Physiotherapists are highly qualified health professionals who work in partnership with their patients to help people get better and stay well.

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders.

Physiotherapy helps repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life .

A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
