Physiotherapist (physical therapy)
Assesses, diagnoses, treats and prevents a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders using physical exercise, massage and physiotherapy treatments. Physiotherapy helps to improve the quality of daily life by repairing damage, reducing stiffness and pain and increasing a person’s mobility.
Physiotherapists will explain, demonstrate and teach you how to correctly perform each exercise. This way, your treatment can continue beyond the walls of the clinic and you can accomplish faster results. With changes in the patient’s posture and improved health status, the specialist will adjust the therapeutic exercise programme.
Physical therapy applies to many diseases, especially back, spine and joint pain, to restore or compensate for mobility, to reduce the possibility of complications, or to maintain overall physical activity. Physical therapy may also be an integral part of treatment for obesity.
