Overview

The Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) prepares graduates for professional practice as physiotherapists. Graduates of the course are eligible to apply for registration with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia.

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose and treat people with movement problems caused by a wide variety of joint, muscle and nerve disorders. They use a range of drug-free techniques to treat and prevent injuries, and assist their clients to maintain fit and healthy bodies.

In addition to the high-profile sports side of physiotherapy, graduates also practise in roles that contribute significantly to the wider community. For instance, physiotherapy is applied in the management of a wide variety of conditions, including neurological illness such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease, movement disorders in children, rehabilitation after major injury, and recovery following surgery and childbirth. It also plays a central role in the management and prevention of chronic conditions such as asthma.
