We build community
Physiopedia is an international community built knowledge sharing website.Every month over 1.5 million individuals from nearly every country in the world use Physiopedia. 80% of these individuals are physiotherapists or physical therapists (includes students and assistants), the other 20% are other health care professionals and the general health seeking public. That's around 1 million physiotherapy professionals using Physiopedia to gain knowledge every month! ~ Google Analytics Data
With a team of over 50 active volunteers at any one time.Caution, joining the team at Physiopedia could irreversibly change your professional life. I would strongly recommend to do the same for supporting the development of our global physiotherapy community. ~ Andrea Sturm, Physiotherapist, Austria.
By sharing our knowledge
The Physiopedia team present their impact and work at national and international conferences and events.I feel exceptionally proud when members of the Physiopedia team present our work at conferences, especially as I see them grow into leaders within our profession ~ Rachael Lowe, Physiopedia President.
We work with partners to educate their workforce...The International Committee of the Red Cross is proud to have supported four free online courses developed and delivered by Physiopedia on lower limb amputee rehabilitation, managing children with cerebral palsy, clubfoot and wheelchair service delivery. ~ Barbara Rau ICRC
...and topic specialists to share their knowledge.
I thoroughly enjoy working with Physiopedia. They’re a business with a heart. Knowing my teaching is being accessed globally in less developed countries is a really big plus for me. They’re consistent, fun, plain talkers and they have a really cool website AND they do all the boring admin things for you! They even edited my videos to make it look like I know what I’m talking about. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. ~ Chris Worsfold, Neck Pain Specialist, UK
Our partnership with Physiopedia allows us to reach a global physiotherapy audience beyond what we ever thought was possible ~ Jason Giesbrecht, Rehabilitation Leadership Specialist, Canada

And online courses at Physioplus
There are over 500 hours of online learning at Physioplus being accessed by over 50,000 members all over the world.I love Physioplus because it helps in my professional development and the development of the profession I love! The courses are all well made and the website is user friendly. Keep up the good work!
I have really enjoy the interactive nature of the courses and feel my clinical learning has accelerated! The presenters are great and I feel membership is really worthwhile.
My first experience of learning with Physioplus I was impressed by the variety of information all available on my phone giving me freedom and flexibility to learn when and where I want.
To help physios be better
We love hearing the stories of how Physiopedia helps clinicians deliver improved services.In our department we have 12 computers, one of those computers is a dedicated Physiopedia computer. ~ Bellarmine Graduate, USA.
Without fail Physiopedia is always displaying on one of the computers in our department. ~ NHS Physiotherapist, UK
The team at Physiopedia is doing an excellent job. Information which may not otherwise be available to myself and others is readily available as a result of Physiopedia. I feel like a better prepared physiotherapist as a result of Physiopedia. ~ Claron O’Neale, Physiotherapist, Grenada.
You guys have totally changed my practice by becoming more inquisitive and having better access to the evidence. I think Physiopedia helps us to push our boundaries and question why we are doing certain practices. ~ Michael Cline, Physical Therapist, USA
This course and the whole of Physioplus changed my view on learning after my degree - there are no longer exams, no longer anybody behind my back to push me harder. Physioplus gave me opportunity to really learn something, pushed me to really dig into the topic, and at the end rated me - so I know if I'm going right way. I really recommend it to anybody wanting to be a better clinician.
Physiopedia courses are wonderful and they have helped me positively in my practice.
You cannot sleep through one of these courses as in a lecture and collect your certificate on the way out! It needs attention and concentration!
Great course! I learnt valuable information that will change my clinical practice.
I will definitely revisit the video and get other physios at my practice to do this course!
Thank you Physiopedia for this wonderful, informative, and organised course. It made me appreciate listening to my patient's history more and reinforces the fact that listening is a sought after clinical expertise as well as clinical knowledge.
This course has been very phenomenal for me. I feel like an ACL expert at the end of the day!!
This course has a lot of information that can be used in your department to not only help your wheelchair bound patients but can empower yourself and others! Please consider this course when you work in a rural area and do not have professionals available to do maintenance and you yourself need to teach skills to users.
I enjoyed going through this course. I thought it would be difficult since I knew little on [the topic], but it wasn't. The forum was very helpful. Reading through other people's experiences was very educational.
Particularly in low resource settings
We offer free access to the online education at Physioplus to individuals in low income countries and discounted access to those in middle income countries.I have a greater understanding of wheelchair design and biomechanics which will be beneficial in my physiotherapy practice in low resource settings (Kurdistan and Cambodia) where resources and choices are fewer and the mobility environment is less ideal.
Thank you Physiopedia and ICRC for giving this wonderful course. A systematic manual like these gives a lot of opportunities for the NGO's, dealing with Clubfoot, and a lot of motivation for therapists like myself! Thank you very much!
With the knowledge I have gained from this course I am interested to gain more practical experience in this field. This course has made me more curious about learning how to become a clinician in this field and make a difference in my country!
And across all health care sectors
We welcome health professionals from other disciplines to get involved to promote interdisciplinary learning and collaboration.I am really glad to have participated in this course. I have a better knowledge in Clubfoot Management thanks to the evidence-based and precise practical demonstration, interventions, write ups, discussion forums, quizzes and additional resources. Physioplus has created the platform not only meant for Physiotherapists, but other members of the health team as well. This truly reflects the multidisciplinary approach in healthcare. It only gets better.
Physiopedia is the largest physiotherapy resource in the world and shares the amazing benefits of this profession with anyone that visits the website.We are contacted by members of the health seeking public every day, we are pleased to be able to direct them to content on Physiopedia to educate them about physiotherapy can help them. ~ Rachael Lowe, Physiopedia President.
