Physiotherapists help to rehabilitate and restore function, mobility and quality of life following some impairment due to injury, after an operation or due to disease. They commonly treat sports injuries, back pain, recovery after fractures and orthopedic surgery, and stroke rehabilitation.

Chiropractors use manipulation of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine and other joints and soft tissues to treat mechanical disorders. Techniques used may include ultrasound and laser treatments.
