At PhysioWorks, it is our commitment to be one of Vancouver’s leading providers of high quality one-on-one physiotherapy.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a primary health care service provided by university educated professionals who specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating a variety of injuries, disabilities, and movement disorders.

Our physiotherapists utilize a variety of techniques such as manual or ‘hands-on’ therapy, customized exercise prescription, and electro-therapeutic modalities. Our therapists can help you manage and decrease pain, improve mobility, and increase strength.

Ultimately, it is our physiotherapists’ goal to improve your overall well-being and get you back to enjoying your life’s hobbies or passions.

Your first appointment

At your first appointment, you will be assessed and treated by one of our physiotherapists. Your assessment begins with a conversation about your current issue, past medical history, and treatment goals. Next, your physiotherapist will typically evaluate a combination of joint motion, strength, posture, balance, gait and functional movement. After a thorough assessment, your physiotherapist will explain to you your condition and the appropriate treatment plan so that you gain an understanding of your injury. You will be given practical strategies to implement to optimize your healing.


After your assessment, your physiotherapist will move on to treatment. This can be a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription, or electrotherapy. We have an onsite gym that is fully-equipped which means that you can go through each exercise with your physiotherapist step by step. You will also receive an email of your exercise program complete with videos and pictures.
