Physiotherapy is services provided by Physiotherapists to individuals and populations to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan. The service is provided in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, pain, diseases, disorders, conditions and/or environmental factors and with the understanding that functional movement is central to what it means to be healthy. Physiotherapy involves the interaction between the physiotherapist, patients/clients, other health professionals, families, care givers and communities in a process where movement potential is examined/assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to Physiotherapists. Physiotherapists are concerned with identifying and maximizing quality of life and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention and rehabilitation. These spheres encompass physical, psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing. Physiotherapists are qualified and professionally required to undertake a comprehensive examination/assessment of the patient/client /population or needs of a client group, evaluate the findings from the examination/assessment to make clinical judgments regarding patients/clients, formulate a diagnosis, prognosis and plan, provide consultation within their expertise and determine when patients/clients need to be referred to another professional, implement a Physiotherapist intervention/treatment program and education in agreement with the patient/client, evaluate and re-evaluate the outcomes of any interventions/treatments/education, make recommendations for self-management, collaborate with health professionals and other key stakeholders. The Physiotherapist’s extensive knowledge of the body and its movement needs and potential is central to determining strategies for diagnosis and intervention.
