When you think physio, you are probably thinking of orthopedic injuries: muscles, joints, nerves, bones and connective tissues. This group consists of all your sprains and strains, spinal pain, arthritis, post surgical etc.

Physiotherapy services of an orthopedic nature are offered at Pursuit Physiotherapy. Orthopedic means pertaining to the skeletal system which involves the muscles, joints, nerves, bones and connective tissues. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and strive for the optimal balance in these systems. Your problem may be causing you pain, preventing you from doing things you need to do, or you may just be aware that your body is not working at its best.

We deal with injuries in the acute (fresh new injuries occurring in the past few days), subacute (first few weeks healing), and chronic (more than a few weeks) stages. Physio can be helpful at any stage of your injury recovery. We will teach you how to manage your injury and pain, use machines to help the healing if appropriate, and show you how to regain your movement or strength as needed.
