Physiotherapy is a health care profession dedicated to helping individuals maximize their strength, function, and mobility throughout the lifespan. Physiotherapists perform assessments by taking a detailed history and physical measures including strength and range of motion. The therapist then evaluates the findings to determine a diagnosis, and the most appropriate course of treatment. Depending on the condition and the goals of the client, the therapist may choose to incorporate a wide range of treatment techniques including:

  • Massage
  • Manual therapy
  • Joint mobilizations
  • Exercise prescription
  • Acupuncture
  • Taping and more
