WHO ARE PHYSIOTHERAPISTS?
Physiotherapists are primary healthcare professionals who are involved with the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease. We combine in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to help people lead healthier, more active lives with less pain and disability.
All of our physiotherapists are certified and in good standing with the College of Physical Therapists of BC, and have each taken extensive continued education courses in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Everyday, we help people in Penticton like you recover from injury or illness and reach their full potential.
