Occupational therapy

The human being as a whole

In occupational therapy, we help and treat people of all ages whose abilities to act are limited or threatened by limitations. The aim is to strengthen them in carrying out activities that are meaningful to them in the areas of self-care, productivity and leisure in their personal environment. In this context, specific activities, environmental adaptation and counselling serve to enable people to act in everyday life, to participate in society and to improve their quality of life.

Depending on the diagnosis, there are also treatment indications

sensomotoric – perceptive treatment

  • e.g. people with Parkinson’s disease, after stroke
  • Sensitivity disorders in hands and feet

motoric – functional treatment

  • e.g. people with rheumatism, arthrosis and spinal diseases

Psychological – functional treatment

  • e.g. people with depression, dementia, burnout, addiction

Brain performance training

  • e.g. after brain trauma, dementia

We also treat children and teenagers

with developmental disabilities, who are picked up where they are in their development.
