Know your Physiotherapist!

Useful questions you may wish to ask when looking for a physiotherapist:

Are they Chartered (MCSP) and a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)?

The government has produced a register to regulate health professions and check qualifications. It is now unlawful for someone to call themselves a physiotherapist and not be on the register, to check if your physio is registered log onto www.hpc­ or phone 020 7582 0866.

How long have they been qualified?

It takes three years of study at either a university or physiotherapy school, combined with supervised hospital placements to gain the basic degree (or Grad.Dip.Phys) qualification. After qualifying, many physiotherapists chose to work in the NHS in graded positions for a few years, taking additional post­graduate qualifications in their chosen speciality.

Do they offer acupuncture treatment?

After doing their acupuncture training, some physiotherapists chose to join the 'AACP' ­ The Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapists. To be on this register, the physiotherapist has to continue to do regular training courses in acupuncture.

Do they participate in 'CPD' ­ continued professional development?

This is encouraged in a lot of professions now, in order to learn new skills, keep abreast of new research and reflect on current practice.
