What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy aims to improve people's health and mobility through physical activity with treatment and prevention. Physiotherapists work by preventing, investigating and treating functional disorders limiting human mobility caused by pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, poor physical condition, breathing problems, mental or psychosomatic problems etc. The measures that physiotherapists recommend as preventive or rehabilitative means are based on analyses of the patient's physical condition and symptoms, as well as taking into account psychological and social factors.
The physiotherapist always strives to pinpoint the root of the problem rather than primarily treating the pain itself. A therapists role is to make the patient aware of their physical resources and thereby improve the possibilities to cope with the demands of everyday life. The demands of everyday life are very different depending on who you are, and how you spend your days. Physiotherapists' patients range from severely disabled people to world class athletes. Most physiotherapists use a variety of methods of pain relief, such as acupuncture or TENS and also orders home training.
Acute and chronic pain are two common reasons to visit a physiotherapist. Other reasons can be injuries caused by sports and breathing problems. Physiotherapists can also co-operate with sports teams to prevent injuries before they occur. This is accomplished though deep knowledge of injury mechanisms, biomechanics and anatomy resulting in insight about how injuries can be avoided.
