The appointment starts with a conversation with the patient. Together with the patient, we analyze the activities and factors that may have led to or exacerbated the symptoms. This is followed by an assessment of joint mobility, muscle strength and movement patterns and orthopaedic or neurological tests to determine the cause of the problem.

Based on the findings, an individual treatment plan is given to the patient. This includes individual exercises to relieve pain, improve mobility and muscle strength and prevent further injuries or problems.

Exercises are done with the correct technique and advice will be given to achieve the goals. If necessary, treatment is also combined with other interventions (manual therapy, dry needling, kinesio taping, etc.).

The physiotherapist will also give recommendations for ergonomics. If necessary, orthoses and other aids are prescribed.

Frequently asked questions

Iยดm having pain in my neck or back. Which treatment would be most suitable for me?

  • It is advisable to start with physiotherapy first to determine the exact cause of the problem. The physiotherapist will choose an appropriate individual approach to resolve the problem.ย 

How to prepare for a physiotherapist's appointment?

  • For the appointment bring comfortable sportswear. If you have been referred by a family doctor, please bring the referral letter or send it digitally in advance to info@profysio.ee. If you have been referred by an orthopedist or other specialist, please bring an epicrisis including diagnostic procedures, surgeries and treatment recommendations.

What are โ€œrelative contraindicationsโ€?

  • For relative contraindications, we recommend that you consult your doctor first to make sure that physiotherapy is indicated and does not worsen the condition. With malignancies or suspected malignancies, therapeutic exercise is permitted and recommended, and you will also receive advice on pain reduction and how to continue normal daily activities. In this case, manual physiotherapy is contraindicated.
  • Blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or more should be treated with medication. Exercising with very low blood pressure (less than 80/60 mmHg) may worsen the condition. In this case, the cause of very low blood pressure should be determined first. When blood pressure is treated with medication, physiotherapy is highly recommended to receive advice on lifestyle changes and appropriate forms of exercise.
  • During the third trimester of pregnancy, it is allowed to do exercises and apply kinesio tape to relieve the symptoms. Manual therapy is contraindicated.
