Physiotherapists are primary, regulated health care professionals who are qualified to assess and treat musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory conditions. They are university educated and assist people of all ages and lifestyles to gain and maintain their desired level of function. Physiotherapists begin their treatment with a thorough assessment which includes a subjective history and an evaluation of pain, movement patterns, muscle strength, joint function, reflexes and sensation. Based on the assessment, a diagnosis is established and treatment options are discussed. Once consent is obtained treatment is initiated.
