The physiotherapist addresses the therapeutic care from a global perspective by taking into account all its aspects. One of the main objectives of physical therapy is to reduce pain. Therefore the physiotherapist develops physical activities from an -educational-therapeutic perspective in order to rehabilitate and to improve physical functions in various systems with specific exercises. These exercises will be prescribed according to each patient needs by organizing educational and therapeutic sessions based on their progress. The main objective of this review is to present the benefits of educational and therapeutic programs in physiotherapy as tools against pain. In this review we have included all the papers found in PubMed, ENFISPO and PEDro that meet the search parameters. The final considerations show that the health education given by the physiotherapist tends to improve the health and the patients quality of life.
