What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat, and work 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.

Physiotherapy can help speed up the healing process, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. A physiotherapist can also help prevent further injury by working with patients to plan the most appropriate treatment for their condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
