Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
A Chartered Physiotherapist is trained to understand the normal anatomy and physiology of the body and to recognise a range of conditions that respond to treatment. Examples of this include back and neck pain, joint and muscle disorders, injuries to ligaments and tendons.
A Chartered Physiotherapist has a detailed understanding of bio-mechanics, particularly the strains and stresses that fall on people at work. An important part of the solution for many disorders may require an understanding of how movement and postural habits can be changed to reduce the strain on the joints and soft tissues.
Physiotherapists gain an understanding of the different types of fitness required across a range of sports and hobbies. When an injury occurs, it is important to understand and treat the cause of the problem but also to advise on the return to full fitness. Your Physiotherapist will work with you and with your coach if there are specific skills required for your sport or activity.
