What is Physiotherapy

What is Physiotherapy?Physiotherapists are trained to detect, evaluate and improve movement and function of the human body with particular attention to the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardio-respiratory systems. The physiotherapist uses in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and bio-mechanics in order to detect the underlying problems.

A treatment plan is then identified with consideration to the individual's condition, lifestyle and their goals. Treatment techniques and modalities are often then used in conjunction with a specifically designed home exercise plan in order to achieve the maximum benefit.

Some of the treatment techniques and modalities that musculoskeletal physiotherapy employs can include:

Joint mobilisations
Spinal mobilisations / manipulations;
Trigger point releases;
Postural correction;
Resistance exercises;
Muscle stretching;
Advice and education;
Acupuncture;
Ultrasound;
Support taping;
Home exercise programs.

Physiotherapy is a science based healthcare profession, the practitioners of which are autonomous (i.e. they make their own clinical judgements and treatment choices). Clinical reasoning is used in a problem solving approach using evidence based practice (i.e. using research of theories and techniques that have been proven to work).

Chartered Society of Physiotherapy definition of "physiotherapy":-

'It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological, and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status. Physiotherapy 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'.
