Physiotherapists work with patients to help them regain mobility and function. They assess joint movement, muscle strength and endurance, and evaluate performance of daily activities and sports. Treatment includes therapeutic exercise, cardiovascular endurance training, manual therapy and other supplementary modalities including robotic aided therapy.

Our aim for therapy is to help patients achieve a better quality of life through education, awareness, empowerment and their participation in treatment.
