Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that promotes, maintains, and restores mobility, function and well-being. Physiotherapy treatments focus on both prevention and rehabilitation from injury, disease and disability. Whether you want to recover from an injury, reduce symptoms, improve a chronic problem, speed up your return to sport, increase your athletic performance, or simply reduce health risks, the physiotherapists at Greater Toronto Rehabilitation Clinics will be there to treat, motivate, and guide you toward your goals.

The physiotherapists at Greater Toronto Rehabilitation Clinics are registered with and regulated by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. At a minimum, our physiotherapists have completed a post-graduate physiotherapy program at an accredited university. Our physiotherapists continually upgrade their skills and strive to stay current with advances in medical research because our goal is to provide you with the best patient-centered, evidence-based care.

At your first visit, our physiotherapists will ask you detailed questions regarding your problem, condition or injury, and perform an assessment to determine the contributing factors in order to design a personalized treatment plan to reduce pain and restore mobility and function.
