What is Physiotherapy

Making moving part of life

Let us break it down

What does a Physiotherapist do?

A physiotherapist, also known as a physical therapist, is a healthcare professional who helps people to restore and maintain their physical function, mobility, and strength. They work with individuals who have physical injuries, illnesses, or disabilities that affect their ability to move and function properly.

Physiotherapists help their clients by assessing their physical abilities and developing personalized treatment plans to help them improve their movement, reduce pain, and prevent future injury. They use a variety of interventions such as exercises, manual therapy, and electrical stimulation to help their clients regain or improve their physical abilities.

Physiotherapists also work with individuals who have chronic conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, and respiratory problems, helping them to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. They collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as doctors and occupational therapists, to ensure comprehensive care for their clients.

Sarah’s story

Her background:

Sarah is a 32-year-old woman with cerebral palsy who is an NDIS participant. She has difficulty with mobility and often experiences pain and muscle stiffness in her legs, which makes it difficult for her to stand and walk for long periods.

Her Assessment:

The physiotherapist conducted an initial assessment of Sarah’s mobility and identified areas that needed improvement. They found that Sarah’s hip muscles were tight and weak, which was affecting her ability to move her legs properly. The physiotherapist also found that Sarah’s posture was poor, which was causing strain on her back muscles.

Her Treatment:

The physiotherapist developed a personalized treatment plan for Sarah, which included exercises to strengthen her hip muscles and improve her posture. They used a combination of manual therapy techniques such as massage and stretching to relieve her muscle stiffness and improve her range of motion. The physiotherapist also worked with Sarah to develop a walking program, which included using mobility aids such as a walking frame and practicing techniques to reduce her pain and fatigue.

Her Outcome:

Over the course of several weeks, Sarah’s mobility and function improved significantly. She was able to stand and walk for longer periods without experiencing pain or fatigue. Her posture also improved, and she was able to maintain a better position while sitting and standing. Sarah was delighted with the progress she had made and felt more confident in her ability to move around independently.


The physiotherapist’s treatment plan helped Sarah to overcome her mobility limitations and improve her quality of life. By addressing her muscle tightness, weakness, and poor posture, the physiotherapist helped Sarah to move better and with less pain. This case study highlights the important role that physiotherapists play in helping NDIS participants to achieve their goals and maximize their independence.
