Physiotherapy is a holistic treatment approach to help people who may have been affected by injury, disability or illness. There are several ways that physiotherapy can be used to help a person, depending on the nature of the problem and the part of the body affected.
The aim is to help restore mobility, reduce or manage pain and facilitate recovery following an injury or operation or a specific illness. Anyone can benefit from physiotherapy, no matter what age they are.
Education, awareness, empowerment and active participation of the patient are crucial elements of the physiotherapy process.
