The physiotherapists at Balgrist University Hospital work closely with our doctors to work out a treatment programme that is specially tailored to meet your personal needs.
A mainstay of our personalised rehabilitation programme is the hospital’s first-class treatment infrastructure: besides treatment rooms generously fitted with the latest equipment, there are two training rooms, a hydrotherapy pool and a swimming pool, as well as an outdoor walking path.
Orthopaedics and rheumatology
Analogous to our specialised medical teams, we have specialised physiotherapy teams.
Spinal cord injury (paraplegia)
Physiotherapy at the Spinal Cord Injury Centre is responsible for the rehabilitation and repeat rehabilitation of inpatients and outpatients with complete or incomplete spinal cord injuries.
A strong and stable core is the basis of a healthy posture and essential for daily physical activities and sports. Our physiotherapists have developed an efficient core strength training programme consisting of tried and tested exercises. ‘Rumpfzirkel’ (meaning ‘core circuit’) brings you a series of exercises to strengthen and stabilise the different muscle groups. The only equipment you need is a workout mat. Training regularly for just 10 minutes a day will effectively increase your core strength. The ‘Rumpfzirkel’ app will transform your iPhone and Co. into a motivational training partner.
