About the course

Physiotherapy plays an essential role in helping people to achieve optimal physical function and healthy lifestyles. Physiotherapists treat people of all ages and from all sorts of backgrounds – they might have a painful back, occupational injury, cystic fibrosis, or have recently given birth. They could be recovering from an accident, a sporting injury, or maybe they have undergone heart surgery. Physiotherapists are educated to assess, treat, and prevent this vast range of physical limitations and dysfunction. By using therapy such as exercises, and manual and electrotherapeutic techniques, physiotherapists are able to assist their patients to lead independent, healthy, and fulfilling lives.
