Program description:
Major subjects are: basics of physiotherapy, manual techniques, physiotherapy
of cardio-respiratory diseases, locomotor diseases, neurological-psychiatric

rehabilitation, electro-diagnostics, radiology and imaging procedures.”
Obese people have to fight several diseases that are in connection with their
weight (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer). If you have the drive to help
them, dietetics will provide you the required knowledge. Healthy eating – and
thus the knowledge of a dietetian – is essential to prevent and successfully treat
several diseases, as medications or a surgery rarely provide complete solution.
Patients are often forced to stop eating their favourite treats, and a dietetian may
largely contribute to the patients’ treatment, balance and well-being by offering
enjoyable but healthy dietary options.
