Physiotherapy focuses on preventing health problems, alleviating pain, and maintaining, improving, and restoring range of motion and strength of muscles.
To get help from a physiotherapist, you need to register for a first consultation where a comprehensive health assessment will be carried out, so the most effective and personalised treatment methods can be suggested based on your individual goals and needs. At the same time, physiotherapist and the patient will decide on the best treatment plan and the time schedule to carry it out.
First consultation also includes a physiotherapy session (such as exercises, manual therapy, massage or other methods).
The first consultation and therapy session is 45 euros and takes 40 minutes. Repeated session with a physiotherapist is 35 euros and lasts for 30 minutes.
You should also make an appointment with a physiotherapist if you have been referred to one by your family physician and the appointment fee is partially compensated by the family physician who provided the referral, through the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. You will then pay your share of cost-sharing. The extent of cost-sharing with a referral by a family physician is 35 euros and 25 euros for recurring therapy sessions.

Please fill in the questionnaire before the first consultation. It will give the physiotherapist a better idea of your health and help to understand and diagnose you more accurately. Please download the questionnaire, fill it in, and then send it to us email@example.com , or alternatively, print it out, fill it in, and take it with you for the consultation.
When one keeps track of their own health, he/she often has a better understanding of their own body than a doctor does.
