Physiotherapy Benefits

Physiotherapists are movement experts who optimize quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education.

After making a diagnosis, our senior physiotherapists create personalized treatment plans that help their patients

  • improve mobility
  • manage pain and other chronic conditions
  • recover from injury and
  • prevent future injury and chronic disease

Our senior physiotherapists empower people to be active participants in their own treatment, and they work collaboratively with other health professionals to ensure patients receive comprehensive holistic and complete care.

Maximize Your Movement

Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and your independence. Our senior physiotherapists are movement experts who can identify, diagnose, and treat movement problems.

Participate In Your Recovery

Physical therapists work collaboratively with their patients and clients. Treatment plans are designed for each person’s individual goals, challenges, and needs.

Avoid Opioids

Opioid risks include depression, overdose, and addiction, plus withdrawal symptoms when stopping use. In some situations, dosed appropriately, prescription opioids are an appropriate part of medical treatment.

However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging health care providers to reduce the use of opioids in favor of safe alternatives like physiotherapy for most long-term pain.

Avoid Surgery

Before you undergo expensive or invasive surgery, try seeing our senior physiotherapists.

For some conditions, including meniscal tears and knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries and tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disk disease (see all the conditions we treat in our physio clinic here), treatment by a physiotherapist (ideally an experienced senior physiotherapist) has been found to be as effective as surgery.
