What is physiotherapy?

"Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential:

  • It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status
  • It is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery
  • The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core."

The above definition is taken from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Curriculum Framework (January 2002). See the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy website for details. Physiotherapists work in a great variety of settings such as orthopaedics, intensive care, paediatrics, mental illness, stroke recovery, occupational health, ergonomics, musculoskeletal treatment in hospitals and private practice, and care of the elderly.

Physiotherapy science and skills

Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession which views movement as central to health and well being. Physiotherapists aim to identify and make the most of movement ability by health promotion, preventive advice, treatment and rehabilitation. Core skills used by chartered physiotherapists include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and the application of electrophysical modalities.

Physiotherapists believe it is of vital importance to take note of psychological, cultural and social factors which influence their clients. They try and bring the patients into an active role to help make the best of independence and function.

Physiotherapy is an autonomous profession (practitioners make their own clinical judgements and treatment choices) and practice reflection.
