About the hospital

VAMED Rehabilitation Clinic Bad Ems is a private specialized orthopedic rehabilitation clinic located since 2010 in one of the most picturesque areas of the Lahn Valley. Bad Ems is on the UNESCO list and has received the highest international award for cultural sites. In addition, the rehabilitation center acquired the VPKSH quality mark and is a member of the premium class of the national portal Qualitä

The rehabilitation center serves patients after implantation of endoprostheses, fractures of limbs, bones of the pelvis, and spine and spine surgery, as well as degenerative diseases of peripheral joints and disc diseases and inflammatory and metabolic diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Treatment takes place in a specially equipped building with ramps, elevators, and comfortable wards with 145 beds.

Doctors provide remedies through basic physiotherapy techniques and combine various approaches. Manual therapy and lymphatic drainage, massages, heat application, and cryotherapy improve local circulation and reduce inflammation. Electrotherapy and ultrasound activate metabolic processes in the body, eliminate acute pain and normalize muscle tone. Impulse currents expand blood vessels and provide a neurostimulation effect. For fractures, orthopedists have extensive experience in extension treatment by gradually pulling out the affected area for better fracture alignment and restoration of joint movement. Bobat therapy is also used to achieve three goals: inhibiting unnatural postures and movements, strengthening regular (correct) movements, and using tactile and kinesthetic stimuli, thanks to which the patient perceives and learns correct movements. In addition, the clinic has a wide selection of exercise equipment such as MOTOMED and cycle ergometers for the upper body and treadmill. Trainers provide an individual approach and correct performance of repetitive exercises. Group arthroplasty classes, orthopedic back school, and arthroplasty groups allow for the exchange of experience between patients and contribute to greater motivation, diversifying therapy.

In addition to classic rehabilitation, doctors provide nutrition counseling services, namely whole nutrition, food intolerance (lactose intolerance, allergy, gluten enteropathy), and special diets related to diseases (dialysis, chronic renal failure, dyslipidemia, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity, heart disease). Furthermore, the psychological direction is aimed at relaxation exercises (autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation) and lectures on the psychological aspects of pain, stress management, and smoking cessation.
