Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physios use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:
Neurological (stroke, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis etc)
Musculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash, sports injuries, arthritis etc)
Cardiovascular (heart disease, rehab after a heart attack, stroke etc)
Respiratory (asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis etc)
Physiotherapists work in a variety of specialisms in health and social care. Additionally, some Physiotherapists are involved in education, research and service management.
