What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. It is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and receiving the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery, (CSP January 2002).
All Physiotherapists in the NHS are Chartered and are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (MCSP) and the Health Professions Council (HCP). This means they have at least 3-4 years training and have achieved a high standard to become members of the CSP.
Chartered Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of health settings such as musculoskeletal outpatients, intensive care, mental illness, stroke, surgery, occupational health and care of the elderly, children's services plus many more.
