What is Physiotherapy?
Physical Therapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.
All physical therapists registered to practice in Canada are qualified to provide safe and effective physical therapy. They have met national entry-level education and practice standards and have successfully passed a standardized physiotherapy competence examination prior to being registered with the college of physiotherapists in their province/territory.
