Degenerative diseases of joints and the spine

Degenerative diseases of joints and the spine

Do your joints or spine feel painful and stiff? Has the quality of your life deteriorated because of degenerative changes caused by aging and/or repeated micro damage? Our team of experts have considerable experience in conservative and post-surgery treatment of degenerative diseases of joints and the spine.

The treatment of degenerative joint and spine diseases is specific because the process of recovery is not finished with the regeneration of the degenerated tissue. Also, due to tissue degeneration, the amplitude of movements in the affected joint or part of the spine can be seriously limited, which complicates treatment and may lead to surgery (e.g. joint replacement with an endoprosthesis) and post-surgery rehabilitation. Regardless of whether conservative or post-surgery treatment is required, our team of experts will approach every patient individually and tailor the rehabilitation process, which includes:

  • Attenuation of pain and swelling
  • Restoration of joints’ mobility and soft tissue flexibility
  • Restoration of muscle strength, power and endurance
  • Restoration of coordination and balance.

Your progression through the rehabilitation stages as well as the moment of your return to the activities of everyday life are evaluated by scientifically based and clinically verified functional criteria, whereby the possibilities of complications or any other unwanted outcome are reduced to a minimum.

We have created two individual programs for the rehabilitation of degenerative diseases and the spine, depending on the type of treatment (conservative or postoperative) and the patient's functional status:

MM Reha - A standard functional rehabilitation program

The program is intended for patients who have undergone surgery and need to undergo post-operative rehabilitation, as well as patients for whom conservative treatment is indicated but who are not able to perform it independently due to functional limitations, despite education and an individually designed functional rehabilitation program. The program includes 2-4 visits a week to our center for therapy until the completion of the rehabilitation process.

MM Video Reha - Remote functional rehabilitation program

With patients with degenerative joint and spinal diseases for whom conservative treatment is indicated, and who have a satisfactory level of functionality, functional rehabilitation can be effectively carried out remotely. This program includes periodic (2-3 times a month) visits to our center for manual treatment, downloading instructions on practices in everyday life and the ways to perform prescribed exercises. In between visits, the patient performs kinesitherapy on their own, based on a formulated program they monitor through a special mobile application, which features videos of workouts and the dosing of the workload for each day.

Typical degenerative disorders of joints and the spine, successfully treated (rehabilitated) by our team of experts, are the following:

  • Hip and knee arthrosis
  • Degenerative disorders of vertebral discs

For the last two years, I have been successfully working with Professor Marković on regeneration, fitness and recovery from injuries and pain.

Unfortunately, injuries are an integral part of professional sports. That is why it is important to have an expert team on your side, such as Professor Marković's.  The comfortable and beautiful atmosphere of Motus Melior, with its professional and expert staff, is a winning combination for a quick recovery.
