Every physiotherapist undergoes some training that is intended to provide the basic knowledge needed to assess and treat common conditions, including arthritis. When physiotherapists begin their careers most take educational courses and undergo training focusing on an area of personal interest.

IMG5609.jpgPhysiotherapists keep current in their area of interest because treatment is constantly evolving as a result of research. It is impossible to keep current or develop expertise in every area of physiotherapy practice so it is best to seek out a physical therapist with expertise in your condition.

Patrick Embley, the owner of Advanced Physiotherapy in White Rock worked at Mary Pack for more than 13 years prior to opening Advanced Physiotherapy in White Rock.
