physiotherapyWhat is Physiotherapy? It is a healthcare profession with a science foundation. The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy defines Physio as the following:

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability”.

A more formal definition of physiotherapy comes from the 2002 CSP Curriculum Framework:

It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status.

Physiotherapy is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery.

The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core."
