Physiotherapy in Ottawa

person lifting weightsLike chiropractic, physiotherapy is a safe, drug-free, non-invasive way of combating faulty movement and other neuromusculoskeletal limitations. Whereas chiropractic addresses the joints of the spine and extremities, physiotherapy is more concerned with the soft tissue components. It’s an excellent approach to aid in recovery from surgery or injury, improve strength and mobility and create greater stability.

Physiotherapy is an excellent complement to chiropractic care, as it helps to consolidate the changes made with chiropractic through rehabilitative exercises and stretching.

At Ottawa Health: Performance and Rehabilitation, we don’t use physiotherapy assistants—you will be working with your physiotherapist, one-on-one, for your entire visit.
