What is a Physiotherapist?


You may have been told to see a Physio by your GP, health professional, friend or relative. But what does a Physiotherapist do and what benefits will you get when you go to see one?!

Physiotherapy or physical therapy uses PHYSICAL techniques to help promote, maintain and restore physical function to people who may have been affected by injury, illness or disability.

A Physiotherapist is a Degree educated professional. All practising Physiotherapists must be registered with the HCPC (Health Care and Professional Council). All the Physiotherapists that work for Physio-Flex are Chartered Physiotherapists, and members of the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapists). To qualify as a Chartered Physiotherapist means that in addition to their degree they have undergone further professional development, training and professional practice. To keep their registration up-to-date there are strict criteria for Physiotherapists to provide evidence of their ongoing learning and skills to make sure that they provide the best care for their clients throughout their full working life. At Physio-Flex every Physiotherapist undertakes 4-5 hours of training per week and this investment in their training ensures our clients receive the best advice and hands-on therapy for safe, speedy recovery and improvement.
