What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. Physiotherapists help treat physical problems linked to a number of the body's systems, including musculoskeletal – bones, joints and soft tissues, neuromuscular – the brain and nervous system, cardiovascular – the heart and blood circulation, respiratory – the organs that help you breathe, such as the windpipe, voice box and lungs.
