Physiotherapists work with patients to identify and improve their movement and function. They help promote their patients’ health and wellbeing, and assist the rehabilitation process by developing and restoring body systems. They devise and review treatment programmes, comprising manual therapy, massage, movement, therapeutical exercise and the application of technological equipment, e.g. ultrasound. Physiotherapists also provide advice on how to avoid injury.
