A Physiotherapy degree teaches students how to help and treat the young and old who are suffering from illness, accidents or ageing. Through the use of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise, qualified physiotherapists will help with spine and joint problems, specifically after operations, rehabilitation following sports injuries, strokes and accidents.
Physiotherapy modules study the basic principle of healing, repair and movement analysis in year one, to patient assessment and management in year two. Your final year of study will involve providing an in-depth study on a subject within physiotherapy, plus a greater responsibility in clinical reasoning and decision making.
Physiotherapy graduates will find roles at private practices or companies, the NHS or with sports teams and at sports centres. Specific roles will see you tend to the elderly, while undertaking orthopaedics, obstetrics, paediatrics and sports medicine.
