You Don't Need to Have Pain to Come to Physio
Written by: Sasha Guay, Registered Physiotherapist, MSc(PT)
Preventative physiotherapy isn’t just for elite athletes.
Many people don’t realize that they can come in BEFORE they have pain. Our main goal as physiotherapists is to help people achieve the best version of themselves and maximize their wellbeing. If people came in before the pain became debilitating and negatively impacting their day to day lives, it would make our jobs a heck of a lot easier!
You DON’T need to have pain to come in. Help us evaluate your endurance, strength, range of motion, balance, motor control and more to get ahead of the pain.
