What is Physiotherapy?
It is a range of methods, actions and techniques that, using physical means, heal, prevent and help people with somatic or organic dysfunctions, or those who want to maintain an adequate level of health.
A physiotherapist is a health professional with a bachelor degree, with ample knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, its movements and functions, who will help you reach the highest level of functional recuperation via the application of an assistance plan based in your specific needs.
