Physiotherapists assess all aspects of movement, including joint mobility, soft tissue integrity, and systematic muscle co-contractions. As human movement specialists, they have the skill set to rehabilitate injuries from trauma, manage and prevent disease symptoms, and educate regarding general body health. Their treatment approach focuses on identifying problem areas, using manual therapy to regain movement, strengthen and stabilize muscles through exercise, and use electrical-physical modalities to decrease pain and improve function. The scope of physiotherapy can expand beyond the typical treatment techniques, with continuing education courses adding skills of neuro-proprioceptive taping, dry needling, acupuncture, manipulation, child development, and much more.
