Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.
Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. Whether it is pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury, like a sprained ankle, or management of chronic conditions, such as arthritis, a physiotherapist can help. But physiotherapy is not limited to the rehabilitation of injuries and the effects of disease or disability. A physiotherapist also provides education and advice for health promotion, disease, and injury prevention.
