What is Physiotherapy?

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease.

They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.

All physiotherapists registered to practice in Ontario are qualified to provide safe and effective physiotherapy. They have met national entry-level education and practice standards, and have successfully passed a standardized physiotherapy competence examination prior to being registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.

More than 20,000 registered physiotherapists work in Canada, in private clinics, general and rehabilitation hospitals, community health centres, residential care, and assisted-living facilities, home visit agencies, workplaces, and schools.

One of the biggest reasons people go to a physiotherapist is because they’re in pain, but the cause of that pain can vary. Some people hurt their ankle, some have fallen on ice, some people come in because they’ve had a sore neck, back or shoulder for a while and they don’t know why. Some have an ongoing condition that they want to better manage.

If you need to move better, recover, or there’s something you want to do but can’t do because you have a physical restriction, physiotherapy can help.

Who Should See a Physiotherapist?

Anyone from any age, from babies to athletes to seniors. If you have experienced anything from strains to surgery to a motor vehicle accident, or if you just want to incorporate more physical activity into your life, physiotherapy can help.

What is Physiotherapy All About?

A physiotherapist can help you build a plan with proper exercises so that you can get moving and embrace whatever activity you’re interested in. Whether it's managing an existing condition, recovering from an injury, or helping you prevent them in the first place, physic can help.
