In the first physiotherapy unit, functional and activity limitations are made visible in the form of a finding on the basis of the symptoms and a precise anamnesis.
Subsequently, in coordination with the patient, the individual therapy goal is determined, which the therapist implements in the exercise of his manual skills by applying various movement therapy treatment concepts and techniques in physiotherapy.
Physical forms of therapy such as heat and cold applications (e.g. peat packs), ultrasound and electrotherapy are also used.
