Physiokinesis physiotherapy center is directed by Theodoros Betsos.
In our center, we use modern treatment methods which are scientifically-based rehabilitation methods.
We deal with pre and post-operative conditions, acute and chronic conditions of the joints and spine, sports injuries, neurological and cardiovascular conditions.
Our physiotherapy center is characterized by an unconventional concept of social medical care, as to what has already been happening in the particular field in Greece, and aims at the complete support and rehabilitation of patients.
In our new facilities, which are architecturally specialized and mechanically designed by professionals, we offer high-quality service and safety to all our visitors.
Our center is air-conditioned and fully ventilated, with appropriate lighting, dressing rooms, and women’s – men’s WC. We offer convenient access for disabled people, as well.
Our medical equipment is the most modern and suitable. It consists of classical physiotherapy equipment (Biofeedback, Laser, Diathermy, Tens, Magnetotherapies etc.), as well as modern physiotherapy equipment such as special beds for Manual Therapy, Tecar Therapy, Medical Training Therapy (MTT). We also have diagnostic equipment, such as equipment for digital foot analysis for the construction of orthotics, etc.
