Leave discomfort behind through safe and effective physiotherapy treatment.
Physiotherapy is a health care discipline which specializes in the assessment, treatment, and maintenance of movement and function. Physiotherapy utilizes physical means and agents to assist in restoration of an individual’s health and functional movement. Physiotherapists also have a strong expertise in exercise rehabilitation which can assist people in returning to an active and fulfilling lifestyle.
Physiotherapy services include (but are not limited to):
- biomechanical running assessments
- injury prevention and rehabilitation
- dry needling
At Heritage Fitness, you will never see a physiotherapist’s assistant for your treatments. Each and every treatment is given by a qualified physiotherapist. Physiotherapy utilizes physical means to assist in the restoration of proper function and mobility.
