Physiotherapists must work within the context of the law and this requires a sound understanding of the law relating to their practice. This practical text is written for those who have no legal knowledge and clearly sets out the principles of law that apply to the practical situation which they encounter on a daily basis.

The issue of accountability is a hugely contentious one, as is the moving and handling of patients and the question of the limit of professional practice versus complementary medicine.
