Imagine a career where no two days are the same…

Each day the patients you work with have new stories as to why they are at the clinic. One day, you may be working with someone who was in a serious car accident and is now on the road to recovery.

Or it could be an elderly person who had a bad fall or knee replacement and you are helping them gain their strength to improve their quality of life. Physiotherapy Assistants never have the same day. Each day in the clinic is always different.

You are a part of a highly skilled team of healthcare professionals who help people gain back the quality of life they once enjoyed. As a member of a team, you work closely with the Physiotherapist and other Physiotherapy Assistants to help patients with their care. Most importantly, you get to be their cheerleader each and every step of the way, helping them travel their road to recovery.

Does this sound like a rewarding career to you?

If so, then start a career as an Physiotherapy Assistant.
