Physiotherapy is a health care practice that revolves around client-centered care. Physiotherapists work in partnerships with individuals of all ages to overcome barriers with physical function. 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. Physiotherapists work with wide ranges of populations that can include; pre and post surgery, acute and/or chronic injuries of muscles and joints, sports injuries and age related conditions. The goal of physiotherapy is to enable individuals to become active in their rehabilitation process by educating individuals how to best take care of themselves during and after an injury. This allows individuals to take an active part in their recovery in order to prevent recurrences and return to activities they enjoy.
