Physio Helps Lives!

May 15, 2017

May is National Physiotherapy Month!

Whether it's pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle, or management of chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, physiotherapy can help!

Physiotherapy is a health care profession directed at evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function. Physiotherapists, also known as physical therapists, have a detailed understanding of how the body works and are university educated and trained to assess and improve movement and function and relieve pain. Physiotherapists promote good health by encouraging their patients to improve and increase their independence.

Working alongside Physiotherapists at HPHA are Rehabilitation Therapy Assistants (RA). An RA is a health care worker who helps to teach clients to effectively cope with their limitations in movement, daily functioning and activity.
