What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a scientifically-based profession aimed at developing, maintaining and restoring maximum movement and function throughout life. It is a comprehensive treatment approach combining skilled evaluation techniques, 'hands-on' manual therapy, education and exercises to identify and treat muscular, neural, skeletal and respiratory disorders resulting from illness, injury, overuse or ageing. On a physical level, treatment is aimed at optimising the healing process and alleviating pain to aid repair of damaged tissues, while on an emotional level the psychological, social and cultural influences on injury and disability are also dealt with. Full rehabilitation is facilitated through exercise to regain independence and return to work, sport or everyday living with minimal or no dysfunction. As an ongoing focus, physiotherapy is also concerned with health promotion and injury prevention through advice and education.
