Physiotherapy is an interdisciplinary subject and a branch of Medicine & Health. Students taking a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Physiotherapy learn how to help people with physical impairments.
During Physiotherapy courses, students learn notions of Psychology, as well as Reflexology. They use this knowledge, as well as movement, exercises and advice to help patients overcome their disabilities and improve their overall quality of life. Think of a life coach for your body, and you have the general image of a Physiotherapist.
Students also discover how to use and adjust treatment plans and adapt them depending on patients' specific needs. Physical therapy involves many human skills. You will need a lot of patience and understanding as you help people recover.
