The fields of orthopaedics and rheumatology are concerned with the musculoskeletal system, including its specific diseases and functions. The bones, muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons are the building blocks that make up the musculoskeletal system.

Diagnoses are based on an examination of the body’s static structures and movement patterns. The main goal of a diagnosis is to evaluate pain-triggering factors and potential restrictions in everyday activities.

Imaging procedures (e.g. x-rays, MRIs and ultrasounds) are used to illustrate and analyse the structure and condition of bones and joints. But these images and values alone tell us nothing about the function or resilience of the affected structures. Additional functional exams are therefore necessary, including posture analyses, foot pressure measurements, tests on balance and the risk of falling, strength measurement, work posture analysis and endurance and coordination tests.

The results of the above tests form the basis for an interdisciplinary, function-oriented rehabilitation programme. Numerous activation measures and techniques – in the form of individual or group therapies – are available.
