Physical therapy provides services to people of all ages, from infancy to the very old, to develop, maintain and restore movement and function in order to improve their quality of life.

The aim of Physiotherapy is to help restore movement and normal body function in cases of illness, injury and disability.

Physiotherapy intervenes in the levels of promotion, prevention, treatment intervention and rehabilitation of pathological causes of pain or motor dysfunction. In this respect, intervention at the physical, psychological and social levels, is important to ensure full reintegration of the patient into his work and social environment. The physiotherapist can treat a wide variety of diseases using many different techniques. In most cases, the cause of pain and motor dysfunction is obvious, but sometimes things are not so clear, especially when symptoms are difficult to describe or cannot be easily identified. The physiotherapist has at his disposal a wide range of tests that can be applied to identify the cause of the symptoms and to design effective therapy programs. The physiotherapist’s concern is not only the effective handling of the present problem of the patient but also the identification of the factors which led to this condition. Factors such as incorrect posture, muscle imbalances, wrong working conditions, life style activities and other wrong habits can be corrected with proper education, guidance and training.

The aim is to minimize the probability of the same problem occurring again in the future. The Physiotherapist is also qualified to apply preoperative and postoperative programs to restore normal movement, flexibility and function and to help mobilize patients who have undergone surgery, for faster recovery and without extending their treatment duration. He can analyse their development and course of recovery using the appropriate equipment and can provide guidance for the use of many therapeutic and assistive devices such as splints, walking aids, wheelchairs, exercising equipment, etc.
