Why Use a Physiotherapist (PT)?
Health care professionals with the designation as a Registered Physiotherapist have completed a Masters Degree from an accredited Canadian University. The basis of the educational curriculum is centered on evidence informed solutions to soft tissue and joint problems. In addition to having minimum passing grades all registrants have successfully passed the rigorous National Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE).
The importance to you is the assurance that any health care professional with the PT designation has the proven ability to provide safe and effective health care for your physical health.

Although there are Registered Massage Therapy professionals who work with stress related issues this represents a small percentage of treatments.
The ultimate goal of Massage Therapy is to improve soft tissue and joint health through the manual manipulation of soft tissue, connective tissue, muscles, ligaments, and tendons coupled with therapeutic exercise. There are numerous evidence informed techniques employed with the ultimate goal of reducing pain, speeding up injury recovery, and improving movement performance.
