What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession directed at evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function.


What Is A Physiotherapist?
Also known as physical therapists, physiotherapists have a detailed understanding of how the body works and are specially educated and trained to assess and improve movement and function, and to relieve pain. Physiotherapists promote good health by encouraging their clients or patients to improve and increase control over their own lives. There are more than 18,600 physiotherapists licensed to practice in Canada.


What Can A Physiotherapist Do For You?

  • Assessment of movement, strength, endurance and other physical abilities.
  • Assessment of the impact of an injury or disability on physical function.
  • Assessment of physical preparation for work and sports.
  • Program planning and education to restore movement and reduce pain.
  • Individualized treatment of an injury or disability based on scientific knowledge and a thorough assessment of the condition, environmental factors and lifestyle.


A Physiotherapist’s Role In Your Health Care
Physiotherapists provide valuable health care for people throughout their life ­ from birth to old age.

For instance, physiotherapists can:

  • Prevent and treat sports injuries;
  • Restore and increase range of motion in joints;
  • Increase co-ordination;
  • Counsel and education in pre- and post-natal care;
  • Design user-friendly homes and workplaces;
  • Educate clients in the use of devices such as canes, crutches and wheelchairs;
  • Help injured individuals return to work successfully.


What makes us different than other clinics?
Often physiotherapists will often have many patients going at the same time. Although this can be effective for simple injuries, it is often not ideal to work with complex, long-standing physical conditions. This does not happen at Priority Massage and Health. We are dedicated to providing quality one-on-one physiotherapy.
