Share on |

Contenu de la page principale

The practice of physiotherapy involves health promotion, prevention, physiotherapy diagnosis and treatment of:

  1. Movement or motor disorders of the individual
  2. Deficiencies or alterations in functional capacities.

The masseur-physiotherapist may also contribute to initial and continuing training, as well as to research.

The masseur-physiotherapist provides care for patients of all ages (from infants to the elderly), in increasingly frequent collaboration with other health professions.
They work in private practice or on a salaried basis (follow-up care and rehabilitation centers, specialized rehabilitation centers, hospitals, clinics).
