Ottawa Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists take a holistic approach to recovery and will use their knowledge of the human body to look at total body mechanics; joint movement, strength, flexibility, and overall well-being. 

After a physical assessment, your practitioner will develop a customized treatment plan based on your medical history, type of injury, lifestyle, and other important aspects of your life. A home exercise program is often included to provide functional exercises that is tailored to you and your needs. 

The desire to return to activities of daily living pain free is what the majority of our patients desire. Physiotherapists can help achieve this and encourage patients to take an active role in their recovery. Sessions can include rehabilitation, injury prevention, chronic disease or disability management, health and fitness promotion, and return to work strategies.
