Many Albertans have an illness, injury or condition which makes mobility difficult and therefore effects every aspect of our day-to-day lives, from working to participating in hobbies or exercising. Physiotherapy is performed by physiotherapists. Physiotherapists are experts on how your body moves and what stops it from moving. As movement specialists, physiotherapists will use a hands-on approach to help you restore, maximize and maintain movement for the rest of your life. In Alberta, physiotherapy is a regulated health-care profession. This means only qualified professionals can become registered physiotherapists and use the titles physiotherapist, physical therapist or PT.
