What is a Physiotherapist?
The role of a physiotherapist involves assessing any patient suffering from physical problems and providing the appropriate treatment. Whether the issues are caused by a recent accident, illness or through old age, a physiotherapist will support and rehabilitate the patient by maximising movement and flexibility to help improve their health and wellbeing.
As well as expertise in the core requirements of physiotherapy – therapeutic exercises, manual treatments and electrophysical therapies – the role also demands an understanding of the mental, social and cultural factors which may be affecting their client. Physiotherapists can also provide more specialised treatments, such as acupuncture or hydrotherapy.
Physiotherapy jobs can involve treating those in need in a number of different areas, including musculoskeletal (muscles, joints and bones), neuromuscular (the brain and nervous system), cardiovascular (blood flow and the heart) and respiratory (breathing organs).
The demand for physiotherapists within hospitals is huge, as most departments can benefit from their involvement. However, physiotherapists are not only required in hospitals, they are also a vital part of ensuring the health and wellbeing of the wider community. It’s not unusual for physiotherapy appointments to be conducted at clients’ homes, local GP surgeries and nursing homes.
The role can see an employee working in areas such as:
To become a physiotherapist within the healthcare sector, you must undertake a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)-approved programme at university, where you will learn the theory and gain hands-on experience through placements. Any potential physiotherapist also needs to be compassionate, patient and have an understanding for the problems their client may be suffering from.
What Does a Physiotherapist Earn?
Salaries start from £21,692 and can rise up to £28,180 based on a 37.5 hour week. However, specialising in a specific field can increase wages up to £35,000, and an advanced physiotherapist or team manager can expect a salary of up to £41,000.
Considering a locum physiotherapy job may also be feasible, if your personal circumstances allow it.
Locum Physiotherapy jobs
Depending on your situation, physiotherapy jobs on a locum basis may be a highly lucrative proposition, as opposed to working in a fixed hospital or surgery role. A locum position allows for a degree of flexibility, as you are not tied down to contracted hours, meaning you can work as and when you wish. As there is such a demand for physiotherapy treatment, taking on a LAT (Locum Appointment for Training) can also provide experience working in a variety of different hospitals and environments – something which could prove invaluable when you wish to move into a permanent position.
Although with a locum physiotherapy job you are your own boss, the benefits need to be weighed up against the security of a permanent role, and whether such a position would suit your circumstances. For example, you would not be eligible for any sick or holiday pay, nor would you be able to claim for maternity or paternity leave.
