Physiotherapy

Leave discomfort behind through safe and effective physiotherapy treatment.

Physiotherapy is a health care discipline that specializes in the assessment, treatment, and maintenance of movement and function. Physiotherapy utilizes physical means and agents to assist in the restoration of an individual’s health and functional movement.
