"I highly recommend
“I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Physio! I had a horrible neck pain. Lars was quick to figure out what was wrong with me and immediately alleviated my pain. Something many other physical therapists in the past have been unable to do. It amazed me, especially because he used completely different techniques than any other physical therapist I’d visited. I’m eternally grateful to Copenhagen Physio for treating me better than I ever have been.”
"This is by far the best one
I have ever been to."
“I have been to multiple Physiotherapists in Switzerland and Germany. This is by far the best one I have ever been to. STRONG recommendation. Lars informed clearly and detailed how he intended to approached my session. He studied my injury, performed tests and communicated his findings and interpretations very accurate and demonstrated those. Lars was calm, professional, friendly and yet efficient. Both tumbs up!”
"I recommend the place to
everyone around me."
“I have struggled with sports injuries for +10 years and never found someone who could help me with the right treatments - except from Copenhagen Physio! They have made more progress with me in 3 weeks than any other physiotherapist ever managed. It is my absolute go-to place for any treatment related to pain in my body. I recommend the place to everyone around me having any injuries, and they have also been helped! :)”

What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is basically about treating your injuries and pain in the body. We are able to help you if you fx have back pain or if you have been injured in a soccer match. Physiotherapy is also about rehabilitation, which is relevant after surgery or if you have suffered a sports injury. In any case, we can help you recover faster from the injury and make you pain free.
What does a physiotherapist do?
A physiotherapist's primary task is to examine and treat patients for pain as well as rehabilitate patients after an injury or surgery. Most patients go to a physiotherapist because they have experienced pain somewhere in the body. Fx it is estimated that at any given time in Denmark there are approx. 1 million people who have back pain. As a physiotherapist, we spend a lot of time relieving and treating pain.
As a physiotherapist, we must try to clarify why our patients are in pain and why the pain has occurred. There can be many different reasons for this. It is the physiotherapist's job to figure out what the cause of the pain is and treat it.
In addition to relieving pain, we also use physiotherapy to rehabilitate after surgeries, prevent injuries and increase the performance of elite athletes.
How to examine as a physiotherapist
A treatment with a physiotherapist always starts with a conversation, where we review your problem as well as previous injuries and old surgery. You will then be examined to find out the cause of your problem.
As a physiotherapist, we are trained to investigate why you are hurting in a specific place. To assess why the pain or injury has occurred, physiotherapists use many different tests. It could be muscle testing to assess how the strength is in a specific muscle. Or it may be a mobility tests that provide answers to where the mobility is impaired and needs to be treated. We can also examine whether specific structures have been damaged, such as a cruciate ligament or ligament in the ankle.
On the basis of a thorough examination, the physiotherapist will start a treatment that suits your specific problem.
Treatment with physiotherapy
As physiotherapists, we are specialists in relieving pain and making the body function optimally.
In physiotherapy, we use many different techniques to treat muscles, joints and the nervous system. It could be manual treatment techniques, muscle activation as well as strength training and mobility exercises.
It is different which type of treatment is most useful and effective. It depends on the type of damage and structure involved. For example, heavy, slow resistance training is effective in treating tendon injuries, whereas back pain requires a different approach. Overall, when the muscles are functioning and the joints can move freely, most of the pain in the body tends to disappear.
