Physiotherapy is a medical field dealing with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. It is part of a comprehensive rehabilitation that emphasizes interdisciplinary links especially with medical disciplines. Physiotherapy uses standardized procedures based on the latest scientific knowledge and empirical findings, together with natural energy resources in the form of physical therapy. Physiotherapy approaches are primarily based on knowledge of anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, biomechanics and developmental kinesiology.

The aim of physiotherapy is to restore motion and physiological functions of man and his return to a painless life.

Physiotherapy with its specific means intervenes where movement and other physical and mental function are threatened by the aging process, injury, illness, or congenital defects.

Before visiting a physiotherapist, it is advantageous to be examined by a rehabilitation physician, which physiotherapy purposively requires or a medical specialist, who may require physical therapy as part of their field, exceptionally also a general practitioner who may require short-term physical therapy. A specialist in the field of Rehabilitation and physical medicine (formerly physiatry, balneology and therapeutic rehabilitation) after a thorough examination determines whether the patient's condition requires more aggressive medical intervention (e.g. an operation), or whether rest in bed would be more beneficial.

The physiotherapist is an expert on the issue of the musculoskeletal system, who based on his own examination and in accordance with the recommendation of doctors sets up and implements a combination of physiotherapy practices customized for the patient with regard to his or her needs. In therapy, a holistic view of the patient is used. Not only the areas of pain are treated, but distant body segments are also taken into account. The psyche also has a considerable impact on the musculoskeletal system.

The physiotherapist performs complex kinesiology testing, an analysis of activities of daily living, working sterotypes and sporting activities. A part of physiotherapy is prevention, education and counseling in order to maintain or restore motor functions, as well as recommendations for ergonomic adjustments of the residences and workplaces of patients. Through physiotherapy procedures, methods and techniques the physiotherapist specifically affects the function of the locomotor system, internal organs and mental function.
