    Medicofit Clinic achieves high success rates in injury rehabilitation through two operating principles:

    • Modern physiotherapy that guides patients from the acute phase of injury to excellent physical condition,
    • By fully individualising therapy and exercise protocols for each patient.

    Modern therapy aims at restoring and improving motor function and therefore has a higher success rate in practice than conservative therapy, which basically only focuses on symptom relief. Acute rehabilitation of injuries aimed at improving the functions is the foundation of all professional processes at Medicofit.
