Physiotherapy is an ever-adapting and developing healthcare service based on technologic developments and there is an increasing need for qualified personnel in this field. Number of people with congenital or acquired physical disabilities is on the rise and so is the need for qualified personnel who can assist physiotherapists in rehabilitation.
