Physical therapy is a term that refers to a variety of procedures used to relieve pain and restore mobility to injured human body parts like limbs and joints. It gives those with serious musculoskeletal and neuromuscular issues, whether acquired or inherited, a new lease on life. It’s also administered to patients after procedures like joint replacement and muscle restoration, in which a bodily portion is immobilised for an extended length of time. Since medical improvements have boosted the survival rate of premature infants and trauma and stroke victims, the demand for evaluation and treatment of their biophysical disorders has grown. This is propelling the global physical therapy services market to new heights.

Physical therapy is a type of treatment that employs practises such as exercise, massage, and others to alleviate any sickness or wound. Geriatric physical treatments, cardiac and pulmonary physiotherapy, neurological physiotherapy, and other sorts of fleshly therapies are some of the most common.

Physical Therapy Market Dynamics


Advancements in healthcare sector

The market is predicted to rise due to an increase in the number of incidents occurring around the world. Other factors such as advancements in healthcare facilities, availability of physical therapy at healthcare facilities such as hospitals, private practises, and others, rising population ageing, and increasing number of people suffering from neurological disease are expected to boost the physical therapy market from 2022 to 2029.

Technological advancements

Low treatment costs for physical therapy rehabilitation solutions, increasing launches and approvals of novel virtual physical therapy solutions, and growing collaborations and partnerships among market participants are all factors driving market expansion. Physiotherapy equipment demand is predicted to rise as a result of technological advancements and novelties by leading businesses, boosting market growth.

Rise in demand of physical therapy services

The overall growth of global physical therapy rehabilitation solutions is likely to be driven by rising awareness of the value of physical treatment that produces benefits without side effects. People receive physical therapy in a variety of venues, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, private offices, sports and fitness activities, and others. Physical therapy services are in higher demand in elementary and secondary schools and sports and fitness centres for special education kids.


More individuals are engaged in sports and severe physical activity around the world, which is contributing to an increase in the number of injuries associated with these activities. It is a significant market growth component. With an increasing older population, falls are becoming more common in both indoor and outdoor settings. This is a natural result of joints failing as they age, resulting in an increase in the demand for physical therapy services.


High expenses associated with research and development skills, limited infrastructure services, high prices associated with sports medicine, and a lack of knowledge in retreating nations are projected to stymie industry expansion. Furthermore, during the forecast period of 2022–2029, the market is expected to be hampered by a lack of favourable remuneration states and technology transmission in developing countries, as well as a high practise duty imposed on medical devices and a lack of suitable advice in low- and middle-income countries.
