Physiotherapists have an important role to play in the prevention & management of obesity.
Obesity leads to restrictions in movement, affecting engagement in physical activity.
Exercise and movement is the keystone of the scope of physiotherapy practice. Along with a holistic, patient centred, and problem solving approach, physiotherapists have advanced knowledge and skills in:
anatomical, physiological, and psychosocial mechanisms of health and disease
assessment and diagnosis
exercise prescription and therapeutic exercise
management of long-term conditions.
Thus, Physiotherapists are ideally suited to address the physical and psychological complexities of obesity. They can provide valuable input and expertise in the multi-disciplinary management of obesity, helping to optimise outcomes and patient experience.
