplinary team provides a wide range of diagnostic services in the form of EEG, EMG/ENG, neuro tests, perimetry, X-ray, spiral CT, dopplerography, CW and duplex sonography, transcranial dopplerography, EKG, ultrasound of the abdominal cavity, echocardiography, endoscopic diagnosis of swallowing and sleep apnea screening. After a detailed study of the body's disorders, doctors develop a detailed course of treatment. Applying classical treatment methods and introducing innovative technological possibilities are the strengths of the VAMED Rehabilitation Center in Bad Berleburg. For example, the Lokomat robot uses a treadmill and an exoskeleton that is worn on the legs and allows for improvement and development of the gait. The unique technique allowed the achievement of significant patient results thanks to detailed analysis of progress and modification of exercises by needs. A speech therapy service is also available for patients with a neurological speech disorder, dysarthria, voice disorder, and dysphagia. Fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation (FEES) is used to assess the degree of dysphagia by inserting a thin, flexible instrument through the nose with a view of the throat. Particular UV therapy (UVA, SUP, 311n, PUVA) can reduce the manifestations of atopic dermatitis/neurodermatitis or psoriasis. In addition, craniosacral and fascial therapy, acupressure, electrotherapy, and foot reflexology are used to reduce pain, relieve local tension, and increase the range of motion in the affected areas. Occupational therapy includes Perfetti and the Bobat method, manual therapy, and PNF, which increase the patient's independence in all daily life. Dietary counseling, in addition to the classic option, includes cooking according to new recipes and is available in 3 directions - orthopedics, neurology, and patients with eating disorders.
Prevention of diseases, improvement of personal life situation, preservation of working capacity, and prevention of the constant need for care are at the center of attention. Therefore, doctors offer rehabilitation for orthopedics, neurology (polyneuritis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, polyneuropathy, spastic spinal palsy and other diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system and others), psychosomatics, psychotherapy, and psychiatric rehabilitation (schizophrenic psychoses, bipolar disorders, depression, anxiety disorders, panic attacks, phobias, schizoaffective disorders), as well as hearing disorders, tinnitus, and dizziness.
Should I choose the сдштшс for the treatment of eating disorders?
Dietitians collaborate with psychotherapists to study the cause of the disease in detail and eliminate its consequences. Laboratory tests, endoscopic and ultrasound imaging make it possible to ascertain the psychological nature of the disease and individually consider all the possibilities of therapy.
Is skin treatment available at VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Berleburg?
Joint treatment in the dermatological and psychological direction reduces the manifestations of itch. Medical intervention, ultraviolet radiation, and stress reduction stabilize local immunity and reduce the release of itch-provoking substances at the cellular level.
Is the medical center suitable for treating people after a stroke?
A hospital is a good place for post-stroke treatment, thanks to the Lokomat robot, which puts people on their feet. In addition, recovery of affected neurons is possible thanks to occupational therapy. Special training of relatives in caring for the sick also increases the percentage of a better recovery.
Why is the clinic considered one of the best in Germany?
The German Medical Rehabilitation Society and Focus magazine evaluated the rehabilitation center on quality, treatment, safety, and variety of services. The high evaluation of all points led to the further certification of the clinic and recognition as one of the best in rehabilitation.
About the city
Bad Berleburg is the heart of Wittgenstein's land, with a population of 19,500. Picturesque views open to the Rothaar mountains, the Odeborn valley slopes, and the Eder tributaries. For the first time, the city was mentioned in documents back in 1174, and since then, it has been steadily developing and gaining popularity.
In 1605, Bad Berleburg became the capital and royal seat of the northern county of Sein-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, which was the center of the radical Pietist movement in Germany in the 18th century. Berleburg Castle, a complex with a prominent building in the Baroque style from 1733, has become a museum of the history of this era. The castle is one of the few in Germany inhabited by the same family for more than 750 years. In addition, the town has preserved its historical appearance, which can be seen during a walk through the romantic streets. Half-timbered houses, churches, and numerous monuments are found at every turn. Various shooting festivals and winter Christmas fairs are held annually in almost all districts.
Since 1935, the city has been recognized as a resort due to its mild climate. Therefore, the development of medical tourism in treating and rehabilitating psychosomatics, neurological diseases, and orthopedic diseases began gradually. Thanks to Helios' investment, the VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Altona Hamburg was opened, providing high-quality services and taking over many years of experience from a leading network. According to Sebastian Kneip, the clinic adheres to the holistic concept of health, which includes five elements: water, exercise, nutrition, medicinal plants, and balance. The immune system is effectively strengthened, and self-healing capacity is stimulated. Kneipp made a significant contribution to the development of health care in Germany and is highly respected today.
The diverse nature of Bad Berleburg, the development of recreational areas, and the cozy atmosphere of the chamber city make it popular for family recreation and wellness, even among young people. The high principles of a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition impress tourists from all over the world.
