As far as I am concered when a patients tells me (...) with the patients with physical disability and pain limiting their activities. So is it fair to ask physios to help those WITHOUT movement or physical issues as well?

When does a physio stop being a physio and start becoming a psychologist? Now of course many physiotherapists, including myself, are trained in some psychological and other non physical interventions
