What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the treatment and prevention of injury and disease by natural means. The aim of physiotherapy is to help alleviate pain, restore normal movement and function and help return the body to its natural balanced state without chemical intervention. But it doesn’t just stop there, as well as relieving symptoms, physiotherapy teaches long term self management of musculo-skeletal problems enabling people to prevent further episodes.
Physiotherapist in the UK should be registered with the Health Care Professions Council and ideally with The Chartered Society Of Physiotherapy . This will ensure that their practice is up to date and adheres to the standards set by these governing bodies.
