Why do you love physiotherapy?
No two days are the same. Physiotherapy allows you to work with people from all ages and demographics. It continuously challenges you to adapt to your patient and their perception of pain or injury. As physios we are always continuing our professional learning. Whether it be a direct result from a patient’s presentation, or our own independent study, we always have the opportunity to grow our knowledge. It is also extremely rewarding seeing positive patient outcomes.
