The Department of Physiotherapy provides services that develop, maintain and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability.
Physiotherapy can help people at any stage of life when movement and function are compromised by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors – taking account of physical, psychological, emotional and social wellbeing. We work in the health spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention and rehabilitation.
