Ergotherapy

Services

Ergotherapy serves the maintenance, improvement or compensation of motor, physical and social capabilities. For this, our therapists work according to the treatment requirements and everyday needs.

In addition to practical everyday activities, motor skills, craft skills and recreational processes are used as therapeutic measures. Our ergotherapeutic concept also includes support, supply and training with aids and splints.

In particular, we help patients with fractures, tendon injuries, chronic polyarthritis or complex regional pain syndrome. Our main areas of treatment also include treatment of people with Dupuytren's contraction, with nerve lesions and sensitivity disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, apoplexy or also after amputations.
