What is Physiotherapy and why choose a Chartered Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapy is a treatment aimed at improving or restoring movement in order to increase health and well-being. Physiotherapy focuses not just on rehabilitation, but also injury prevention and promotion of health and fitness.

Chartered Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability.

A Chartered Physiotherapist will complete a full time degree. This will include 1000 hours of clinical placement in a hospital, primary care or community setting prior to qualification.
