Introduction

Physical Therapies includes both physiotherapy and soft tissue therapy. Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, and prevent, treat and rehabilitate injuries. Soft tissue therapy assesses, treats and manages soft tissue injury, pain and dysfunction, primarily of the neuromuscular skeletal system. Massage is the most common form of soft tissue therapy.
