Physiotherapist jobs

With patients of all ages, physiotherapists treat people who present with a diverse variety of physical problems due to illness, injury, disability or ageing. Physiotherapists choose from a wide range of different treatments including manual therapy, movement, exercise and equipment such as ultrasound to assist the rehabilitation process.

The goal of treatment is to restore the body to full function by increasing the patient's strength and mobility. Physiotherapists also offer advice on ways to avoid future injuries. The vast majority of physiotherapists work in NHS trust hospitals. There are other possibilities for employment however, including:

  • Health centres
  • Special schools and children's centres
  • Sports clinics and sport and leisure centres
  • Private practice
  • Voluntary organisations
  • Sports teams
  • Occupational health settings in industry

It is not uncommon for practitioners to work in multiple settings, for example, combining hours at a sports injury clinic with their own private practice. Working on a self-employed basis will require you to consider how to promote yourself - options include giving talks, or running a website - though most important of all will be the personal recommendations that come from satisfied patients.
