Areas of Practice of Physiotherapy
The human body is a complex system made up of hundreds of bones and joints as well as miles of muscles and ligaments all working in balance. When accident or illness affects your body, your physiotherapist, a university-trained medical professional, can restore mobility.
Working closely with physicians, physiotherapists help people in hospitals and clinics. You'll also ﬁnd physiotherapists in neighbourhood schools, public health units, home and long-term care programs and sports medicine clinics.

Physiotherapists treat the whole body and with ongoing clinical research, physiotherapists continue to develop techniques to prevent and treat physical injury and disorder.
