Physiotherapy

The physio-therapeutic treatment can often diminish functional damages considerably and relieve therefore further impediment. The physiotherapy needs to be subscribed and over-viewed within a rehabilitation plan which will be set up by the specialized doctor.

Offers of the physiotherapy and occupational therapy are very rare in Tanzania and are often unknown (also even to medical staff). Because there is only one school for physiotherapy in Moshi (North-Tanzania) with approx. 20 graduates per year and another one in Zanzibar. The graduates often wander into the private sector with the view of better payment, or search employments in which their qualification is recognized and promoted. In particular they depend on cooperation with certified doctors.
