Physiotherapy - Closing

Published: 16 May 2013

Physiotherapy is characterized by its view on humans as physical, psychological, social and existential wholes from a health perspective. Central concepts are the human body, movement, function and interaction as related to health from a biopsychosocial perspective. Central aspects of this knowledge are the understanding that there are healing mechanisms and resources for change within human beings and that they can affect their health through awareness of their bodies and adequate movement. Movement is also seen as a foundation for all human functions and as a means for humans to achieve goals in relation to their surroundings.
