What is a Physiotherapist?

A Physiotherapist (PT) is a university educated, primary access health care professional with extensive knowledge of human movement and how it is affected by injury, disease or disuse. Physiotherapists have the hands-on clinical skills needed to assess and treat symptoms associated with pain and movement dysfunction. A Physiotherapist can provide personalized hands-on treatment, exercise and education designed to assist you in restoring, maintaining or maximizing your functional movement potential and overall sense of well-being. Physiotherapists in Ontario are registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO). Only those who are registered can use the professional designation PT.
