PhysioJob Description:

Physiotherapy is a health care profession that is primarily involved in physical rehabilitation and optimisation of the human body. It is a very hands-on and active career, where massage and manipulation techniques are used to improve the lives of patients. Unlike most health care professionals, physiotherapists have the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with their patients, because rehabilitation can take weeks and even years to complete.
