Physiotherapy is a form of rehabilitation based on an understanding of how and why movements occur. Physiotherapists shape their techniques through scientific evidence and education, meaning their skills are constantly evolving to deliver the most effective method of treatment. They have the ability to adapt their skills as required for all populations ranging from active youths to the elderly population. A Physiotherapist helps to prevent, identify, assess, correct or alleviate acute or chronic movement dysfunction, physical disability or pain.
Physiotherapy will help you return to your daily activities after sustaining a variety of injuries including repetitive strain injuries, back and neck pain, sports injuries, muscle strains and joint sprains. Physiotherapy is also covered by most extended health plans in Ontario.
