MOVE. HEAL. LEARN.
“The Body will become better at whatever you do, or don’t do.
If you don’t move, your body will make you better at not moving.
If you move, your body will allow more movement.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has possibly had us more confined in our spaces, and working, playing and living in adapted positions than our bodies were formally accustomed to. For the start of 2021, re-engage your body! Take back your full mobility capability by consulting our team of rehabilitation specialist to get your body back in full gear!

How do we treat?
As health care professionals, physiotherapy technologists combine in-depth knowledge of the human body with specialized clinical rehabilitation skills to intervene in cases of illness, injury and/or loss of normal function in the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiopulmonary systems. Their goal is to obtain optimal functional performance regarding a patient’s strength, mobility and overall well-being.
Physiotherapy technologists use multiple rehabilitation modalities such as strengthening and flexibility exercises, massage techniques, electrotherapy and thermotherapy.
