 Programme Description

 

What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is an important branch of healthcare that uses physical approaches (i.e. stretching, strengthening, hands – on techniques, taping, etc.), education and modalities (i.e. ultrasound, etc) to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well- being, taking into account all variations in heath status.

What does a physiotherapist do?
Physiotherapists treat physical conditions caused by accident, illness and aging, particularly those that affect the muscles, bones, heart, the circulation and lungs.

A physiotherapist examines an individual’s physical limitations and plan a suitable course of treatment in order to return this individual to his/her highest level of function.
