What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement and overall well-being.
Physiotherapists have specialized knowledge of how the body works and experienced hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability. Physiotherapy includes rehab as well as the prevention of injury and the promotion of health and fitness.
In British Columbia, you can see a physiotherapist without a doctor’s referral.
Physiotherapy can help you resume the activities that are important to you. This includes:
- Becoming stronger and more flexible;
- Increasing freedom of movement and mobility;
- Breathing more easily;
- Reducing pain;
- Staying active;
- Preventing injury.
