What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is an allied health  profession.  Each allied health  professional brings specialist knowledge and skills that are unique to their  role.  Although they often work alongside  doctors and nurses, allied health professionals make independent assessments  and decisions about treatment.

Physiotherapists provide high quality  health care to patients and clients in a wide range of care situations such as  hospitals, the community, people’s homes and schools.  Some physiotherapists choose to specialise in  a particular area following graduation, such as sports physiotherapy, cardiorespiratory  or paediatrics. All the allied  health professions involve working directly with patients, usually one-to-one  but sometimes with groups of people who have similar health problems.
