They are healthcare professionals who provide customized care to address the physical issues of clients, helping them to heal from injuries and improve their physicality. Physiotherapists can work in hospitals, clinics, offices and in homes to offer private care for clients. Physiotherapists can be affiliated with a clinic, join together to form a joint practice, or they can offer individual one-on-one care. There is the potential for physiotherapist to have a great deal of control of over their schedule and client base, offering both security and a certain amount of career freedom.

During appointments, a physiotherapist will meet with a client to discuss their needs and devise a treatment plan specifically for them. There is also an administrative competent, as physiotherapists need to keep detailed patient records and treatment logs, sometimes also processing insurance claims. Physiotherapists need to maintain a safe and sterile environment, cleaning after every patient and preparing for the next.
