A Physiotherapist is a university educated health professional and a recognized member of your health care team. Physiotherapy is a primary care, autonomous, client-focused health profession dedicated to improving quality of life by rehabilitating injury and the effects of disease or disability with therapeutic exercise programs and other interventions and also educating and planning maintenance and support programs to prevent re-occurrence, re-injury or functional decline.
When you see a Physiotherapist, they will complete an extensive assessment that may include your health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, reflexes, and sensation. Based on this assessment the Physiotherapist establishes a diagnosis and works in partnership with you to develop individualized goals and treatment programs.
Physiotherapy treatment can include therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, acupuncture, electrical modalities such as TENS, and ultrasound. A Physiotherapist promotes independence.
Emphasis is placed on what you can do for yourself and on education to prevent future injuries or disability.
