Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

Working together for your mobility and independence

Physiotherapy helps to restore your physical functions and movements after a surgery, injury, illness or disability. Our team will help you, through a myriad of techniques, to improve muscles and joints functions, restore physical strength, rebuild tolerance towards physical activities and with that, improve your overall state of health. The sooner we get started, the faster you’ll recover.

Step-by-step programs designed around your goals

Our physiotherapists will work with you to develop a goal-oriented plan for your complete recovery. The initial focus is to identify and resolve pain. This is followed by systematic efforts to restore strength, movements and functions as much as possible. The aim is to enable you to manage your physical well-being confidently and independently.
