Our Toronto physiotherapists are trained and experienced in different areas of physiotherapy. However, all of our physiotherapists provide Orthopaedic physiotherapy. General Orthopaedic physiotherapy fits the public perception of physiotherapy but it is only one of the many areas of physiotherapy. Typically, this area of physiotherapy deals with restoring and rehabilitating muscular and skeletal injuries such as sprains, strains, ruptures and overuse syndrome as well as conditions and injuries involving joints and bones.
Conditions treated by orthopaedic physiotherapy

Commonly occurring conditions that orthopaedic physiotherapists treat are muscular and skeletal conditions ranging from acute conditions such as fractures, sprains and strains to more chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis and inflammatory joint pain. The role of an orthopaedic physiotherapist is to help you manage pain, educate you on how to manage your condition and improve your flexibility, gait, muscle strength and posture. The ultimate goal of an orthopaedic physiotherapist is to improve your quality of life and assist you to resume pre injury level of function and return to your work and play.
Typical skeletal issues include inflammation of joints such as ankles, knees, hips and shoulders because of arthritis Similarly inflammation of tendons such as Achilles Tendonitis, Tennis elbow and golfers elbow or the Bursae (Bursitis) can be painful and debilitating, and it is through appropriate medical interventions in combination with physiotherapy and rehabilitation to restore function.
