Physiotherapist

Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential.

Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of health settings such as musculoskeletal, intensive care, mental illness, stroke recovery, occupational health, and care of the elderly.

All physiotherapists working within the NHS (UK) will be registered with the regulatory body for physiotherapists: the Health Professions Council (or HPC).

If you opt for private treatment, make sure you see a chartered and/or registered physiotherapist/physical therapist. This guarantees that:

  • their qualification is properly recognised
  • they are governed by a professional code of conduct
  • they are covered by professional liability insurance
  • Please check that the physiotherapist you see (if in the UK) has:

    • either one of the following sets of initials after their name: MCSP (Member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) or FCSP (Fellow of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy)
    • and/or is a registered physiotherapist/physical therapist.
