Germany has four seasons. With snow in the winter and warm summer days, the climate is full of contrast, yet without real weather extremes. Patients who are especially intolerant to heat and humidity will enjoy the dry and warm summers in Germany.
Rehabilitation is one of the most important parts of many treatment processes. Quickly accessing the correct rehabilitation program can restore and strengthen the body after diseases or injuries and help the patient to reintegrate back into his or her normal life. The need for rehabilitation exists in all age groups, although the type, level, and goals of rehabilitation often differ with age. People with chronic problems, often older people, have different goals and might require a different program or a longer period of rehabilitation than do younger people with a temporary problem (e.g. due to a fracture). Regardless of the severity of the disability or the skill of the rehabilitation team, the final outcome of rehabilitation strongly depends on the individual patient’s motivation. The aim of rehabilitation is to regain full function and this often/usually needs sustained and hard effort by the patient which is in contrast to the benefits of the Medical Spa experience.
