 PD Dr. med. habil Pawel Bak, Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine" I help patients express their needs and support them on their path of healing and returning to everyday life and work.

Every patient my team and I can help use stairs or play ball with their grandchildren without pain using the various options of conservative treatment feels like a little victory. A victory over age-related wear, overexertion at work or during sports, and sometimes even poor habits. What I enjoy about rehabilitative medicine is that we treat the person as a whole and can already take action before they fall ill.

How can I protect my back even though I do hard physical labour? How important is nutrition after prosthetic surgery? Which medical conditions can acupuncture, chiropractics, special pain therapy or herbal remedies help with? My support is tailored to the individual patient. Even after surgeries I support Gelenk-Klinik patients throughout the after-care, right up to applications and occupational reintegration.
