What is physiotherapy?

The terms "physiotherapy" and "physical therapy" mean the same thing and are used interchangeably, as are the terms “physiotherapist” and “physical therapist”. The focus is on drug-free pain relief and maximum function. Physiotherapy prevents or lessens some of the physical problems that are associated with injury, disease, disability, birth defects or long periods of inactivity.

Physiotherapists are skilled in the management of back injuries. A physiotherapist will provide a comprehensive assessment of your back to determine the source of the problem, and to develop an individualized program to treat your symptoms. Depending upon the nature and severity of the back problem, the program may include:

  • A variety of manual therapy techniques such as mobilization or manipulation;
  • Exercises to mobilize or strengthen appropriate muscles;
  • Postural retraining and general conditioning;
  • Education in proper body mechanics and techniques to prevent recurrence of the back injury; and
  • Modalities such as TENS, ultrasound, heat or ice to reduce pain.

The human body is a complex system made up of hundreds of bones and joints as well as miles of muscle and ligament all working in balance. When accident or illness affects your body, your Physical Therapy One physiotherapist can restore mobility.

Physiotherapists treat the whole body. For low back pain, neck, knee and shoulder injuries, tendonitis or any other joint or muscle problems, a physiotherapist can help restore strength, comfort and activity.

Manual Therapy: Manual Therapy techniques are specialized hands-on skills consisting of joint mobilizations and manipulations as well as soft-tissue techniques designed to decrease pain, restore movement and improve function.

Mechanical and Electrical Modalities: Physiotherapists may use different modalities for pain relief, muscle spasm, inflammation and swelling, wound healing, increasing movement and strength. Examples of modalities include Hot and Cold Interventions, Mechanical Cervical and Lumbar Traction, Ultrasound, Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation (TNS), Interferential Current (IFC), Muscle Stimulation (EMS), Acupuncture, Laser, Biofeedback, Iontophoresis and Paraffin Wax.

How are physiotherapists trained?

Physiotherapists are university-educated experts who can help you achieve your highest level of physical functioning (at any stage of life) by providing you with a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

A physiotherapist is a graduate of a recognized university-based school of physiotherapy who is qualified to provide preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic services aimed at restoring function and preventing disability arising from disease, trauma or injury. Physiotherapists have a detailed understanding of how the body works, knowledge of disease, injury and the healing process and ability to distinguish what is normal from abnormal in posture, balance and movement and function.

In Canada today, a physiotherapist is a university graduate with a minimum of four years academic training plus clinical internships completed in recognized health care facilities across the world.

All practicing physiotherapists in Ontario are licensed to practice through provincial legislation. After graduation from a recognized school of physiotherapy or rehabilitation, the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, the regulatory body of physiotherapists, requires that candidates pass the Physiotherapy National Examination.
