Physiotherapy Services

Physiotherapy is a primary health care profession that promotes wellness, mobility and independent function by providing quality patient-centred treatment.

Physiotherapy supports individual wellness by:

  • Promoting physical activity and overall health;
  • Preventing disease, injury, and disability;
  • Managing acute and chronic conditions, activity limitations, and participation restrictions;
  • Improving and maintaining optimal functional independence and physical performance;
  • Rehabilitating injury and the effects of disease or disability with therapeutic exercise programs and other interventions; and
  • Educating and planning maintenance and support to prevent re-occurrence, re-injury or functional decline.

The Physiotherapy Department at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences provides services to inpatients and outpatients on referral from a physician or nurse practitioner.  Our team consists of one part-time Physiotherapist and two part-time Rehabilitation Facilitators.  Our individualized treatment programs are based on the patient’s diagnosis and encourage patient involvement in planning and goal-setting.  Treatments may include a supervised exercise program, education and promotion of healthy living and physical well-being.
