What is physiotherapy?
Dedicated to rehabilitation, physiotherapy helps people identify and maximize their ability to move and function through the use of manual therapy. Manual therapy includes a range of practical methods and hands-on techniques geared towards decreasing pain and improving joint and soft tissue mobility.

What do physiotherapists do?
Our Registered Physiotherapists are university-educated health professionals who specialize in many areas such as sports, women’s and senior’s health, orthopedic, and neurology. Using judgement and techniques based on science and research, they help patients walk and move freely after injury, recover mobility after an illness or surgery, manage chronic diseases, and more.
At Royal Treatment Therapeutics, we are proud to offer a one-on-one treatment approach. During your uninterrupted 30 or 60-minute session, you will receive the full and undivided attention of your physiotherapist. This type of personalized treatment allows your physiotherapist to create a tailored and all-inclusive treatment plan based on your specific goals. It also results in more productive treatment sessions with plenty of time for supervised exercise and manual techniques. Patient education is another important aspect as our physiotherapists believe knowledge is empowering. After leaving our clinic, you will have a better understanding of how your body works, know how to reduce your risk of injury, and feel confident in self-managing your symptoms.
When you come in for a free, no-obligation discovery visit, your physiotherapist will assess you by asking questions about your health history and checking your range of motion. From there, they’ll work with you to put together a treatment plan for your condition or injury so you can get back to enjoying life and the activities you love.
