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