Background to Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy began originally as an extension of massage therapy in the United Kingdom. Physiotherapists used to work under the supervision of a surgeon in hospitals but as the practice of physiotherapy developed it grew into it’s own separate profession, treating patients with injuries, illnesses or even after surgery. Physiotherapists not only provide massage but also offer ultrasound treatment, medical acupuncture, shockwave therapy, plus exercise routines and advice.
