What is a Physiotherapist?
A Physiotherapist is a highly skilled, science based, medically trained health professional. Physiotherapists undertake a university qualification. Their work involves assisting people with health issues across a broad range of fields, from stroke rehabilitation to post-operative care to children to private practice. In a private practice setting, Physiotherapists deal with sports injuries, spinal complaints, work injuries and arthritis. Physiotherapists will carefully and methodically assess your injuries/complaints and set a treatment plan in place that includes hands on treatment, advice on healing, advice on work and hobbies, exercise prescription and more.
