What is it?
Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is an understanding of how and why movement and function take place. Physiotherapists diagnose injury, disease, disorders, or lifestyle on movement and function and aim to enhance or restore function of many of the body's systems. Their approach incorporates a broad range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions and aids.
