What is Physiotherapy?
The holistic approach to healthcare that aims to restore function and movement in individuals affected by illness, injury, and disability is called physiotherapy. Physiotherapy can also help reduce pain and stiffness, repair soft tissue damage, enhance mobility, and improve the patient’s overall functions and life quality. Physiotherapy is provided by regulated and specially-trained practitioners called physiotherapists. With the use of evidence-based care and advanced techniques, physiotherapists diagnose, assess, treat, and prevent a vast range of movement disorders and health conditions.
Physiotherapy also extends to acute care, rehabilitation, health promotion, injury prevention, functional mobility maintenance, occupational health, chronic disease management, dietary and exercise management, and patient and carer education.
