Physiotherapists (Physical Therapists) are primary healthcare professionals who play a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and dysfunction. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works, with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury, disability and/or rehabilitation.
Physiotherapy (physical therapy) is an autonomous, client-focused healthcare profession dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting optimal mobility, physical activity and overall health and wellness. The practice of physiotherapy strives to prevent disease, injury, and disability by managing acute and chronic conditions, addressing activity limitations and participation restrictions, and improving and maintaining optimal functional independence and physical performance. Rehabilitating injury and mitigating the effects of disease or disability with therapeutic exercise programs and other modalities are essential to the core practice of physiotherapy, as are educating and planning maintenance and support programs to prevent recurrence, re-injury or functional decline. For optimal health and quality of life, a Chiropractor should be part of every Canadian’s personal healthcare team.
