What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a series of treatment methods and activities which target the body's movement potential and thereby help the individual to function as best as possible. The aim is to treat and prevent diseases and disorders in the musculoskeletal system. Physiotherapists treat the sick and promote the health of healthy people by working from an understanding that the body is interconnected and influenced by the environment. In this way, physiotherapists work on the basis that each person is unique and has different needs and resources. At the first consultation, your problems are uncovered on the basis of a thorough examination and medical history. Depending on the symptoms and the extent of the damage, it may be relevant to include information about your current lifestyle in order to guide you in making appropriate changes. This results in a functional diagnosis, which ensures you an understanding of your problem, and forms the basis for the further course of treatment. You will often be referred by one of the clinic's chiropractors, in which case further treatment will take place in dialogue with the chiropractor to ensure the best possible course of treatment. Physiotherapy is practiced with the aim of developing, maintaining or restoring maximum movement and functional ability throughout life and can benefit people of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. Physiotherapy is used in circumstances where movement and functional ability are threatened due to ageing, injury, illness or other factors.
