Why a Physiotherapist?

Take control of your health today

Anyone can benefit from physiotherapy, whether you are living with pain or a chronic illness, recovering from a stroke or cardiac event, dealing with workplace injury, or aching after a weekend of increased physical activity.

Your physiotherapist can provide you with the tools that will give you the freedom to function in your home or at your workplace, or while taking part in your favourite leisure activity.

Physiotherapists offer a range of services to people:

  • of all ages and all physical abilities
  • who have heart and lung disease, amputations, arthritic joints, and burns
  • who have experienced traumatic workplace, athletic injuries, or motor vehicle accident injuries
  • who have suffered stroke, brain injury, spinal cord and nerve injury, or cancer
  • who have pre and post surgical needs, pregnancy needs, or impaired urinary function
  • who experience ongoing pain
  • who want to prevent injury, disease, or illness
  • who want to function with greater ease

Physiotherapists trained in the specialty also provide services to animals.
