Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with identifying human function, maximising quality of life and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking into account variations in health status.
‘Movement’ is the core expertise of physiotherapy, and it helps to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different systems of the body. In particular, they treat neuromuscular (brain and nervous system), musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones), cardiovascular and respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology). Physiotherapy practice is characterised by reflective behaviour and systematic clinical reasoning, contributing to and underpinning a problem-solving approach to patient-centric care.
Scope Of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists provide services in the private and public sectors in hospitals, rehabilitation centres, residential care facilities, clinics, schools and work settings. Independently or in multi-disciplinary teams, Physiotherapists assess patients and then plan and deliver treatment and education programmes in partnership with patients and their families.
They are involved in screening and prevention programmes, health education and research. They are often engaged as consultants to education, health and social agencies concerned with the delivery of healthcare. Physical therapists work within the ethical principles detailed in a code of ethics published by their professional organisation. They work at all stages of healthcare, including prevention, education, intervention , rehabilitation, and treatment. They may work in a clinic, hospital, nursing home, or rehabilitation facility, or they may go to the patient’s home.
