Physical medicine at WPK: Postoperative
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.
All Subjects of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation can provide the highest quality of care for all patients requiring physical therapy. The following treatments are offered:
Traumatology and Orthopedics
Here, after disc surgery or targeted infiltration of the spine, exercise programs are designed for the individual patient to cope with everyday life.
Other Surgical Subjects
This is primarily concerned with postoperative follow-up care.
Here, adjunctive measures are set to offer a better quality of life to the patient who has been affected by chemotherapy.
Patients referred to the physical medicine department by internists are usually given circulatory training, vascular training, or weight-bearing training.
In addition to postoperative care, physical medicine in otolaryngology is used primarily for tinnitus
Here, very special programs are put together in close consultation with the surgeon during postoperative care.
The motto of the Wiener Privatklinik: With team spirit to success
Wiener Privatklinik thrives on the close cooperation of its affiliated physicians.
Only when everyone pulls on the same rope with the goal of achieving the best results for the patient, success is guaranteed.
At the WPK, every doctor knows every other doctor, and the cooperation, relationship and exchange between doctors is extremely effective. This team spirit also prevails in the team of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation: Together you are strong and the priority is to be close to the patient.
