Physiotherapy - Profession specific descriptor for registered professionals and support workers

As experts in movement, the Physiotherapy workforce understands that physical activity plays a significant role in the prevention of many of the long-term conditions that are costly to health and care services and impact on the lives of an ever-increasing number of people.

However physical activity is not the only factor contributing to the increasing prevalence of long-term conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, respiratory disease, and malnutrition. The Physiotherapy workforce is already talking to people in their care about other parts of their lifestyle that contribute to the development of ill-health such as physical activity, smoking, alcohol consumption, and loneliness.
