More on Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists help restore body’s function and movement when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Generally, physiotherapists utilize exercise, manual therapy, movement, education, advice and electrophysical agents. General public might think physiotherapist only helps people with back pain, neck pain, injuries, etc.

In fact, physiotherapy associates with different systems of the body, for example:
1. Neurological (stroke, Parkinson’s disease)
2. Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, cardiac rehabilitation)
3. Respiratory (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, cystic fibrosis)
4. Musculoskeletal (back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, arthritis, rehabilitation after surgery)
5. Pediatric (developmental delay, cerebral palsy)
6. Women’s health (incontinence, bladder/ bowel dysfunction)
