Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.
 
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise and manual therapy. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

Physios use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:
 
Neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's)
‚ÄčNeuro-musculo-skeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis)Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
Respiratory (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis).
 
Physiotherapists work in a variety of specialisms in health and social care. You can benefit from them at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event or other common musculoskeletal conditions. Additionally, some physiotherapists are involved in education, research and service management.
 
Physical therapists have different titles in different countries: in many countries, they are called physiotherapists. Some countries have their own version of the word physical therapist, such as kinesiologist. They are all part of the same profession. Physical therapists provide services that develop, maintain and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability. They can help people at any stage of life, when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.
 
Physical therapists help people maximise their quality of life, looking at physical, psychological, emotional and social wellbeing. They work in the health spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. They are qualified and professionally required to:
  • undertake a comprehensive examination/assessment of the patient/client or needs of a client group
  • evaluate the findings from the examination/assessment to make clinical judgments regarding patients/clients
  • formulate a diagnosis, prognosis and plan
  • provide consultation within their expertise and determine when patients/clients need to be referred to another healthcare professional
  • implement a physical therapist intervention/treatment programme
  • determine the outcomes of any interventions/treatments
  • make recommendations for self-management.
