Each individual has a unique way of moving that they have learned throughout their life. If one is missing movement, flexibility or strength in an area, another area will adapt and compensate. Throughout one’s life we accumulate these movement errors and they will eventually cause pain.
Physiotherapists offer manual therapies, therapeutic exercise prescriptions, and other treatments to prevent injury and disability, and to address acute and chronic injury and pain. The benefits of Physiotherapy also often include improved strength, coordination, flexibility, and heart and lung function.
At KIHC, Physiotherapy services are offered by Christine Campbell. She enjoys exploring individual movement problems, like piecing together a puzzle, so that a person’s true whole body movement pattern is discovered and addressed.
Physiotherapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario. It is covered by most extended health insurance plans.
