Physiotherapy is an ACTIVE recovery approach, and Physical Therapy is more PASSIVE relief approach. WHY? Physio or physiotherapy has been considered to be more effective than physical therapy because there is less emphasis on passive modalities like heat, ice or ultrasound so it gets to the ROOT CAUSE of the problem causing the pain generator to shut off faster and with long term results. Physiotherapy is the term used in Europe and Australia for Physical Therapy and there are many styles and philosophies of care. Physiotherapy is more consistent and follows a rigid set of guidelines and classification for clinical pattern recognition of neuro-musculoskeletal imbalance in the system
