Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a clinical health science and profession that aims to rehabilitate and improve a person’s ability to move and function. Physiotherapists utilise their expertise in anatomy and physiology to assess and treat people with a variety of health conditions. They use objective assessments to develop an evidence based treatment programme tailored to individual clients. Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.
