Physiotherapy is an umbrella term for a plethora of therapy methods. Many sub-areas are combined here, such as manual therapy, classic massage, physiotherapy for neurological illnesses, children’s physiotherapy, sport physiotherapy and training – just to mention a few. No matter the individual term, they all strive for one outcome:
Restoration of a natural function.
“Physiotherapy” comes from the ancient Greek and means as much as “restoration of natural functionality”. Physiotherapy treats pain and its cause in the musculoskeletal system. Additionally, there are physical functional disorders. Therapists represent an independent discipline in the vast spectrum of conventional medicine and contribute to medical primary care. In our daily work we support patients maintain their autonomy by improving or stabilizing their health. The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life of each and every one of our patients. This starts with every-day activities such as transferring out of beds and chairs or climbing stairs, up to competition training for an athlete. Primary step is to first relieve pain, then increase movement by mobilizing the joint and finally increase strength and stabilization with specific exercises.
