​​If you are having difficulty moving, our physiotherapists can help. Physiotherapists can help you improve your physical performance; prevent and manage pain; and increase your fitness, health and wellness.

  • Assess your ability to move
  • Give you information about your condition
  • Show you how to exercise and improve your breathing, strength, movement and activity level
  • Connect you with community resources or rehabilitation institutions
