Registered Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists use their extensive knowledge in how the body works to treat individuals with various conditions. They use joint mobilization techniques, exercises, and physical modalities to restore joint mobility and physical function. Common modalities used include ultrasound, muscle stimulation, and electric stimulation. Physiotherapists treat conditions associated with sports injuries, neck and back pain, arthritis, sciatica, motor vehicle accidents, work injuries, tendonitis, and neurological pathologies. Research has shown physiotherapy to be effective in decreasing pain, improving mobility, and increasing strength and function. Physiotherapists must complete a university degree in physiotherapy and become registered with the Ontario College of Physiotherapists.
