Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Orthopedic physiotherapy in Barrie is a specialized area of physiotherapy that focuses on treating musculoskeletal injuries and conditions affecting the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments. 

Orthopedic physiotherapists use a variety of techniques, including manual therapy, exercise prescription, and modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation, to help reduce pain, increase mobility and strength, and promote healing. 

They work closely with patients to develop individualized treatment plans that address their specific needs and goals. Common conditions treated by orthopedic physiotherapists include back pain, arthritis, sports injuries, and post-surgical rehabilitation.
