Physiotherapy is dedicated to improving overall health and wellness by promoting optimal mobility and preventing injury and disability. Physiotherapy addresses activity limitations and participation restrictions caused by pain, weakness, instability, trauma, muscle or joint stiffness, poor posture or body mechanics, disuse, or disease. Whether you are suffering from a chronic condition or recovering from an acute injury, sports injury, concussion, or surgery, physiotherapy is beneficial in decreasing pain, improving range of motion, increasing strength, and maintaining overall quality of life.
Our Aurora physiotherapists are regulated healthcare professionals that specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating a variety of injuries.
