Physical Therapy

Meitra’s Department of Physical Therapy, is a sub-specialty under the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, that consists of skilled physical therapists who work closely with our physicians and manage a range of injuries and disorders. Physiotherapists are regulated health-care professionals who work with clients of all ages in a diversity of settings to provide health services in wellness, acute care, rehabilitation and long-term care. 

Physiotherapists work on early mobility, assessing and treating acute respiratory and neurological concerns, managing musculoskeletal impairments, weaning patients from supplemental oxygen and educating our patients about self-management and home exercise programs. They strive to achieve optimal health outcomes and use resources efficiently and safely in their own areas of expertise.

At Meitra, you’ll receive individualized care from your physiotherapist. No two patients are alike, and so we work with you and your doctor to create a customized treatment plan based on your symptoms and goals. 

The Department utilizes cutting-edge technologies, including the Robotic Gait Trainer, VR Rehabilitation and Biofeedback systems to aid in overall patient care and recovery. Together, our team of experts creates a customized plan to help patients achieve the highest level of function and offers one-on-one care.
