What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession (degree-qualified) that takes a whole person approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. Physiotherapists use their knowledge and manual therapy skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body.

Physiotherapy is used to help restore movement and function for someone suffering from injury, illness, pain or disability.

Physiotherapists help people by using movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and offering advice. People of all ages can benefit from Physiotherapy and it is commonly used for:

  • maintaining a healthy body
  • managing pain
  • rehabilitating from injuries
  • preventing long term health problems

The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to get back to what they love doing as quickly as possible.

Who is Physiotherapy useful for?

Almost anyone can benefit from Physiotherapy at any time in their life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injuries, preparing for childbirth, managing long-term medical conditions such as arthritis and in preparing particular sporting events or goals.

At the core of Physiotherapy is patient involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment. This makes Physiotherapy ideal for patients who are interested in understanding and taking an active role in their own recovery. This approach produces the best long-term outcomes for tackling the root cause of any complaint.
