What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a rehabilitative therapy that is dedicated to helping an individual maintain, recover and improve their physical abilities. Physiotherapy is most commonly used in cases involving accidents or injuries. A Physiotherapist can help you return to your regular daily life as soon as possible after an accident or injury. Through a regimented treatment and exercise plan, a physiotherapist will help you manage and prevent a variety of physical problems that can be caused by illness, disease, sport and work related injuries, aging, and inactivity.

Who could benefit from Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy can help anyone who is or has been injured to prevent further injury. The physiotherapist will offer treatment, such as manual therapy, stretching, and modalities (TENs, acupuncture, therapeutic laser, Kinesio/athletic taping), as well as education and guidance to slowly and safely increase physical activity over time in order to return to you regular home, work, and exercise routine.
