Within the frame of its competences, the traumatology-orthopedics physiotherapy service deals with all therapeutic activities related to treatments of the rachis and the musculoskeletal system. These cares concern the musculoskeletal, articular, ligamentary and tendinous systems.

After the medical consultation with our specialists of physical and rehabilitation medicine or specialists of injuries related to sports activities, patients receive a care prescription adapted to their condition.

They receive a planning for their cares within the Rehazenter.

There are multiple cares provided by the traumatology-orthopedics service.
They include regular assessments and treatments for all patients sent to the service.
Therapists attend a in-service training course to master state-of-the-art techniques in their respective domains of expertise.
A specialized department deals with lower back pain treatments within the dynamic rachis recovery group.
