Did you know that there are more than 20 thousand registered physiotherapists working in Canada? We work in private clinics, general and rehabilitation hospitals, community health centres, residential care and assisted-living facilities, home visit agencies, workplaces, and schools.
The month of May is National Physiotherapy Month and this year our focus is on healthy aging.
Fun fact: by 2035, approximately 1 in 4 Canadians will be over 65 years of age.
Healthy aging is important to everyone.
As we get older, we are more likely to find ourselves dealing with an array of challenging health conditions. As clinicians, we have gotten better at treating many of these conditions, but the costs to the health care system are monumental, and rising with the rapidly growing demographic of aging Canadians.
Physiotherapy can help. Let us help.
