Let’s Brainstorm what Physiotherapy is and does?

If you have an injury or illness affecting your ability to carry out your daily task, your doctor might suggest physiotherapy. They are licensed professionals called Physiotherapists. They customize treatment to your specific needs teach you special exercises. Most times you can visit a physiotherapist directly and sometimes through a Doctor referral. They are rarely covered by Alberta Health Services, hence you need to check if your insurance policy for coverage and limits. This we can help you with at Calgary Family Clinic.
