One-on-One Physiotherapy by Highly Trained Physiotherapists

What do Physiotherapists Do?

Physiotherapists are the experts in the diagnosis and management of conditions within their scope of practice. They help assess, diagnose, and treat physical symptoms caused by injuries, aging, life demands, or health conditions.  They help alleviate pain, improve function, and increase performance.  They help people understand their condition and teach them how to get well, stay well, and improve their quality of life.

Physiotherapists are an authority on the prescription of exercise and other techniques to help restore movement and optimal function.   Sessions can include hands on treatment, such as joint and muscle mobilization and manipulation, exercise, functional training, education, therapeutic taping, acupuncture, dry needling, and modality application based on each patient’s needs.

How is a Physiotherapist part of my healthcare team?

Physiotherapists are an essential part of the Canadian healthcare system for the care and management of musculoskeletal conditions.  Many surgeons require prospective patients to be screened by a physiotherapist prior to their appointment.  Physiotherapists can also refer you for imaging such as X-rays, Ultrasound, or MRI, and can arrange for specialist appointments if needed.  Let us help you take charge of your body and get you moving again!
