At Sonder Mind and Body we recognize the need for holistic care. Our practitioners provide a variety of services and today we talk with Dr. Corey Hillman.

What is Physiotherapy?

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Physical Therapy (or Physiotherapy)? Maybe you think of the Physical Therapist you worked with in high school after tearing your ACL? Perhaps you recall the PT who helped your grandmother learn to walk again after her stroke? Maybe you’ve never been to a Physio and think it’s just for the serious athletes and not for the ‘weekend warrior” like you?

If you aren’t quite sure what physical therapy is, you are not alone! While there are different and diverse patient groups that a Physical Therapist may help, each patient has one thing in common: they want to experience movement free of pain and enjoy activities and a lifestyle that gives their life meaning. A Doctor of Physical Therapy can be your primary provider for all things musculoskeletal.

To put it simply, Physio’s are pain and movement doctors with an education grounded in the studies of anatomy, kinesiology (the study of movement), manual (hands-on) therapy, and nutrition. Physio Therapists empower you to experience an active, flourishing lifestyle. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort reach out to Corey to talk through it and see if there is a way physical therapy can help. Learn More
