Diagnosis and treatment under the roof of Gelenkpunkt

With imaging for rapid diagnosis

We use digital x-ray and ultrasound in our rooms as well as CT scans and MRI‘s which are available seven days a week for an exact evaluation of your condition. Thorough clinical examination combined with exact and fast imaging speeds up the diagnostic process. Both conservative and operative options for treatment can be discussed on the basis of an exact diagnosis.

Outpatient shockwave therapy for the treatment of chronic tendon and muscle pain

We offer high energy focused and radial shockwave treatment in our outpatients rooms. The most common indications are tendon pain at the knee, tendon pain at the Achilles and the plantar fascia, as well as pain at the elbow, also called tennis and golfers’ elbow.

AlterG partial weight-bearing treadmill

The AlterG is a computer controlled treadmill which has the option to reduce the body weight and therefore reduce the mechanical joint and limb load for the lower extremity. It is applied in the post operative or post injury course of a lot of lower extremity injuries and operations. The goal of a symmetric gait can be achieved faster and more reliable than with underwater or conventional gait training.

Furthermore a lot of athletes use it for training in periods of reduced load for the leg e.g. Achilles tendon problems muscle problems, shinsplints etc. it is possible to maintain athletic running fitness without overloading the tendon and creating a pain problem.

Back in action fitness test after anterior cruciate ligament injury

In a team effort the doctors of Gelenkpunkt as well as the physiotherapists and sports scientists of Sporttherapie Huber-Mair has developed a test battery comprising of eight single tests to evaluate the rehabilitation course after knee injury. The results of these tests allow for staged return to sport in a safe and controlled manner.
