Our holistic approach

For us, treatment focuses on the human being. And from an orthopaedic point of view, this of course means the musculoskeletal system as a functional unit. We use this holistic approach to treat both degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system and acute injuries to muscles, ligaments and bones. Of course, our primary goal is to initially relieve your acute pain with appropriate measures. It is also important to uncover the underlying causes of your symptoms and get to grips with them in the truest sense of the word.

Securing quality of life

Orthopaedic diseases are often associated with congenital or acquired misalignments and incorrect weight-bearing. For the most part, however, it is a matter of degenerative processes as part of natural ageing. Ageing is a natural process that causes more discomfort for some than for others. Our goal is to make these processes as pain-free as possible for you. They cannot always be cured – it’s difficult to turn back the hands of time – but the situation can usually be improved with our non-surgical treatments to such an extent that your quality of life is maintained over a very long period of time. Our experience shows that a significant improvement can be achieved without surgery in the majority of our patients with degenerative diseases. If, in individual cases, surgical treatment is the better option for you, we will refer you to an expert colleague. Through the ATOS Group, we are connected to surgical clinics and have access to renowned specialists in various fields.

Disease prevention

The best way to treat diseases is to ensure they don’t develop in the first place. We thus dedicate a great deal of energy to the prevention of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. We use a holistic approach for this as well. What effects will a deformity of the foot have on the entire musculoskeletal system as we get older? How can one-sided stress in professional life or in sport be identified and what measures must be taken to prevent later damage? We carry out a check-up, much like a dental prophylaxis to prevent caries – except that in this case we are concerned with the condition of your musculoskeletal system. We determine the influence that congenital misalignments as well as your private and professional life circumstances could have on your musculoskeletal system. Ideally, this enables the necessary measures to be initiated before pain even arises.
