Physiotherapy is a health-care profession dedicated to enhancing and restoring your mobility. A Physiotherapist works with you to evaluate and restore your strength, endurance, movement and physical abilities affected by injury, disease or disability.

Physiotherapists are university graduates of recognized university-based physiotherapy programs and are licensed by the Ontario College of Physiotherapists to practice physiotherapy in Ontario.

Physiotherapists are qualified to provide assessment, therapeutic, and preventative services aimed at restoring function and preventing disability arising from trauma, disease or injury.

At The Ottawa Hospital, physiotherapy may be provided during your hospital stay as well as on an outpatient basis.
