Where would I be without physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists don't just help with recovery. They help people get the most out of life. That's why GPs recommend more patients to physiotherapists than any other health professional.
This audio piece forms the radio component of the APA's National Consumer Campaign. The campaign aims to highlight to consumers the breadth of physiotherapy and why it should be chosen ahead of other treatment options. #choosephysio
