Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists are registered with the College of Physiotherapy and provide active, individualised, evidence-based treatment for orthopaedic and neurological conditions. A variety of treatment techniques such as manual therapy, functional exercises or modalities may be used with the goal of optimizing a patients overall function, maintaining independence and preventing injuries. The physiotherapy treatment approach is client-centered. Each visit is one on one (30-60 minutes) and each treatment plan will be individualised and focused on each patientโ€™s specific life demands and goals. Physiotherapists have extensive training in orthopaedic injuries, sport specific rehabilitation and neurological conditions. Due to extensive Manual therapy courses some physiotherapists can also provide ART โ€“ active release techniques, acupuncture, peripheral and spinal mobilizations and manipulations. Due to the individualised, client centered approach, as well as the evidence-based treatment and increased one on one time, patients typically require fewer treatment sessions.
