Our physiotherapists help people with disability maintain or improve their movement and mobility to maximise function and participation.
What does a physiotherapist do?
Physiotherapists are experts in the structure of the human body and its movement. They work to improve people’s physical wellbeing and treat movement disorders through assessment, exercise, education and assistive technology.
