Physiotherapy is concerned with the physical, psychological, emotional and social well being of the individual. As such the benefits of physiotherapy are many and varied. For the individual suffering from cardiopulmonary disorders (COPD) physiotherapy can help the person regain condition through supervised ambulation and manual therapy to assist in clearing lung secretions. In orthopedic cases, like hip or knee surgery, physiotherapy can train a person how to use an assistive device to ambulate safely until he/she can walk independently without a device. Strengthening exercises also form part of the treatment to help regain lost strength. Neurological disorders like stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and others also respond well to physiotherapy
