Physiotherapy

General information

Studying physiotherapy at the Faculty of Sports Studies allows students to acquire deep theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the context of preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic care in rehabilitation. Physiotherapy graduates are able in collaboration with physicians to implement diagnostic, therapeutic and preventative procedures and methods in the rehabilitation process and in patient care. With a sophisticated focus of study and systematic teaching of practical skills, graduates of this field can work in the implementation of programmes of the WHO and the United Nations and preventative health regeneration programmes for vulnerable population groups. Furthermore, they are able to prescribe and monitor physical intervention programmes in primary and secondary prevention of major chronic non-infectious diseases with dominant global prevalence. Students may also occupy an important place in the care of disabled citizens and with their professional knowledge and skills may contribute to their social integration.

Graduates of physiotherapy at FSpS MU will also be ready to work as sports physiotherapists in sports teams, clubs and organizations. Thanks to their special education in sport and in the application of therapeutic plans to compensate for unilateral sporting overload, they are able to enhance the quality of the sports training process supporting the health of athletes. Graduates are thus able to provide quality care to the general sporting population as well as to top athletes.

Due to the strong focus on sports physiotherapy and collaboration in research projects related to the physically active population, students of Physiotherapy at FSpS MU stand out from physiotherapy students at most other universities in the country.

  • describe and explain in accordance with kinanthropology and medico-biological and social sciences, basic theoretical and methodological knowledge in the field of therapeutic and preventative rehabilitation
  • practically apply diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and methods
  • investigate the musculoskeletal system of the individual to determine the differential diagnosis of a key issue, and based on the knowledge to design and apply a therapeutic plan
