What does a Physiotherapist do?

Through an adequately designed regime, physiotherapists help develop and recuperate body movement so the patient can carry out daily activities independently and for as long as possible. They can help you heal holistically, manage the disease and improve your athletic ability and active lifestyle.

Their goal is to help you overcome physical traumas caused by accidents, diseases, aging, health conditions, and disorders through certain exercises, massages, lifestyle activities, stretching, etc.

They also take into account your emotional and psychological wellbeing, the very reason we call it holistic i.e. whole-body approach. They can not only help treat and rehabilitate but prevent and educate.
