Physiotherapy includes active and passive forms of therapy that treat diseases from almost all medical fields. Physiotherapy often accompanies the treatment of diseases with the aim of optimizing the body’s functionality and compensating for movement deficits.
The forms of treatment vary depending on the clinical picture of the patient. In general, physiotherapy treats postural defects as well as damage to the musculoskeletal system. Physical exercises promote the mobility of certain parts of the body, special movements strengthen weakened muscles, relaxation exercises help to relieve muscle pain, breathing exercises can mobilize respiratory diseases. In addition, physiotherapy can be recommended as pregnancy support or to promote heart-lung function. Simple exercises also help to relieve back, neck and shoulder tension, which is often caused by sitting rigidly in the office. Injuries caused by sports or accidents can also be effectively treated with physiotherapy.
With the help of physiotherapy, pain and deficits are compensated by adapting physical exercises to the diseased areas. Building up muscles and improving the mobility of joints has an effect on the entire musculoskeletal system. Mental well-being often depends on the physical state of health of the person. Physical principles strive to promote the body in such a way that a maximum quality of life can be achieved in which one’s own body perception, self-confidence and self-esteem are central.
