What is Physiotherapy?

According to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, “physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease. They combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability”.

Our Physiotherapists are trained to treat a variety of conditions involving the cardiovascular, neurological, and neuromusculoskeletal systems.

At Wilcox Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic, our focus is on the assessment, treatment, and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. The neuromusculoskeletal system is comprised of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and associated nerves and tissues.
