What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a regulated health profession that fills a unique and vital role in our health care system. Physiotherapists work with individuals of all ages to break down barriers to physical function. As experts in physical rehabilitation, physiotherapists focus on eliminating pain and physical limitations from a variety of common injuries and conditions. Physiotherapy focuses on evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function. Physiotherapy treatments do not involve drugs or surgery.
What do Physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists apply knowledge, skill and judgment to promote health and to assess and break down the barriers that restrict physical function. Physiotherapists are physical rehabilitation experts who assess and improve movement and function and relieve pain.
