Scope of practice Physiotherapists plan and administer physiotherapy/ rehabilitation treatments independently and also being a part of the multidisciplinary team. The minimum education requirement is often a baccalaureate degree or postgraduate degrees in Physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is an essential part of the health and community/welfare services delivery system.

Physiotherapists are guided by their own code of ethical principles. Thus, they may be concerned with any of the following purposes:
1. Promoting the health and well-being of individuals and the general public/society, emphasizing the importance of physical activity and exercise.
2. Preventing impairments, activity limitations, participatory restrictions and disabilities in individuals at risk of altered movement behaviors due to health or medically related factors, socio-economic stressors, environmental factors and lifestyle factors.
3. Providing interventions/treatment to restore integrity of body systems essential to movement, maximize function and recuperation, minimize incapacity, and enhance the quality of life, independent living and workability in individuals and groups of individuals with altered movement behaviors resulting from impairments, activity limitations, participatory restrictions and disabilities
