Clinical Pictures and Symptoms
Injuries to ligaments, joints or bones, or the treatment of complete or incomplete leg paralysis: The underlying clinical pictures are as varied as the complaints.
Obtain detailed information about various clinical pictures and symptoms, therapy options and diagnostic methods. Specific orthoses and supports are offered for each illness; they can help alleviate your complaints.
Various ligaments on the ankle stabilise the joints in conjunction with muscles encompassing them. Therapy in case of ligament instability depends on the cause and severity of the instability. A phase-appropriate fitting with an orthosis is essential in case of a ligament rupture.
The knee joint is the joint in the body which is subjected to the most strain. There is therefore considerable risk of injury or disease. Therapy depends on the cause of the knee complaints. A support or orthosis can stabilise and guide the joint, relieve strain and alleviate pain.
The cruciate ligaments together with the collateral ligaments hold the knee joint together. In case of cruciate ligament rupture, the damaged cruciate ligament is often replaced with a piece of the body’s own tendons. Orthoses stabilise the knee joint and promote early mobilisation.
Cerebral paresis is a usually spastic disturbance of the nervous and muscular system that occurs in children. Multidisciplinary treatment is normally applied. Medical devices ranging from infants to adults are available to help with posture and positioning as well as improving balance and the ability to walk.
