What is Physiotherapy?

physiotherapyIn simple terms, physiotherapists are specialists in knowing the mechanics of the human body.

Physiotherapist are university trained medical professionals who uses natural physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore your well-being so that you can perform and enjoy your chosen sport, work or everyday activities.

Their university training includes a thorough study of the human body, particularly the muscle and joint system. It involves studying anatomy, neuroanatomy, physiology, psychology, medical conditions, musculoskeletal conditions, exercise prescription and electrotherapy.
