Physical medicine at WPK: Postoperative

follow-up care

The care of patients immediately after surgery plays a crucial role. Mobilization as soon as possible through special training is important here, as is treatment of the surgical site with lymphatic drainage to successfully and effectively treat and reduce swelling that follows postoperatively.

  

Our physical medicine department is also here for you on weekends 

 The Physical Medicine Department of WPK is always there and on duty for you: be it on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays! One of the motives of the Wiener Privatklinik for doing this is that there must be post-operative physical therapy and treatment for everyone, no matter the day of the patients surgery.

  

Physical Medicine, which is characterized by Conservative Pain Therapy

 This means the use of remedial gymnastics, massage, ultrasound, electrotherapy and osteopathy to relieve or eliminate joint pain, pain from the muscles, spinal problems (disc problems), headaches and dizziness.

 

Mobility Training at the Wiener Privatklinik

The mobility of older people is restored here. Fall prevention as well as gait safety training is performed so that older people can once again manage their daily lives on their own after a hospital stay.
