Physiotherapy in Lesotho

Our physiotherapy
30 years of clinical experience in applying physiotherapy in rural hospitals, in health centers and on community level helped us to formulate and promote a certain type of physiotherapy. We could call it „allround suitable“ physiotherapy. This means a safe and effective application of physiotherapy skills by trained people, using mainly human and natural resources.  In areas where qualified physio-therapists are still missing the physiotherapy skills can be taught and offered to patients who can benefit of it. We developed typical treatment programs for common clinical conditions. Some of the specific physiotherapy matters were translated into our conditions.

On this website you will find many of these topics in the link „Library“. We would like to share our experience and appreciate comments from you, wherever you are. Living in a mountainous region, we enjoy a rich variety of traditional herbs. Some can be used safely to sustain physiotherapy treatments. Aloe vera jelly helps in the treatment of painful joints, steeping inhalations of wild mint is often used in respiratory physiotherapy and we produce our massage ointment with periperi powder, resin of the poplar-tree, sunflower oil and beeswax. Find more in „Libraray and also Videos“.
