The Quellenhof Rehabilitation Center in Bad Wildbad is a specialized neurological clinic with over 130 beds. The main areas of focus include the treatment of multiple sclerosis, stroke, post-polio syndrome and Guillain-Barré syndrome. The Quellenhof is a rehabilitation centre for neurological, orthopaedic and rheumatological patients with altogether 138 beds. The clinic is situated in the attractive countryside of the northern black forest, direct on the entrance to the park of the health/wellness resort Bad Wildbad. The town itself is in very close proximity and is wheelchair friendly. The Quellenhof is part of the "Sana Kliniken“, a partnership of currently 64 hospitals in Germany. It is a component of the Sana Clinics Bad Wildbad which is also resident to the Sana rheumatology centre Baden-Wurttemberg and the Sana Clinic for Internal Medicine. Together with the close cooperation of these acute hospitals, we guarantee a comprehensive and extensive patient care for concomitant diseases. RANGE OF SERVICES MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammation of the central nervous system, the causes of which are still not exactly known. It is estimated that around 200,000 people in Germany are affected by the disease. STROKE THIRD MOST COMMON DISEASE IN GERMANY In Germany, around 200,000 people suffer a stroke every year. Approximately 1/3 of those affected die as a result of the stroke, 1/3 retain more or less severe disabilities, and 1/3 survive it without functional restrictions. Although stroke is only the third most common disease (after cardiovascular diseases and cancer), it is the most common disease that can lead to disability in adults. Although stroke increases with age, it also affects younger patients to an increasing extent: in Germany, for example, there are around 9,000 - 14,000 strokes in people under the age of 45 every year. Post Polio Syndrome SEQUELAE OF POLIO The post-polio syndrome is characterized by the fact that decades after the acute illness, serious symptoms can reappear. On the one hand, there is a worsening of pre-existing musculo-skeletal complaints, on the other hand, the occurrence of new progressive muscle weaknesses. The decompensation of the denervation-reinnervation process that has existed since acute polio is assumed to be the cause of the post-polio syndrome. Stable sequelae of poliomyelitis once suffered must be distinguished from this. Guillain-Barre Syndrome POLYRADICULONEURITIS Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute to subacute, ie over days to a maximum of four weeks, inflammation of nerve cables and nerve roots ("polyradiculoneuritis") and currently occurs in Germany with an incidence rate of 1 - 2 per 100,000 per year the most common cause of acute flaccid tetraparesis. At the beginning there are sensitive discomfort and numbness in fingers and toes. Dull, pulling pains in the lumbar spine and flanks can also accompany this. The full picture of the disease is determined by relatively symmetrical, within a few days up to 4 weeks from distal to proximal ascending, flaccid pareses with loss of reflexes, which affect the arms and legs at about the same time. Bilateral paralysis of the facial muscles ("facial paralysis") is often detectable at an early stage, as is weakness in the chewing and swallowing muscles. Because the respiratory muscles are also affected, about 25 - 30% of all patients have to be artificially ventilated. The Quellenhof Concept: The Quellenhof pursues through interdisciplinary therapeutic teams an integrated therapy basis and pays special attention to the active participation of the patient participation in planning and carrying out the therapeutic measures. The disabled-friendly establishment and special appliance aid is guaranteed and approved through close co-operation with patient association such as the German MS Society (AMSEL, chapter of Baden-Wurttemberg of the DMSG). Rooming-in is offered for patients with children and persons accompanying the patient generally have the chance to share a double room. Patient relatives and carers have the possibility through our relative/carer project to stay with the patient a few days during his/her admission. The career may gain useful tips and an impression of how to cope and managed at home. YOUR WAY TO US Follow-up treatment (AHB) An AHB takes place directly after an inpatient stay in hospital. The social service of the referring hospital takes over the registration and the application for the assumption of costs by the cost bearer. Rehabilitation measure (Rehab) The doctor treating the patient applies for an inpatient rehabilitation measure for the patient from the responsible payer. As soon as they have received the cost assumption declaration from the cost bearer and the rehab application, the patient will be informed of the planned admission date. THERAPEUTIC SPECTRUM The adequate treatment of neurological diseases requires a large team of specially trained people. In addition to the doctors and nursing staff on the wards, the Quellenhof therefore has numerous therapists from a wide variety of specialist areas. The spectrum ranges from physiotherapy to art therapy to hippotherapy. In their wheelchair department, those affected are prepared for the correct use of the wheelchair, and their nutritional advice shows the positive effects of conscious nutrition. This therapeutic offer is rounded off by psychological care and support from social services.
