Ergotherapy

Independent. Active. Fit.

Ergotherapy is used for movement disorders, body sensation and nerve conduction disorders, psychological and socio-emotional problems at any age. Ergotherapy is particularly helpful when limitations threaten self-sufficiency in everyday life and social integration into the environment. Through specific therapies, environmental adaptation, the use of aids and targeted counselling, the aim is to achieve independence, the ability to act in everyday life, social participation and thus to maintain or improve the quality of life.

In order to do justice to the individual situation of each person, a detailed and precise assessment and analysis of the environmental factors is important before therapy begins.

Our inpatients already receive our occupational therapy offers during their stay with us. If desired, the treatment can be continued on an outpatient basis after discharge. In addition, we offer outpatient therapies with and without a prescription for remedies or issue vouchers for one or more treatments.
