Physiotherapy in Cyprus

Physical therapy develops, maintains and restores motor function.

Physical therapy’s primary objective is to assist in restoring bodily movement and normal functioning due to illness, injury and disability and for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of pathological pain and motor dysfunction.

Factors such as a violation of posture and muscle imbalance resulting from abnormal working conditions, unhealthy lifestyle, and other hazardous conditions can be adjusted with proper education, guidance and training. The main objective is to minimise the likelihood of future problems.



Doctors and physical therapists develop effective programmes of therapy for treating a broad range of diseases, using extensive tests to discover the cause of the symptoms.

A qualified physiotherapist can make a preoperative and postoperative plan to restore normal movement and flexibility, and help mobilise patients undergoing surgery for a more rapid recovery without increasing treatment duration.

Using medical equipment, physical therapists analyse the development and course of physical recovery and provide guidance on the use of many therapeutic and assistive devices, such as splints, crutches, wheelchairs, using sports equipment and so on.

Occupational therapy


This is the science that helps people carry out all essential daily activities, despite a health problem or disability.

An occupational therapist covers a variety of issues, providing effective treatment.

Treatment is aimed at:

  • improving flexibility and overall mobility of the upper extremities;
  • improving motor function;
  • achieving maximum independence in daily activities;
  • increasing concentration;
  • obtaining new skills;
  • problems associated with self-catering.
