We know what you’re probably thinking… Physiotherapy is traditionally thought of as a very ‘hands on’ profession, so how can Physiotherapy be performed online?

Well, as an evidence-based profession, Physiotherapy is moving away from its reliance on passive treatment techniques, such as manual therapy and the use of complex machinery, to a more active approach focusing on exercise prescription and progression, lifestyle modification advice, patient education and rehabilitation programs in order to achieve the best results.

This new active approach is strongly supported by scientific research and has been demonstrated to provide the best patient outcomes. This approach converts extremely well to the online format and has been the foundation of PhysioAdvisor’s evidence based approach since we launched our website in 2008. To date, we’ve already had more than 40 million visitors using our content to assist with their injury management and it is our mission to help many more!
