Physiotherapy assists people in restoring, maintaining and maximizing their movement, function, strength and overall well-being. Using knowledge of the body’s inner workings, physiotherapists work hands-on to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms ranging from injury to the body to illness and disability.
Physiotherapy is much more than just rehabilitation. It can assist you in injury prevention, maintenance of health and promotion of movement.
The heart of the physiotherapy profession… is understanding how and why movement and function take place. Physiotherapists are highly skilled and autonomous health professionals who provide safe, quality client-centred physiotherapy through a commitment to service availability, accessibility and excellence.” – Canadian Physiotherapy Association
