Physiotherapy can help patients suffering from a variety of neurological and orthopaedic conditions. This includes hospitalised patients undergoing both surgical and non-surgical management of these conditions as well as those suffering from respiratory distress.
Patients that are overweight, suffering from osteoarthritis, or that have generalised weakness can massively benefit from physiotherapy too. It can also be used to help to prevent injuries, and increase the fitness and strength of athletic and working dogs.
