On this page we will inform you about the Clinic’s business activities. You will find explanations of the different disease patterns.
Gonarthrosis: this includes all degenerative diseases of the knee joint (femoro- tibial and femoro-patellar), which are identified by a progressive destruction of the joint cartilage and include other joint structures such as bones, synovial and fibrous joint capsules, as well as periarticular musculature.
The term coxarthrosis includes all degenerative defects in the region of the hip joint, which are connected with the destruction of the joint cartilage or the adjoining bones and capsules, respectively. Primarily this includes congenital deformation or inflammatory diseases as the activator.
Osteoporosis is a systematic disease of the skeleton, which is characterised by insufficient bone density, which predisposes a higher fracture risk.
A meniscus lesion is an intermission in the continuity of meniscus fibre, a degeneration of meniscus fibre or a combination of the two, whereby typical lesions can be related to different ages.
A bone metastasis is a distant manifestation of a malign primary tumour of the bone.
A leg axis malposition results from a diversity of reasons; it is a deviation from the physiological measurement. The leg axis (= anatomical axis) is the angle between the femur and tibia shaft axis, which physiologically amounts to approx. 5 – 7° valgus.
The hallux valgus is a deformity of the big toe with a fibula deflection and varus position of metatarsal I.
Sciatic pain induced by the intervertebral disc is an acute or sub-acute radical aggravating pathology with dermatome pain radiation in the leg, which is the result of a change in structure of the intervertebral disc with a lateral swelling or medial-, medial lateral prolapse, respectively.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a complaint due to a pressure impairment of the n. medianus (middle nerve) in the carpal tunnel (bony connective tissue in the wrist) due to a disproportion between the width and contents of the tunnel. Main symptom: “hands go to sleep”.
The rupture of the rotator cuff is a partial or total detachment of one or more tendons of the rotator cuff.
The definition of tendinitis calcarea shoulder is: One or more muscles of the rotator cuff are affected in their tendon and in imaging one can see calcification there.
The term “musculoskeletal malignant neoplasm” combines all manifestations of malignant tumours in the posture and movement organs.
