Introduction

Physiotherapy uses biomechanics, manual therapy, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy to treat physical impairments, and promote physical mobility and function.

The three different types of physiotherapy are:

  • Musculoskeletal/orthopaedic – used in the treatment of problems such as sprains, strains, back pain, arthritis, posture problems, and sport or workplace injuries
  • Neurological – used in the treatment of disorders such as stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury and multiple sclerosis.
  • Cardiothoracic – used in the treatment of asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and other cardio-respiratory disorders.

Each patient’s treatment is designed to suit their specific needs and a physiotherapist may choose from different types of therapies such as:

  • Manual therapies – includes joint manipulation and mobilisation, manual resistance training and stretching.
  • Exercise programs – includes muscle strengthening, posture re-training, cardiovascular stretching and training.
  • Electrotherapy techniques – includes Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), laser therapy, diathermy and ultrasound.

  • The need for a view or inspection of a location
  • The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
  • Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
  • Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
