About the Department

Physiotherapy is a treatment that uses special exercises, rubbing and heat to treat medical conditions and problems with muscles. Physiotherapists are concerned with identifying and maximising quality of life and movement potential within the spheres of health promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention and rehabilitation. It includes physical, psychological, emotional, & social well-being.

The scope of practice involves interaction with other health professionals, families, care givers and communities. Physiotherapy also involves health education extending from the patient and care-givers to groups, such as health care workers in the community, industrial workers, school learners and teachers.

Our mission is to train and educate students from disadvantaged communities who will become proactive and reflective physiotherapists providing high standards of ethical practice, pursue relevant research and committed to a lifelong learning with emphasis on community engagement using the family and community centred-approach.
