What is a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are trained health professionals who can assist with a multitude of concerns including diagnosing and managing injuries, pain and mobility difficulties.


Physiotherapists are able to diagnose your injury, assist you to maintain your independence and prevent further injury. Physiotherapists will work with you to develop goals and utilise assessments to develop and provide an individualised treatment program for you targeting your concerns to work towards your goals.


Physiotherapists work within a multidisciplinary team to best manage many conditions through holistic, evidence-based care.
