Physiotherapy is a technique of physical rehabilitation. It focuses on improving motor abilities, balance and posture. Limitations in the musculoskeletal system can be caused by trauma or chronic problems such as over-use injuries, which are usually orthopaedic or neurologic in origin.
Physiotherapy is mainly about functioning. It is an active process, which demands trust and cooperation between therapist and patient, as well as the patient’s responsibility for progress and improving her/his physical condition and wellbeing.
