What can physiotherapy do for me?
Physiotherapy concentrates on the rehabilitation of impairments and disabilities which are often congenital, habitual or injury related. Most people experience some form of bodily pain in their lifetimes, whether from accidents, athletic activities, pregnancy, surgeries or simply the onset of old age. Physiotherapy promotes a return to your previous levels of physical activity and overall health through a regimen of examination, diagnosis, exercises, therapies and treatments designed to improve and maintain your mobility, functional ability and overall quality of life. Physiotherapy also stresses preventative measures such as maintaining and developing healthy biomechanics (such as optimal methods for walking, balancing, expressing posture and ergonomics) which contribute greatly to your overall health now and in the future.
Are the physiotherapists at FIT physiotherapy professionally registered?
All of the physiotherapists at our clinic are registered with the College of Physiotherapist of Ontario. We are all publicly registered, meaning you can search for us on the college website to see if we are registered or not. Go to http://publicregister.collegept.org/PublicServices/Start.aspxand type in your Physiotherapist name.
