Rehabilitation works best when all the aspects of a patient’s health problems or disability are continually taken into consideration. We take advantage of the expertise of rehabilitation specialists from a variety of vocations to come up with an interdisciplinary rehabilitation concept that is based on individual needs. At the SPC, physical and occupational therapists (among others) also play the role of "paraplegia therapists”, and draw upon state-of-the-art robotics and extensive cooperation with other leading institutions to constantly strengthen our position as leaders of the field.
The Swiss Paraplegic Centre uses occupational therapy to support patients whose activities are limited by various clinical conditions.
Physiotherapy is a special type of training for people with limited capacities with regard to bodily functions and movement.
We offer assessments, therapy and advice to young and adult patients, both on an inpatient and an outpatient basis.
The movements of a horse’s back are primarily relaxing for the patient, but also have an invigorating and stimulating effect.
Sports therapy, in the interdisciplinary rehabilitation team, uses the instruments of sport to achieve rehabilitation objectives, for example improving strength, endurance, mobility, and movement coordination.
