Physiotherapy may be defined as a science that is applied in health prevention and treatment by using physical resources. Its application requires an understanding of the human body's structures and functions.


The doctor studies, diagnoses, prevents and treats, among other, the kinetic-functional disorders (associated with human biomechanics and functionality) resulting from changes in human organs and systems. In addition to that, Physiotherapy studies the beneficial effects of physical resources like body movement, electromagnetic radiations and currents, ultrasounds, among other resources, on the human body. It is the field of action of a professional who was trained in a physiotherapy degree.


The physiotherapist is able to assess, reassess, prescribe (physiotherapeutic treatments), provide a kinetic-functional diagnosis, prognosis, intervention and advanced physiotherapy.
