Expectations of physiotherapy

...do people expect physical activity advice, general health advice or physical interventions?

Current evidence-based recommendations for physical activity suggest that adults should participate in muscle strengthening exercise for all major muscle groups twice weekly, and either 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity weekly.

However, many people do not meet these recommendations. Physiotherapists are skilled and qualified to help people to improve their physical activity levels, as well as providing treatment for specific clinical conditions.
