Your patient made no progress over the months and barely listens to your advice. No, you cannot blow a fuse and snap on him. As frustrating as it can get, you should always keep calm and explain to your patients on their condition and what they should do to improve their situation. Even if their progress is small in a rather lengthy duration, you should understand that not everyone improves at the same pace.
Good communication skills
From children to seniors, the age range of your patients will be broad. It is crucial that you are able to get your message across regardless of their age.

Once you start, there are no specific positions. The only position is fame and it’s best to get your clients invested in you.
The working hours of a Physiotherapist are irregular, at times needing to work late to evening and weekends.
