Physiotherapy plays a key role in the health of individuals across the care continuum. Physiotherapy is effective in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of acute and chronic conditions, the prevention of injury and disability and in promoting health and well-being.
Utilizing a variety of techniques and treatment methods, physiotherapists can help relieve pain, restore movement, improve strength and flexibility as well as enhance patients overall physical and emotional well-being. Treatments may include manual therapies, mobilizations, stretches, pain relieving modalities, balance training, active conditioning, education and home-based exercise instruction.
