Expertise

The Leukerbad Clinic has been renowned and acknowledged since 1961 as a cutting-edge medical centre dedicated to rehabilitation of the locomotor system, particularly after an operation or trauma, as well as in cases of chronic degenerative or inflammatory diseases.

 

Musculoskeletal rehabilitation is a medical speciality intended for patients suffering from a range of conditions such as:

  • Back problems with chronic pain – muscular imbalance, poor posture, slipped disc, spinal stenosis, spondylosis, spondyloarthritis, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, etc.
  • Recovery after orthopaedic surgery (hip, knee, shoulder, ankle replacement)
  • Recovery after back operations (slipped disc, stabilisation, decompression, etc.)
  • Recovery after an accident
  • Chronic or degenerative diseases (osteoarthritis, etc.)
  • Ankylosing spondylitis or Bechterew’s disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rheumatoid polyarthritis
  • Post-polio syndrome

 

At the Leukerbad Clinic, types of treatment are planned individually. Constant medical supervision is assured by a doctor specialising in orthopaedic surgery and traumatology of the locomotor system, as well as a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

 

The programmes have been designed by our medical team, which has specialist expertise in orthopaedic surgery and traumatology of the locomotor system, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sports medicine, manual medicine, thermal medicine, thalassotherapy and climatology, acupuncture and neural therapy. Treatments are entirely personalised to meet patients’ needs and generally include 2 to 5 therapies a day. The number of daily therapies may be increased where necessary.

 

These programmes help to restore quality of life and mobility:
