The physiotherapist can assess the problem, arrive at a diagnosis through clinical reasoning and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Most people seek physiotherapy for the treatment of pain, rehabilitation after an injury, surgery, or as a preventative measure. Only members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy who are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) have undergone the required training and passed the necessary examinations to enable them to practice.
