What is Physiotherapy ?

Physiotherapists study the science of movement and more specifically the SOFT tissues and how they influence this movement.. They learn how to effectively diagnose a soft tissue injury and treat that injury to speed your recovery. Once you are FEELING BETTER a physiotherapist can design AND monitor your rehabilitation program to STOP THIS INJURY HAPPENING AGAIN.

There are specializations within the Physiotherapy Profession and these can also help with rehabilitation from more serious medical conditions such as recovery from a heart attack, stroke and joint replacement surgery. 

When should I see a Physiotherapist?


Think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury or pain that affects how you function and manage your daily activities?  A doctor may refer you to physiotherapy after surgery such as a hip replacement, or an event such as a heart attack or stroke.

If you are planning to use health insurance to help cover the cost of physiotherapy. We have an insurance expert who will assist you in investigating your coverage and how you can be reimbursed for these services.
