What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is an area of medicine that deals with physical ailments that affect people each day. Registered physiotherapists have a university degree in Physical Therapy and have completed national examinations. Their focus is to evaluate and restore a person’s function and body performance, regardless of activity level. This is achieved through treating the symptoms, educating the patient as well as preventing further injury by exercise.
What to Expect From Your Physiotherapy Session
Every physiotherapy treatment is based on each individual patient’s medical history, a complete injury assessment, and a prognosis for recovery. Our Toronto physiotherapists have experience treating patients with a number of different musculoskeletal conditions and is certified in Level A, McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy.
Because each injury is uniquely different, each person’s plan of management will be treated differently.

Most treatment plans will include a session with our Scarborough physiotherapist, a number of stretching and strengthening exercises as well as therapeutic modalities.
