What does the physiotherapist ?
The physiotherapeutical assistance is focussed on reducing problems during moving. It intends to increase or maintain the quality of human movement, reduced by diseases, trauma, accidents and syndroms.
Physiotherapic treaments are aimed on a methodical method. Besides the registration and orientation of the patient there is an anamnesis conversation and a physiotherapic research. The clinacl reasoning forms here the basics for starting a treatment concept. In his professional and personal care the physiotherapist has more and more the task of: guiding/informing, steering/exercising, fyscial therapy, manual operations and prevention.
Before the referral of the patient, the doctor can request a consultative physiotherapic examination. Goal here is to perform an additional loco-motoric examination by the physiotherapist to confirm the indication for physiotherapy.
This examination of the physiotherapist has an own nomenclature number and can be executed perfectly on demand of the doctor. A medical prescription with mention of ‘consultative physiotherapist examination’ is herefore necessary. Physiotherapists will then give their own vision on the movement problems and the dysfunction of the patiet.
