Physiotherapy is a profession that promotes wellness, mobility and independent function in individuals and the population. Here you will find highly trained physiotherapists that treat and prevent problems caused by pain, illness, disability, ageing, prolonged inactivity and injury caused by accidents, sports and work-related. In Zambia, the most common conditions managed by physiotherapists include painful conditions such as arthritis, neck and back pain, incontinence, trauma (accidents), stroke, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injuries, heart problems as well as lung problems. Their treatment methods include exercises, electrotherapy, manual therapy, education and advice.
Physiotherapy is a drug-free health care practice that improves and maintains functional independence and physical performance, prevents and manages pain, treats physical impairments as well as disabilities. Physiotherapists provide assessments, treatment and education for many health problems to ensure a quality lifestyle. They can recommend the best way to treat problems with your muscles, bones and joints, circulatory, respiratory or nervous system and can also advise you on ways to prevent potential health problems.
