Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a rigorous drug-free health discipline that addresses patients' psychological, emotional and social well being.

Many injuries restrict one's ability to lead active lifestyles or even to perform the activities of daily living that most of us take for granted. Particularly when combined with other treatments such as Acupuncture and Massage Therapy, Physiotherapy is an effective treatment modality to assist one with his or her recovery of function after serious or minor injury. Auto or workplace accidents are common causes of injury that both require, and respond well to, physiotherapy treatments. Others include slips and falls at home or in public places.
