  • Written by Joseph Webb

The treatment that is given to patients suffering from injury, disease or any type of disorder is known as physiotherapy. The trained and qualified person who does this treatment is called physiotherapist. They basically depend upon physical methods like exercise, massage rather than medication or surgery to treat their patients. There is a misconception that physiotherapists only work with back related problems and sports injuries. They are very much trained health professionals who treat patients suffering from different types of physical ailments. Their main aim is to improve the quality of life of their patients in order to alleviate pain and restore normalcy. They also have expert knowledge to do away with permanent injury or disease and therefore, lessen the dysfunctional effects.  physiotherapists work in different places like health centers, hospitals, sports clubs as well as rehabilitation centers. They sometimes work alone or maybe with a team of professionals. Their main approach is multi-directional to rehabilitation.
