GPs refer patients to physiotherapists more than any other health professionals.
Physiotherapist are first contact practitioner’s, which means you don’t need a doctor’s referral to see one, but they often work with doctors and other allied health professionals to help achieve optimal patient outcomes. In addition to doctor’s, physiotherapists receive referrals from surgeons for post surgery rehab, personal trainers to work on a clients form through pain and even dentists to assist their patients with jaw pain.
