What is Physiotherapy?

What is physiotherapy?

“Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status.

“It is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that under pins and informs its practice and delivery. The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core.”
