Physiotherapy is a regulated health care profession which seeks to assist people in attaining optimal functioning. It is a form of rehabilitation which is useful pre- and post-surgery, in dealing with chronic pain and illness, as well as recovering from injury. Physiotherapists also have a role in educating people in health promotion and disease prevention. In Canada, physiotherapists are currently required to have obtained a master’s level physical therapy degree through an accredited university program and to have successfully completed a national exam in order to be licensed.
