Our sports concept LIMES Sports.Care

Intensive. Innovative. Individual

Properly motivated by intensive support and a training program tailored to the individual, sport can help effectively and sustainably with mental illness. Experts recommend that structured sports programs should be included in the treatment plan as a third pillar alongside psychotherapeutic and drug therapies. With our individual sports program LIMES Sports.Care. we have created an essential therapy offer that supports the holistic success of treatment. The sports concept is accompanied by our medical advisor, Prof. Dr. med. Uwe Nixdorff, who is one of the leading prevention and stress experts.

Structure of our sports program

Our sports program is individually tailored to each patient. In 4 steps, it is determined in a structured way which training program suits oneself. The final training plan is thus tailored to the individual and contributes to holistic and sustainable treatment success.

Our sports scientists will determine your type of exercise at the beginning of your stay in a joint medical history discussion. Your wishes and goals are compiled and coordinated. The second step is training diagnostics. Diagnostic methods from competitive sports are used to determine the status quo of your athletic condition. The results are then evaluated and interpreted. Continuous monitoring supports the comparison between your own perception and objectively measurable values. Based on these steps, a training concept is finally created, which is thus tailored to the individual.

Varied sports offer

Our patients have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of sports. In addition to the classic therapy selection such as walking or jogging and strength training, unusual forms of sport and movement such as slackline, stand-up paddling, boxing, and archery are also offered.
