From the outset as a child, I had only viewed trips to the physio as a tad serious compared to the ones with a GP. However, experiencing my own muscle and joint pain playing sport, my physio appointments have become just as important. I now deeply appreciate the extent to which a physio therapist will care for their client and not only treat them in sessions but conduct research on their condition outside of work too and use many alternative methods to resolve the client’s problems.

If clients such as myself regularly check up with the physio and follow through with instructions given by them, we should be able to heal in due time with their help. Therefore, I think that the need for physiotherapists in Australia is just as influential to a person’s health than any other institute.
