“Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession dedicated to working with people to identify and maximize their ability to move and function throughout their lifespan”
What is Physiotherapy?
The profession of Physiotherapy, also known as Physical Therapy, has evolved to become a primary health care modality in Canada. The Physiotherapy profession in BC is regulated by the College of Physical Therapists of BC (CPTBC).
The Physiotherapy profession involves multiple interventions for the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction. This includes manual therapy techniques, electrotherapeutic and mechanical agents, and active rehabilitation.
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.
