Bachelor of Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is concerned with the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health and the prevention of disability, in people of all ages. Physical Therapists optimise potential ability, physical function, independence and quality of life through rehabilitation practices.
To achieve this, Physical Therapists require an extensive understanding of physical, structural and physiological aspects of human form and movement, as well as factors relating to human functioning and the acquisition of skill.
Physical Therapy often involves promotion of motor development and coordination, physical methods to control pain, therapeutic exercise for impaired muscle systems, assisting in the physical management of the cardio-respiratory system, or improving balance and motor control for better performance and function.
