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.
