Physical Therapist Winnipeg

Those Physical Therapist in Winnipeg who practice this form of medical treatment are called physiotherapists or physical therapists (PTs).

The role of a physical therapist

A physical therapist handles the restoration, maintenance, and promotion of optimal physical function. Those who find themselves struggling to perform everyday tasks that require physical movement may seek the help of a physical therapist.


In our Winnipeg clinic, the main goal is to get you back to the activities that you care about!

Benefits

Physical therapists are evidence-based healthcare professionals that identify and deal with people of every age that have medical issues or various other health-related conditions that limit their capacities to relocate and perform functional activities in their lives.

 

They use affordable therapy that boosts physical stregnth and relieves pain while minimizing the requirement for surgery and prescription drugs. This enables individuals to join a recovery strategy created for their particular demands.

Our team of experts in Winnipeg will first assess your impairment in order to come up with an individualised treatment plan. Everyone is different and that fact alone will require varied approaches to reach a solution, but there are some basic principles we abide by.
