What are physiotherapists?

Physiotherapists are experts in movement and human anatomy, and they are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat a range of injuries and physical problems. They can work with people of all ages and backgrounds, helping them to understand their bodies and move better.

Physiotherapists are evidence-informed practitioners, which means they use current research to underpin and guide their treatment approach. This is supported by ongoing professional development and study, which is required to maintain registration, and which means they are always up to date.
