Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of injuries and conditions.
Physiotherapists can help patients to recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness and increase mobility and function. Physiotherapists are also involved in treatment and prevention of disease and disability.
