Hi there, my name is Yvonne and I’m a physiotherapist working in Switzerland for 2 years. At the moment I’m in the second semester of the Master’s degree in neurorehabilitation. I work also in that field in a care home where a lot of residents have a neurological disease since birth, acquired or due to a accident.
Quite often we have discussions about how long the residents in a chronic state should receive physiotherapy and to what extent. I think it’s often up to the therapist and that also ethic issues may influence the therapist in a certain way do decide if it’s usful or not. Lastly, its the general practitioner who does the prescription cause we still do not have direct access in Switzerland.
