Physiotherapy is one of the most commonly used physiotherapy methods, which uses movement to heal, and consists of simple, easy to perform exercises. In each case, the physiotherapist will design a series of individual exercises for the patient, so that the physiotherapy is as personalised and problem-specific as possible.
A frequently asked question is in which cases physiotherapy is recommended. It is particularly important in the case of acute injuries and post-operative rehabilitation, as it is an effective way of restoring movement function that has been impaired by trauma.
Physiotherapy can be used in a very wide range of applications, from knee operations to ankle sprains and aching waists, and for all types of musculoskeletal complaints.
How does physiotherapy take place in Budapest?
If you are suffering from musculoskeletal problems, please contact us! In each case, we will develop a personalised treatment plan so that we can plan exactly what term of rehabilitation is best for you.
When preparing a treatment plan, it is very important to prevent patients from doing certain types of movement too early after surgery, which could delay recovery. We also take into account the speed at which the patient recovers, as a competitive athlete recovers more quickly than an older person.
It is important to point out that there are several specialisations of physiotherapy that can effectively treat neurological, cardiovascular and even respiratory problems. But even if you are pregnant, you can consult a physiotherapist to help your body adapt to the changes and stresses of pregnancy.
Physiotherapy for athletes
Physiotherapy can be extremely useful in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. It is particularly important for athletes, as regular exercise puts increased strain on joints, muscles and bones, which can cause injuries, pain, stiffness and other musculoskeletal problems.
Physiotherapy can help reduce these symptoms and improve mobility, muscle strength and endurance. It also aims to prevent recurrence of injuries and reduce rehabilitation time.
During sports rehabilitation, the phase between the work of the doctor and the fitness trainer is always supported by a physiotherapist. In other words, after surgery or an acute injury, physiotherapy helps to restore movement function and begin to build confidence in the body so that the athlete can dare to move freely again.
Physiotherapy combined with manual therapy
The aim of physiotherapy is to restore movement function after injury or trauma, and is therefore not an outpatient therapy. This means that physiotherapy improves the condition, not the source or cause of the problem. However, in the case of long-standing, chronic complaints, it is advisable to look for the causes, and manual therapy is the best way to do this. This is why we often combine the two treatments.
When should I stop physiotherapy?
The specific exercises and early mobilisation used by physiotherapy can significantly shorten recovery, but in the long term (chronic cases) it does not promote recovery. It can even be counterproductive in some cases. This means that a patient’s sense of illness persists while he or she is undergoing physiotherapy. Therefore, physiotherapy should only be used until the patient is cured. Once the pain is gone, the physiotherapy can be abandoned and the patient can return to their normal movements.
