What is a Physiotherapist?
A physiotherapist is a post-graduate professional program that takes at least 2 years on top of an undergraduate program. With a focus on movement patterns and techniques, they are well versed in identifying strengths and weakness and rebuilding those weaknesses. Northwest Rehab Group's Physiotherapists use a variety of soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, exercise rehabilitation and various other techniques to make sure you reach your goals.
Physiotherapists help with musculoskeletal injuries and preventative care by manual therapy, exercise rehabilitation and education of healthy and active lifestyles. Manual therapy can include myofascial release, soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, and modalities. It is important to get back to everyday activities and pre-accident status, as well as prevent injuries from occurring, and physiotherapy can help with that!.For inquires, please contact us for a consultation.

Common questions about physiotherapy:
Will I only be doing exercises for my treatment?
Each session is dependent on the patient's goals. Our physiotherapists focus on making sure you are comfortable while achieving your goal. Most sessions will consist of having some manual therapy time. As you progress, less manual therapy time may be required with more focus on your movement and strength.
Will I be in more pain after my treatment?
Most patients leave their session more comfortable and confident with their movement. However, as with any manual therapy and active rehab program, there can be times where you can have more pain after certain movements. Don't be discouraged though, but please tell your therapist what gave you pain so they can better accommodate to your needs.
Do I need a referral to see a physiotherapist?
No, you do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist. However, if you did see a physician before your appointment, please discuss with your physiotherapist what their findings were as this can better focus your treatment.
