Physiotherapy is a primary care, autonomous, client-focused health profession dedicated to improving quality of life by:

  • Promoting optimal mobility/strength, physical activity and overall health and wellness
  • Preventing disease, injury, and disability
  • Managing acute and chronic conditions, activity limitations, and
    participation restrictions
  • Improving and maintaining optimal functional independence and
    physical performance
  • Rehabilitating injury and the effects of disease or disability with
    therapeutic exercise programs and other interventions, and
  • Educating and planning maintenance and support programs to
    prevent re-occurrence, re-injury or functional decline

Physiotherapy is anchored in movement sciences and aims to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems. This holistic approach incorporates a broad range of physical and physiological therapeutic interventions.
