Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession focusing on human function and movement to maximize patients’ quality of life. Physiotherapists use physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of patients’ health status. Physiotherapy is science-based, with Chartered Physiotherapists continually applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence available to inform the delivery of treatment.
