Also known as physical therapy, physiotherapy is specialized field in healthcare that aims to help individuals with limitations in functional mobility, usually brought about by musculoskeletal issues.

In general, the objectives of physiotherapy are to reduce pain and discomfort, improve mobility or range of motion, regain muscular strength, and improve functional ability. This is achieved through the use of appropriate exercises and different modalities or tools available in this medical filed.
