Physiotherapy assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means.
Physiotherapy aims to restore proper functioning to the body or, in the case of permanent disease or injury, to reduce the impact of any dysfunction.
Physiotherapists use manual therapies, exercise programs and electrotherapy techniques to treat musculoskeletal conditions (e.g. arthritis, sports injuries or back pain), neurological conditions (e.g. stroke, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries) and cardiothoracic conditions (e.g. emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis).
Physios are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem and help you understand what is wrong. Treatment plans will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.

Some physiotherapists work alone, while others work with a team of health care providers to offer a multifaceted approach to your rehabilitation.
Your doctor may be able to refer you to a physiotherapist, and other health professionals may also be able to suggest a suitable physiotherapy service for your needs.
