Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a Masters degree who apply their knowledge of how the human body works to provide hands on clinical skills to assess, interpret findings, diagnose and treat the symptoms of various injuries or illnesses. Physiotherapists work towards regaining your independence and quality of life by restoring, maintaining and maximizing your mobility, strength, movement and overall well being.
Patients can expect a detailed Musculoskeletal Examination/Assessment on their first visit.

Follow up treatment sessions may consist of:
- manual therapy;
- dry needling;
