Personal & Social Needs


Physiotherapy is a health care profession that provides services to individuals and groups in order to develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout life. This includes providing services in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors.

An important part of the treatment is practice therapy, which is meant to influence the possibilities for moving the joints and to increase muscle strength. You learn to move in a healthy manner that prevents or diminishes new problems.
