Physiotherapy is also called "physical therapy". It attempts to treat what limits a person's abilities to move and do things in their daily life.
It is the treatment of disease, injury, deformity or disability to improve the quality of life. Physiotherapists use exercise, hands-on technique, patient education and various modalities.
Physiotherapy has three main categories which are orthopedics, neurophysiotherapy, and cardiorespiratory physiotherapy. Sports physiotherapists specialise in the strains and injuries caused to sportspeople.
