The History of Physiotherapy
During World War 1, medical professionals were exposed to a world of new injuries created by gunshots, grenades, gas and modern warfare weapons. While the advancements in medicine improved the survival rate from these vicious injuries, the need for specialised nurses to help soldiers return to civilian life increased. As a result, rehabilitation nurses learned more about physical rehabilitation, creating the field now known as physiotherapy.
