At Buryhill we only use Chartered Physiotherapists. So what is a Chartered Physiotherapist? Aren’t all Physiotherapists the same? Well no they are not. A Chartered Physiotherapist is a healthcare professional, trained to exacting standards and regulated by the Health Professions Council. They are experts in the examination of body movement and posture. They also maintain detailed knowledge of injury, disease and the degenerative process.
The combination of these skills place the Chartered Physiotherapist in the ideal position to best assess and treat conditions which cause pain, or diminish physical performance – such as back pain or muscle strains.
In order to become a Chartered Physiotherapist, one must be selected for, then successfully complete a three or four year training course as an undergraduate, then on graduation, a period of often two years as a ‘junior’ physio is generally undertaken, like a probation period.
During this probationary period, and for the rest of the Chartered Physiotherapist’s career, they must undertake continuous professional learning. This process ensures that all Chartered Physiotherapist maintain an extremely high professional standard.
