What do physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists provide assessment, treatment and education for a wide range of health problems to ensure you make the most of your lifestyle. As people live longer and busier lives than ever before, it’s not surprising that our bodies occasionally need assistance to stay in good working order. Physiotherapists can recommend the best way to treat problems with your muscles, bones and joints, circulatory, respiratory or nervous system. Physiotherapists can also advise you on ways to prevent potential health problems from occurring before they arise.
Every year physiotherapists assist thousands of Canadians of all ages, from babies to the elderly, in preventing and managing the effects of congenital diseases, illness, chronic diseases, neurological conditions, accidents and the stresses and strains of everyday life.
