What is physiotherapy?

Physical therapy is a way to treat the body for movement problems. The word Physiotherapy is a combination of the words ‘physio’ and ‘therapy’. Physio stands for movement theory and therapy is another word for treatment method. The body is one set of muscles, bones and joints, which are loaded every day. Most movements are self-evident and we perform them automatically. Think of sitting, dressing, walking and bending over. Only when this no longer goes smoothly or even becomes painful, we notice how much we actually move.

The goal of physical therapy is to improve movement capabilities, reduce pain, rehabilitate the body after injuries or surgeries, and improve overall health and well-being. The treatment is always tailored to your personal situation and is focused on the goal you want to achieve.

What does a physiotherapist do?

A physiotherapist falls under the paramedical professions and treats people with complaints to the musculoskeletal system.

These are, for example, people who suffer from certain joints or sore muscles. A physiotherapist is an expert in the field of posture and movement, where you can go for both acute and long-term physical complaints. Even if your movements are hindered as a result of a chronic disease or condition, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatism, you are in the right place with a physiotherapist. Complaints are treated in different ways, for example with massage therapy, exercise therapy and movement therapy. During the treatments, the physio often uses tools such as balls, massage products and fitness equipment.

With physiotherapy we want to reduce, eliminate and prevent movement restrictions. We also work on physical relaxation and an improvement of body posture. The physiotherapist will give you advice, treatment and guidance, so that you can carry out daily activities normally again.
