Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy 

Physiotherapy (often abbreviated to PT) is a Physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty  that remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention (therapy using mechanical force and movements). It is carried out by physical therapists. In addition to clinical practice, other activities encompassed in the physical therapy profession include research, education, consultation, and administration. In many settings, physical therapy services may be provided alongside, or in conjunction with, other medical services. Physiotherapy is a means of improving the movements of the muscles, joints and limbs. Physiotherapy is a diverse discipline and can subsequently be used to treat a vast range of conditions and treat people of all ages and background.
