Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being. Physiotherapy is science-based and is committed to extending, applying evaluating and reviewing the evidence which underpins its practice and delivery (The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Curriculum Framework, 2002).
Physiotherapy aims to assist patients in restoring their normal balance, encouraging self-management and advising on ways to help facilitate the body's own healing processes.
