Physical therapy, also known as physiotherapy, is a healthcare discipline that focuses on restoring and improving physical function, mobility, and quality of life through exercise, manual therapy, and other therapeutic techniques. It is commonly used to rehabilitate individuals with injuries, disabilities, or chronic conditions, aiming to reduce pain, improve strength and flexibility, and enhance overall physical well-being.

In terms of patient engagement and satisfaction, one topic that often surfaces among professionals in this field is should you offer clients a free first therapy session? This concept can provide potential clients with a first-hand experience of the therapeutic approach, potentially leading to more confident decisions about their care pathway.
