What is a physiotherapist? A physiotherapist is working to assess, prevent, relieve and cure health problems. Public health, stress, sports medicine, manual medicine and orthopaedics are some important areas of expertise, but the professional role also includes assessing the patient’s injuries and abilities as part of the investigation of illness. Assessment of motor skills, strength, joint mobility and pain are some of the most common ones.
During my many years as a sportswoman, I had the luck, or perhaps the misfortune, to never go to a physiotherapist. When the body is young and strong, it feels like you can take on the whole world on your own, which you might also be able to, right then and there. However, one thinks very little about the future and that one can actually take care of their body for preventive purposes. This is something that is crystal clear to me today and therefore I give myself a “treat” at least once every two months or once a month, when I exercise harder. Now you are probably thinking, yes, but it is a time and money question also, and certainly, it is a fact. Still, is it not worth taking care of our amazing body here and now, while it is not too late and for it to never be too late? You cannot deny that it is great to have a body that is in harmony with everything you want to do, in your everyday life as well as in your exercising life? A guaranteed investment for the future!
The owner of the centre Fisiosan is the physiotherapist Vicens Marí Mayans. I first came in contact with Vicens during my years as a runner where he helped me out with some minor injuries as well as maintenance during this period of very intense training sessions. The treatments at the centre are personalized and they apply the best techniques and the most advanced technology available in the market. A fusion of technology and physiotherapy to recover and improve physical condition much faster and more effectively. Combination of personalized treatment plan with machines specifically designed for physiotherapy use, which allows more effective treatments and solutions to be implemented. Vicens used to be the head physiotherapist of the football team RCD Mallorca for more than 15 years and was also working together with Rafa Nadal Academy until recently.

Physiotherapist / Osteopath Rocio
Rocio is a physiotherapist and osteopath who combines to work both in a hospital and a private practise at home. She works primarily with trauma injuries, sports injuries and in paediatrics with, for example, child colic and congenital torticollis (CMT). She is an active athlete herself and currently does cross fit, where I first met her, and works a lot with trail runners. Being an athlete herself, she can quickly relate to various sports injuries and help you with strain injuries and much more.
