Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the application of treatment to restore and optimize mobility or physical functioning. The provision of physiotherapy treatment by trained and licensed professionals is governed by the College in each provincial jurisdiction and our physiotherapists are all members of the College of Physiotherapists of Alberta.

 

At Summit Sport Physiotherapy we have physiotherapists with unique skills and special interests and who utilize a variety of different methods to provide safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.

 

A few of the more common conditions that impair functional mobility are:

  • Neck and back pain
