What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being.

Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability.

 

Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists often work in teams with other health professionals to help meet an individual's health care needs.

Physiotherapists can help you with many ailments, including but not limited to:

arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic pain syndrome, frozen shoulder, headaches, low back pain, motor vehicle accident injuries, neck pain, post-surgery rehab, rotator cuff injuries, sciatica, sports injuries, etc. 

 

Who are registered physiotherapists?

Physiotherapists in Ontario complete a Master’s degree at one of the five Ontario Universities, a Canadian university outside Ontario or if an individual is educated outside of Canada their education is reviewed by the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators to ensure that it is substantially equivalent to the content of a Canadian physiotherapy/physical therapy program. Physiotherapists work to ensure that all the muscles, tendons, bones and joints in your body are working in conjunction in an effective manner to enhance performance and reduce aches and pains. 

 

Registered physiotherapists must continue to develop their education by continuing education courses to continue their registration with the College of Physiotherapists in Ontario. This ensures the quality of their care and treatment.
