Physiotherapy acts in the treatment and prevention of osteomusculoskeletal disorders, whether chronic or acute, results from trauma and its late or immediate consequences, repetitive strain injuries or orthopaedic pathologies.

We have trained professionals, who perform treatments through effective therapy techniques.

It is also fundamental in the follow-up of situations with surgical indication, whether for the preparation of surgery or recovery of the surgery, and may make a difference in quality of life and recovery potential, promoting a faster reintegration and recovery of independence.

Fisioterapia

Physiotherapy is based on the understanding and study of biological and health sciences, orienting its action on its own therapeutic mechanisms, such as morphological sciences, physiological sciences, pathology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomechanics, kinesiology, in addition to behavioural and social disciplines. The aim of this area is to offer a holistic approach to the patient, promoting health for people of all ages and providing rehabilitation programs for pain management and injury prevention in order to maintain and/or restore the integrity and normal function of organs and tissues.

Physiotherapy

It is provided in circumstances where movement and function is threatened by ageing, injury, pain, disease, disorder, environmental conditions or factors and with the understanding that functional movement is central to what it means to be healthy.

It is reality that can make the difference in quality of life and recovery potential, promoting faster reintegration into sporting or work activity.

According to WCPT it is the service provided by Physiotherapists to individuals and populations in order to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional capacity throughout life.

It involves interaction between the Physiotherapist, users/clients, other health professionals, families, carers and communities in a process where movement potential is examined/evaluated and goals are agreed upon, using specific knowledge and unique techniques. Physiotherapists are focused on identifying and maximising quality of life and movement potential in the areas of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. These areas encompass physical, psychological, emotional and social wellbeing.

Also from the same domain, Osteopathy is an approach that focuses on a deep understanding of the anatomy, physiology of the human body and the interactions between all its components.

The techniques used in osteopathy are mostly manual and always non-invasive. Any person, regardless of age, can be treated by an osteopath, who is prepared to act both in newborn babies and the elderly.
