Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists help people move and participate in life and in their communities, especially when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, disability or disease. Physiotherapists are involved in health promotion, injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. After assessing a patient’s potential for movement and function, the physiotherapist establishes (together with the patient, whanau/family and caregivers) treatment goals designed to restore or develop that potential, and then maintain it. The physiotherapy process involves assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention, treatment or rehabilitation. Physiotherapy is provided in a variety of settings.
