Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a primary health care profession that focuses on the rehabilitation, health promotion, and functional independence of its clients. Physiotherapists combine their extensive knowledge of the body and movement with specialized hands-on skills to treat a variety of musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, and neurological conditions and injuries. Following assessment and diagnosis, the physiotherapist will create a customized treatment plan designed to reach your personal goals, improve your quality of life, and guide you on your path to recovery.

     “Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. Whether it’s pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle, or management of chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, a physiotherapist can help.” (Canadian Physiotherapy Association)
