Physiotherapy is a field that has benefitted significantly from advances in learning theory. Due to the prevailing physical component of rehabilitation and intervention, researchers and educational theorists have faced unique challenges when developing educational models in the physiotherapy field. The purpose of this review is to present and analyse relevant literature related to learning theory in physiotherapy regarding Constructivist Learning Theory and its importance to the physiotherapy practice. It presents numerous applications for physiotherapy practice. Principles of constructivism suggest that teachers encourage learners to arrive at resolutions in unique and varying ways. A constructivist approach to physiotherapy can also be applied by presenting a more problem-based training program.
