Physiotherapy is a form of treatment for many different types of disorders. The body’s ability to move and function correctly is central to Physiotherapy.
Illnesses and medical conditions can be treated with different methods:
- Remedial exercises and movement therapy
- Treatments such as electro- and hydrotherapy or the application of heat or cold
- Massage therapy
Physiotherapy is also important in the rehabilitation phase following surgery for broken bones, spinal problems and joint replacements as well as for the treatment of pulled muscles, torn ligaments or tendons and chronic joint problems such as arthritis.
In Neurology physiotherapy is used to treat diseases like Parkinsons and Multiple Sclerosis, so that day-to-day functions like standing, walking and movement of the arms can be preserved. After a stroke or a craniocerebral injury remedial exercises can help to improve and restore lost motor function.
Physiotherapy is also important in internal medicine and paediatrics.
Our goal is to alleviate acute and chronic pain, to offer relief for muscle tension and to improve the individual’s general mobility, strength and coordination.
Manual lymphatic drainage,a special form of massage, is also available. Lymphatic drainage encourages the drainage of lymph, especially after chest or knee surgery.
