What does a Physiotherapist do?
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability.
They combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different ‘systems’ of the body. In particular they treat:
- neuromuscular (brain and nervous system)
- musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones)
- cardiovascular and
- respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology)
