WHERE DOES IT HURT?
CLICK ON THE BODY REGION
We developed this rubric so that you can learn about potential causes of your pain or functional limitations online in advance of a consultation.
Depending on your painful joint or affected body region, click on the pulsating point of the blue anatomical figure. This will take you directly to the most frequent diseases and injuries and their respective diagnostics and treatment options.
We hope this model representation organized by body region will provide you with a helpful initial overview. You will find even more information in our orthopaedics glossary.
DIAGNOSTICS AND THERAPY AT OUR PRACTICE
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
Head & neck
In the modern office world, with constant work on computers and monitors, tension and pain of the head and neck are very common occurrences.
Spine & torso
Just about every one of us has suffered from low back pain now and again. This is also frequently the consequence of our modern-day desk jobs.
Shoulder & upper arm
Our shoulder is the joint with the largest range of motion and hence very sensitive to both (sports) injuries as well as degenerative diseases.
Elbow & forearm
Here, overuse /stress syndromes like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow or even mouse elbow top the list of frequent conditions.
Wrist & hand
The hand-wrist unit is an extremely important functional structure in us humans, responsible for enormous motor capabilities in work, sports and leisure.
Hip & thigh
Here, we regularly encounter arthrotic, degenerative changes starting in middle age alongside muscle injuries in active people.
Knee & lower leg
The knee – our largest joint – is very frequently affected by sports injuries; wear and arthrosis also play a huge role in this part of the body.
Foot & ankle
Torn ligaments around the ankle joint are the most common minor sports injuries of all. On the foot, we often encounter what is called hallux valgus.
„If you want to stay strong, healthy and young and prolong your lifetime, be moderate in all things, breath pure air, care for your skin and partake of exercise daily, keep your head cold, your feet warm and cure a small ache by fasting rather than by medicines.“
