St. Albert Physiotherapy Treatment

Physiotherapists are healthcare practitioners who are highly-educated in physical function, movement, and mobility.

They assess, diagnose, and provide treatment that helps to restore, maintain, and maximize optimal function and overall quality of life. Whether due to injury, aging, disability, or health condition, physiotherapists can help patients understand the cause of their symptoms, how to self-manage their symptoms, and how to prevent recurrences/re-injury.
