Physiotherapists ("physios") work in a wide variety of health settings. They combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different 'systems' of the body. In particular they treat:
§ neuromuscular (brain and nervous system)
§ musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones)
§ cardiovascular and
§ respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology).
