The EN-FR dictionary currently says this about kiné :

kiné nmf
familier (kinésithérapeute) (informal, abbreviation)physio n
physiotherapist n
physical therapist n
Je me suis encore coincé le dos, il faut que j'aille voir le kiné.

"physio" is a British term; not used or even understood in AE--this should be specified.

We don't really have a shortened name for physical therapist in AE; physical therapy is widely known however as P.T., and sometimes people will refer to the therapist with this term as well.

    Hi wildan1,

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I didn't know you guys didn't use 'physio'. I've made the appropriate changes, which you will be able to see next time the dictionary is updated.
