What should you expect from us?
According to our vision, the following aspects are our priorities: to do only the things we do well; to measure is to know; innovative computer designed tests and measuring instruments are used to help you and us to keep your progress on track, because every complaint from you is our concern; we collaborate on your recovery to achieve maximum results and customer satisfaction.
A rehabilitation treatment focuses not only on the disease or condition itself, but also ultimately tries to relieve or eliminate as many symptoms of the problem as possible with as many lasting effects as possible. The goal of the rehabilitation treatment is to allow the rehabilitated person to function independently in all possible respects in society after the rehabilitation treatment. It may be that there are lasting effects of a disease or a condition. In this case, we teach the rehabilitant to manage the disability effectively in order to deal with the limitation. The rehabilitation treatment is sometimes done individually and at other times in groups. The disorder has implications not only for the patient, but also for the people in his/her immediate environment. We ensure that these people are closely involved in the rehabilitation process.
The therapy/rehabilitation protocol is designed according to the latest available research and meets all international guidelines. We pay much attention to the prevention of complaints, therefore supplying you with a personal exercise programme when you leave in order to allow you to work at your own level of fitness and maintain it when you are at home.
Have you recently developed a knee problem or have you been complaining about it for a long time?
