Sport and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy focuses on the science of movement that aims to restore function in multiple body systems and in individuals with movement dysfunction. To achieve this, physiotherapists use exercise, education, therapeutic modalities, manual therapy and a range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions to help their patients achieve functional goals.
