Physiotherapists have advanced understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well and how to restore mobility.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists manage and prevent many physical problems caused by illness, disease, sport and work related injury, aging, and long periods of inactivity.
