In physiotherapy, the focus of action is the human body. A physiotherapist helps people suffering problems with their posture and movements.

Are you interested in helping and counselling people, so they can (once again) move better? Do you like to interact with people and are you able to identify an individual problem, making use of the knowledge and skills you have acquired? If so, the course of studies for the qualification Physiotherapy is perfect for you! For every action the correct reaction. A physiotherapist helps people suffering problems with their posture and movements. Above all these forms of therapy are currently developing rapidly, with three main groups emerging: movement therapy, massage therapy and physical therapy. However, it is not always sufficient to employ only (para)medical treatment to solve the problems. The cause of the complaints is sometimes not physical, but more in the work or home situation. Against that background, it is important that you as a physiotherapist look closely at the patient him or herself. Do you offer the correct reaction to every action? Fontys School for Health-allied Professions. Physiotherapy English Stream is officially registered as Bachelor programme Fysiotherapie and will lead to the degree Bachelor degree of Health in Physiotherapy.
