The research group in Contemporary Physiotherapy (InPhysio) is composed of physiotherapists dedicated to generating new knowledge in various fields of physiotherapy, as well as to the clinical care of patients and the training of future clinicians and researchers. The group’s interests range from the integration of the neuroscience of pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction with the clinical aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy treatment, to the care of patients with neurological, cardiorespiratory, and persistent Covid diseases.
According to the World Health Organisation, physiotherapy is an essential part of universal health coverage. About 2.4 billion people have a health condition that requires physiotherapy care, and this demand is expected to increase due to changes in health and population characteristics. Today, Covid-19 has led to a substantial increase in the need for physiotherapy.
