Physiotherapy


Service description

One of the essential areas of health, especially with regard to mobility and its restoration, is physiotherapy.

This field plays a vital role in the recovery and maintenance of body movement, with the physiotherapist being the professional responsible for providing the necessary tools to achieve this. Therefore, when movement and functionality are limited due to injuries, disorders or the aging process, physiotherapy becomes a fundamental resource.

Prevention

In the field of health, prevention is always preferable to cure, and physiotherapy aligns perfectly with this principle by offering the benefits of preventive medicine. This discipline not only benefits athletes, but also the elderly, those who perform physical activities or simply carry out everyday tasks.

Procedures

Physiotherapy is based on preventive medicine approaches, using a variety of actions, exercises and specialized equipment.

There may be an undiagnosed condition causing muscle discomfort. If not treated properly, the situation may worsen and require more invasive treatment, such as surgery. In contrast, preventive physical therapy includes a thorough evaluation and implementation of necessary improvements to correct current problems or prevent future ones.

Injuries

Whether it's treating muscle tears or preventing osteoarthritis, physiotherapy offers solutions tailored to the individual's age and condition. If you need to prevent or recover from injuries caused by daily or physical activities, physiotherapy is the answer. Even after surgery, post-operative care often includes sessions with a physiotherapist.

If you suffer from joint or muscle ailments, including the after-effects of COVID-19, physical therapy can improve your quality of life. It is essential to receive treatment from a qualified healthcare professional.

Importance of Physiotherapy
