WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession that helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future. Physiotherapists consider the body and mind as a whole, rather than just focusing on the individual aspects of an injury or illness. At the core of treatment is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and shared decision making in reaching their own goals.
