Their main aim is to improve the quality of life of their patients in order to alleviate pain and restore normalcy. They also have expert knowledge to do away with permanent injury or disease and therefore, lessen the dysfunctional effects.  physiotherapists work in different places like health centers, hospitals, sports clubs as well as rehabilitation centers. They sometimes work alone or maybe with a team of professionals. Their main approach is multi-directional to rehabilitation.
