What is a Physiotherapist?
A Physiotherapist is a an Allied Health professional who works in partnership with their patients to help people get better and stay well. Physiotherapists also work closely with GPs and other clinicians to plan and manage treatment.
Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders. Physiotherapists help repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.
The National Health Co-op offers accredited Physiotherapy sessions for treatment of a wide variety of injuries and chronic conditions.
