Physiotherapy is a profession that helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness, or disability.
Physiotherapists maintain health for patients of all ages, helping to manage pain and prevent disease by promoting movement and exercise and providing manual therapy, education, and advice.
Physiotherapy is a science, research-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. Research is constantly reviewed and evaluated in order to provide the best care and meet clinical standards and national guidelines.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment, and participation in their treatment. This will enable patients to stay in work, participate in any activity that they so wish, and remain independent.
