Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Man doing physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy can help you regain movement and balance following hip or knee surgery, an upper extremity fracture, a soft tissue injury or another musculoskeletal condition.

We offer individual treatment programs and group-based rehabilitation. Your program will be tailored to meet your needs and may include an exercise program, manual therapy, mobility training, and education. Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is offered through our Ambulatory Rehabilitation Centres.

We take on new clients following a new injury or hospitalization and with a referral from a doctor. If you think you would benefit from our services, please ask your doctor if a referral would be right for you.

Our clinics offer in-person, virtual and telephone appointments.
