WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is treatment provided by physical therapists that address acute and chronic physical conditions, which result in pain, loss of flexibility, and loss of function. It includes a process of assessing to determine a diagnosis and providing treatment for the purpose of rehabilitation, injury prevention, and improving physical health. Physiotherapy can help people who have injuries from traumas such as a car accident or sports injury. By receiving it you will experience a reduction in pain, increase in flexibility, and increase in function.
In addition to in-person sessions, we offer online physio sessions! Our telehealth (virtual) service is available to anyone who is unable to travel to physio appointments. Our licenced physiotherapist will provide you with the treatment and advice needed to help get you back to living a pain-free lifestyle.
YOU CAN TRUST OUR EXPERT PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Our physiotherapist will work with you one-on-one for 30 minutes so your needs can be thoroughly addressed. Our physiotherapist is registered with the College of Physical Therapists of BC.
No referrals are required to see our physiotherapist. If you have been injured in a car accident, our physiotherapy services are 100% funded by ICBC.
