Orthopedic Physiotherapy


Orthopedic Physiotherapy treats injuries or disorders of your skeletal system, muscles, joints, and ligaments, especially before and after surgery as rehab for your hip, shoulder, knee, ankle or foot. This scientific approach starts with a thorough clinical assessment, followed by appropriate Orthopedic Physiotherapy treatments.

Your orthopedic physiotherapist at Innova Physiotherapy in Hamilton will get to the root of the issue, help you along your recovery journey, and prevent a recurrence. The treatment goals are to provide pain relief, increase your range of motion, improve strength and flexibility and ultimately restore your body to full function.
