After your operation, our physiotherapy and massage specialists are at your disposal. The aim is to support the healing process effectively. Physio techniques help to heal impairments of the musculoskeletal system, alleviate damage to the nervous system and diseases of the internal organs. But physical and occupational therapy measures also support the treatment of psychological problems. In other words, across all disciplines, physiotherapy and occupational therapy make an important contribution to healing – of course always depending on the condition of the individual patient.
The ultimate goal is to promote recovery and restore health. First and foremost, occupational therapists support patients in regaining or maintaining the greatest possible independence in everyday life, school and work. If this is not one hundred per cent possible, physiotherapists and occupational therapists support and advise those affected and their relatives in dealing with new life situations in the best possible way.
The professional nursing team is at your disposal around the clock. Individual wishes are gladly fulfilled in order to work together towards a quick recovery. Emergency facilities in the room guarantee medical care around the clock.
In addition to the medical services provided by Privatklinik Ritzensee, physiotherapy treatments are available after operations to support healing during the inpatient stay. Chaplains are also available upon request.
Accompanying persons can stay overnight in the patient’s room on request.
