(from the Canadian Physiotherapy Association) Physiotherapists assess a patient’s level of mobility, strength, endurance and other physical abilities to determine the impact of their illness or injury on their physical function, whether at work, rest or play. Physiotherapists diagnose the condition and develop a treatment plan to restore movement and reduce pain or limitations to mobility. Physiotherapists treat the condition and help the patient understand its effect on their function. Physiotherapists measure the patient’s progress regularly and adjust the treatment accordingly. They also advise the patient on how to manage their condition independently and help the patient prevent avoidable recurrences or complications. Physiotherapists can also advise you on ways to prevent potential health problems from occurring before they arise. AMS physiotherapists primarily work in 2 practice areas: orthopedics and neurology.

Massage therapy is a valuable contributor to injury rehabilitation. Massage therapy is so important to recovery that some injuries are unlikely to fully heal without it. While massage therapy can be performed through one of many different methods, the core purpose is typically the same. The goal of massage is to help muscles to fully relax so they can release tension and toxins while increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the area, helping the body to rebuild and to heal.
