Coronavirus: Our protective measures

Joints, muscular system, bone health

In today’s society, we see contrary developments: a trend towards longer life expectancy and increased participation in sports alongside another trend towards lack of exercise and overweight. The human mobility and supporting apparatus is now subjected to greater stresses than ever before, and the consequences are often injury and premature wear that cannot be left untreated. At the same time, the prospects for repairing the resulting damage have never been better. In many cases, a significant improvement can be achieved with a careful investigation of the cause followed by conservative treatment. The Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Döbling Private Hospital is a renowned leader in this field.

The attending physicians at the hospital also have extensive experience in diagnostic and therapeutic arthroscopy (removal/preservation of damaged tissue via joint endoscopy). If a joint replacement is unavoidable, patients will find themselves in the best hands with our experienced specialists. Our hospital offers additional options for specialized treatment at the Center of Expertise for Sports Injuries.
