What group physiotherapy is about?

Group physiotherapy is the procedure whereby several patients participate in therapy sessions simultaneously. In these sessions there is a specialist who leads the whole activity.

Conducting group physiotherapy sessions

Those patients who attend group physiotherapy sessions come to these procedures with common or different medical conditions. These patients may have back pain, shoulder pain, pain in the knees or other areas of the lower and upper limbs, and pain in the hips. In other words, group physiotherapy sessions are organized for a number of people who have similar or different pains.

In this framework, the role of physiotherapist is to develop a medical recovery program through which each patient can reach his or her goal. This means that during each session the physiotherapist shows the patients the exercises and then supervises them to ensure that the exercises are performed correctly. Each session begins with a warm-up, in order to avoid the risk of injury as much as possible.

It is very important that each patient correctly performs the exercises that the physiotherapist shows them in order to achieve the desired results. If the exercises are not performed correctly, the patient will not benefit from the physiotherapy sessions. Furthermore, there is a risk of causing further pain or discomfort in certain areas of the body. Due to this, when a patient is not performing the exercises correctly, the physiotherapist intervenes to correct these mistakes. Finally, the patient will be able to perform each exercise in the group physiotherapy sessions exactly as they should.
