Science asks and answers questions by making observations and performing experiments. It searches for cause and effect relationships in nature. As a science-based practise, physiotherapy uses facts, theories and hypotheses and tests them against available data.
Physiotherapy aims at promoting, restoring and maintaining physical health. Physiotherapy treatments are formulated after extensive research and observations before being implemented, and the profession is subjected to strict regulation by various governing bodies. Physiotherapists have come to rely more and more on evidence-based practice to ensure that outcomes are consistent throughout the profession and are not just the domain of a select few. Physiotherapists undergo years of rigorous training before they can become licensed to practice and must have a university degree in physiotherapy.
Physiotherapists stay abreast of scientific change through continuing education and our profession is on the cutting edge of scientific advances in health care with a great deal of scientific research being conducted and then implemented by physiotherapists to ensure we are delivering the most up to date and effective treatments for our patients.
