Physiotherapy, Osteopathy and Other Cool Alternatives to Medicine in Australia

Australia is one of the most popular destinations to study abroad - in fact, in 2018 alone, the country had more than 900,000 international students studying there!

Boasting an inclusive, multicultural community, a bustling metropolis that is modern and business-oriented, many students head ‘Down Under’ to pursue courses such as business, finance and engineering.

But Australia is so much more than that. Course-wise, there’s a huge range to choose from and there are some which you might not have heard of.

Begin Your Career In Rehabilitation Medicine In Australia

We have all heard of doctors and dentists, but did you know there is another similar field that centres on helping and enhancing the quality of life, of people with physical impairments or disabilities.

Forming an important bedrock of medicine and physical therapy, here are three cool rehabilitation courses to consider.

Chiropractic Medicine: Alternative medicine revolving around the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of our musculoskeletal system such as our spine.

Physiotherapy: Medical field that revolves around restoring and maintaining a patient’s mobility function and well-being (such as treating sports injuries).

Osteopathy: Alternative medicine that revolves around the physical manipulation of muscle tissues, joints, bones and spine.

From a growing demand globally, graduates of these three courses will enjoy an exciting and fulfilling career not only helping patients live their best but also treat sporting injuries from world-class athletes too!
