The physiotherapy department is located on the ground floor of the National Rehabilitation Center (EKA), in an area completely accessible to internal and external patients. It is adjacent to the Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Social Work departments, in order to ensure the smooth and fast movement of patients from department to department.
The main goal of the physiotherapists of EKA is the reduction of pain and the improvement of mobility and functional capabilities of patients. Our ultimate goal is to improve quality of life and the integration of patients in society.
