Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that identifies human movement as the source of an individual’s health and well-being.

MedInstitute physiotherapists identify issues and offer individual treatment programs to maximize movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.

                                                 How this process works

Physiotherapy is used to help people of all ages that are affected by injuries, illnesses or disabilities.

New and highly effective methods are applied to restore the valuable mobility of joints and improve imbalanced muscles. Some techniques include joint mobilization/manipulation, soft tissue massage and various forms of electrophysical agents (such as cryotherapy, heat therapy, iontophoresis and electrotherapy).

                                                                         Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation includes different techniques and methods of treatment, which maximize possible healing of structures and functions.

In cases of accidents, bruises, fractures, tearing of muscles and cords, treatment is often carried out using traditional and conservative techniques and, in some cases, through operations. Consequently, it is important to choose the most appropriate methods to integrate with these different treatments and a careful plan of rehabilitation is carried out.

In cases of a forced period of immobility of the spine and upper extremities, the muscles need to be rebalanced and physiotherapy can restore mobility and functions of the spine and joints in the shortest possible time.
