Physiotherapists are highly educated experts that aim to get you moving and keep you moving. They have advanced knowledge on how the human body moves and what stops it from moving. More specifically, they are trained specialists of the human musculoskeletal system (muscle, bone, joint and soft tissue), biomechanics, physical rehabilitation, therapeutic exercise, and the physical/physiological impacts of health and disease. Physiotherapists will recognize the signs of a serious health condition and will recommend a doctor’s visit if necessary.
Within a session, they will use specialized, hands-on treatment techniques to help restore, maintain, and maximize optimal function and quality of life.
Physiotherapists are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat physical symptoms and limited movement caused by injury, aging, disability, or health conditions. They aim to help patients understand the underlying causes of the pain or condition.
