Orthopedic physiotherapy is the oldest and most common type of physiotherapy and is focused on the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. “Orthopedics” is the study of the musculoskeletal system.

Those who have suffered injury or disease affecting the muscles, bones, ligaments, or tendons will benefit from assessment by a physiotherapist specialized in orthopedics.

Musculoskeletal injuries includes any injury involving a joint, muscle, ligament or tendon and in most cases a combination of all four.  A Physiotherapist with an orthopedic background will diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after a motor vehicle accident (MVA) or recovering from an orthopedic surgery (the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system)

This specialty of physiotherapy is most often found in your local physiotherapy clinical setting. Orthopedic physiotherapists are trained in: acute and chronic sports injuries, amputations, arthritis, fractures, treatment of post-operative orthopedic procedures, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, and spinal conditions.
