Physiotherapy

This recognized health-field profession focuses on the assessment, restoration and maintenance of physical functions. It aims to evaluate, treat and prevent physical and functional deficiencies/disabilities as well as to promote a healthy lifestyle at the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory levels.

All generations can benefit from it: pediatrics, adults and seniors. Physiotherapists have university medical training and are overseen by the Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec (OPPQ). They have a detailed understanding of the functioning of the body and, based on their specialties, can help you with different issues such as posture; back, neck and head aches; tendinitis, bursitis, capsulitis and calcification; rehabilitation after a surgery, a work or road accident, a sprain-strain or a fracture, an amputation, or a burn; sports injuries; arthritis issues; pre- and post-childbirth care; respiratory problems; urinary problems; constipation and genital or rectal pain; child motor development delay; neurological disorders such as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA); fibromyalgia, etc.

Contrary to the general image one might have, physiotherapy touches several aspects of the functioning of the human body with the aim of relieving its aches and improving its functioning and autonomy. To do so, physiotherapists are very hands-on and their treatment goes beyond the tools at their disposal such as ice/heat, current, ultrasound and exercises, etc. They must use their palpatory skills and manual techniques in order to help balance the structures involved and other tools to help reach, maintain or improve such balance.

We can help you regain a better quality of life. Consult our physiotherapists today; no medical referral necessary. Physiotherapy services are generally reimbursed by insurance.
