Physiotherapy is a therapeutic health profession concerned with enhancing mobility and quality of life by using clinical reasoning to deliver the most suitable treatment for an injury or condition. Physiotherapists help people gain as much movement and physical independence as possible so they can resume their normal job or lifestyle.


Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat people with movement problems. They also deliver patient education and help people avoid injuries and maintain a fit, healthy body.


What are the costs involved?

How does physiotherapy work?

Physiotherapy combines clinical expertise with evidence based research. Physiotherapists are trained to assess the underlying causes of joint, muscle and nerve disorder, educate patients about managing their condition, and advise ways to prevent pain and injury. Often, a personal exercise program is prescribed.


Physiotherapists use a wide range of drug-free techniques to relieve pain, restore function and movement, and prevent further problems.


As a profession, physiotherapists work within a framework of empowering the individual, carer or the community through education and the promotion of self-management of health and wellbeing. Physiotherapy is practised in a wide range of settings, including hospitals, health centres, homes, workplaces, schools and residential care facilities.
