Orthopaedic Physiotherapists are primary healthcare professionals who are experts in human anatomy and who play a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease.
Using skilled hands-on and exercise-based techniques, as well as injury-specific education, a physiotherapist is able to assess, diagnose, and treat musculoskeletal injuries, illnesses, and diseases.
The main objective of a physiotherapist is to help restore function and movement and/or help prevent future injuries to maximize their patient’s quality of life.

What is the difference between Acupuncture & Dry Needling?
In acupuncture, a needle is inserted into a specific location called acupuncture points which are found in energy channels that run throughout the body. This stimulates endorphins to help relieve pain, promote healing, and restore balance to body function.
Dry needling also requires the use of acupuncture needles. A needle is inserted into trigger points of a muscle to stimulate a release of tight bands to restore normal function and blood flow.
What education level do you need to be a physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists must complete an undergraduate degree, followed by a 2-year Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy from an accredited institution within Canada. Physiotherapists are expected to continue their education after graduating in order to stay current on the latest research.
