What is Physical Therapy?  

Physical Therapy, known also as Physiotherapy, is a rehabilitative profession that promotes maximal mobility and function. It is a health profession specializing in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and disability affecting movement of the body. Physiotherapy involves hands-on treatment that helps you maximize normal movement.  


What do Physiotherapists do?  

Physiotherapists provide assessment, treatment and education for a wide range of health problems and can recommend the best way to treat problems with muscles, bones and joints, or with the circulatory, respiratory or nervous system. Through use of specifically designed exercises, equipment, muscle re-education and hands-on management, physiotherapists help patients regain or improve their physical abilities. 


Who can access Physiotherapy services?  

Anyone who feels they may benefit from physiotherapy services is able to refer his or herself and an appointment will be arranged as appropriate. Your physician may also recommend you to see a physiotherapist.  


Physiotherapy services are available to patients who are in the hospital. They will be referred by their doctor and will be seen for an assessment by a physiotherapist. Treatment will then continue as needed throughout their time in hospital and afterwards if necessary.
