• What is it?

This is the speciality of physiotherapy responsible for preventing, treating and rehabilitating the functions of the integumentary (skin and fat) and lymphatic systems.

  • Origin

It had its "official" origin in Brazil in 1997 when a commission of studies in Physioaesthetics was created, but then a significant functional improvement was observed in burned patients, mastectomised patients, patients with lymphoedema, lipedema and alterations in scarring - after which the name was changed to Dermatofunctional Physiotherapy.

  • Applications

Within this speciality, as in other areas of physiotherapy, we can use electrosonothermal techniques (apparatus and cold/heat resources) and manual techniques. Among the manual techniques is Lymphatic Drainage, which is the main focus of my work.


Traumatology is the branch of physiotherapy in charge of preventing, treating and rehabilitating all types of musculoskeletal pathologies such as sprains, contractures, dislocations, tendonitis, etc.
My speciality is fracture and post-operative rehabilitation. I love the magic of being able to help my patients regain their ability to walk or simply perform activities of daily living, such as combing their hair, without pain!


Ageing is a natural process in our lives that is often accompanied by wear and tear and/or pathologies common to this phase.
In this context, physiotherapy is an essential resource to prevent, treat and rehabilitate age-related pathologies, such as, for example:

  • Muscle and/or joint pain;
  • Loss of balance;
  • Coordination disturbances;
  • Loss of strength and muscle mass;
  • Decreased cardiac and pulmonary capacity;
  • Gait disturbances;
  • Decreased flexibility;
  • Postural alterations.

Maintaining a routine of physiotherapy treatment helps to prevent accidents and falls, improve safety for the patient and their relatives and carers, and considerably improve their quality of life.
