According to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, “Physiotherapy is the primary health care profession that promotes wellness, mobility, and independent function. Physiotherapists have advanced understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well, and how to restore mobility.” Physiotherapy is anchored in movement sciences and aims to enhance or restore the function of multiple body systems. A Physiotherapist is committed to health, lifestyle and improving the quality of life of their patients. This holistic approach incorporates a broad range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions and aids. Physiotherapy is a health care profession designed primarily to improve a person’s mobility. Physiotherapy (sometimes simply referred to as ‘physio’) is also highly beneficial for people who have recently suffered an injury to their joints or muscles. A physiotherapist is a university trained healthcare professional who will be able to treat a musculoskeletal and/or neuromuscular issue in the body using an integrated method of treatments which broadly include: - Soft tissue and manual therapy techniques which include massages, spinal/joint mobilization and manipulation, and acupuncture. - Work and occupational re-training and plans for work return. - Prescription, fabrication and application of assistive, supportive and protective equipment. - Environmental change to provide a focus on removing barriers in order to function.
