Physiotherapists (or Physical Therapists) are primary health care providers that use an in-depth understanding of anatomy and how the body works to aid in restoring, maintaining, and maximizing alignment, strength, balance, function, movement, and overall well-being of their clients. Physical therapists use their knowledge and hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury, and disability.
Treatments aim to incorporate aspects of self-management and empowerment to create a rehabilitative or preventative health plan, tailored to the specific needs of each client. Physical therapists can help manage conditions and diseases that are acute or chronic.
