Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy offers a non-pharmacological therapeutic alternative to treat multiple ailments, both acute and chronic. Techniques as therapeutic exercise, heat, cold, light, water, manual techniques and electrotherapy can be used.

The main physiotherapist’s goal is to restore functionality to one’s body.

Physiotherapy (from the Greek φυσις physis, ‘nature’, and θεραπεία therapéia, ‘treatment’) is much more than just lying on the massage table, waiting to be cured and ending up covered in lotion. In acute cases, a treatment based more on manual techniques may be necessary to speed up tissue recovery. But what we do the rest of the time on a day to day basis is very important. That’s what will define your recovery from injury.

Remember, physical therapy goes beyond receiving a massage while lying on a table.

Active physiotherapy

Active physiotherapy treatment consists of detecting and correcting incorrect movement patterns that predispose you to injury and pain.

A physiotherapist helps restore functionality. It is your responsibility to participate in that work.

Above all, in chronic injuries, you must actively participate in your health and be aware that your actions are very important. This method helps you discover, correct as much as possible or counteract the causes and actions that lead to your injuries.

My passion is therapeutic exercises such as Pilates, SGA stretching and motor control among others. I combine work on the mat with work on the massage table.

Massages

Massages (well-known to everyone) and manual techniques are very useful tools to achieve improvements in the body. However, we must not forget that there are other techniques used in physical therapy.

This form of treatment can be used separately or altogether with other techniques.

Within manual therapies, I prefer working the diaphragm, soft tissue, massage, kinesiotaping, trigger points, and neuromuscular facilitation.
