A Brief History of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy's origins date back to 1813 in Sweden for the treatment of gymnasts with massage manipulation and exercise. Physiotherapy as a profession was founded by four nurses in 1894 as the Society or Trained Masseuses. By 1900 it was recognised as a professional organisation and later in 1920 was awarded a royal charter, forming the Chartered Society of Massage and Medical Gymnastics. By 1944 the society became the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
"Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession concerned with human function, movement and maximising potential (CSP)". As a professional body it is regulated by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the Health & Carers Profession Council (HCPC).
As each case is unique, a physiotherapist clinical diagnosis is based upon an assessment of previous medical history, work & lifestyle. It also takes into account psychological, cultural & social factors. Physiotherapy training is comprehensive and physiotherapists’ skills are endorsed by GPs. This means that you can trust that you will receive a skilled and informed diagnosis of your problem.
