Physiotherapy is a hands-on approach to the prevention and treatment of injury and disease with emphasis on the promotion of mobility and function to enhance health, wellness and quality of life.  Physiotherapy emerges from the science of movement – it strives to practice a holistic approach to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems.

The Canadian Physiotherapy Association describes physiotherapists as “primary health care professionals who combine their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it moves, with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability.”  These specialized clinical skills focus on facilitating optimal function of the body’s joints, muscles, connective tissues and motor patterns.

Physiotherapy Services at OC3 include:




Our clinic provides evidence based Physiotherapy in a convenient location just east of Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa.  We’re specifically located in the “Golden Triangle” region of Centretown, just west of the Rideau Canal and a close walk to Pretoria Bridge, University of Ottawa, Somerset Bridge, Ottawa City Hall, the Glebe, and the Parliament Buildings.
