About Capilano Physiotherapists
Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease.

All physiotherapists registered to practice at Capilano are qualified to provide safe and effective physiotherapy. They have met national entry-level education and practice standards, and have successfully passed a standardized physiotherapy competence examination prior to being registered with the Physiotherapy College and Association Alberta.
The Problem of Pain
Pain can be a warning sign that something is wrong; for example, when you sprain your ankle, or when your back hurts after shoveling snow. MSK, or musculoskeletal pain includes neck, joint, limb, low back, bone, and chronic widespread pain. Fortunately, Capilano physiotherapists are skilled in assessing and treating these temporary and acute painful MSK conditions caused by injury. Physiotherapists can help relieve your pain.
What is acute pain?
Acute pain is temporary pain caused by injury. Your treatment plan for acute pain may include manual therapy, assisted stretching, ultrasound, acupuncture, and laser, among others. Exercise is good for the majority of MSK pain conditions, but not all exercise is equal.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain is pain that persists for a long time, and it can sometimes be difficult to diagnose and treat. When your pain persists there are physiotherapists ready to assist you with a holistic approach to your pain management.
