Regain Confidence and Trust in Your Heart

After a serious emergency, such as a heart operation or a heart attack, as well as in the case of chronic heart disease, we help patients to return to their normal, everyday routine and to improve their physical performance.

After a serious illness, it is important that patients regain confidence in their physical capacity for everyday life and work. For this purpose, an experienced and interdisciplinary team of cardiologists, heart and movement therapists, nurses, psychotherapists, nutritionists and occupational therapists is on hand at the Oberwaid. In consultation with you, individual therapeutic goals and a therapy plan will be determined.

Better Quality of Life

The main goal of cardiological rehabilitation is to improve your overall quality of life. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to overcome your fears and to learn to trust your own heart. In order to do so, we consider the stress factors that may have contributed to your illness, as well as the additional stress caused by your illness, and work out appropriate solutions. The technical equipment used for this at the Oberwaid is state of the art.
