What is Physiotherapy

The Canadian Physiotherapy Association defines Physiotherapists as primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease.They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.

All physiotherapists registered to practice in Canada are qualified to provide safe and effective physiotherapy. They have met national entry-level education and practice standards, and have successfully passed a standardized physiotherapy competence examination prior to being registered with the college of physiotherapists in their province/territory.

Physiotherapy involves assisting people in improving function after an injury or illness.  All services are provided on a one-to-one basis. Following a thorough assessment, treatment will involve education regarding the nature of your injury, and will typically include both manual (hands-on) treatment and/or an active exercise regime.
