The majority of my knowledge I gained by studying Physiotherapy at the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, and later ﬁnishing courses for physiotherapists, among others PNF, Orthopedic Medicine OMI Global, McKenzie MTD. Last years of my professional life I spent as a physiotherapist at the Department of Neurological Rehabilitation in Konstancin near Warsaw. Most of my work was with patients with various diseases of the nervous system. Thanks to my efforts to obtain the PNF instructor title, I have the privilege to establish contacts with physiotherapists from various places around the world. It gives me the opportunity to learn about the brilliance and shadows of our profession from a different, often distant, perspective. I’m passionate about social media. I run a physiotherapy fanpage Fizjopozytywni on Facebook. It associates physiotherapy enthusiasts. I share there novelties found on the Web, as well as post my own articles and videos. It is my great dream that the phrase „Polish physiotherapist” among the international environment will be synonymous with the words „very good physiotherapist”.
