What is Physiotherapy?
Just what is Physiotherapy?
The World Confederation of Physical Therapy describes physiotherapists as: “experts in developing and maintaining people’s ability to move and function throughout their lives” and that physios have “an advanced understanding of how the body moves and what keeps it from moving well, they promote wellness, mobility and independence”.
“Physios"for short are sometimes known as Physical Therapists in other parts of the world and provide treatment and preventative services for a range of health issues such as illness and disease, disability, injuries that occur during physical activity, sport or in the workplace as well as ageing and sedentariness.
