Physiotherapy is a primary health care profession that promotes wellness, mobility, and independent function. Physiotherapists have an advanced understanding of the musculoskeletal system, how the body moves, which prevents it from moving correctly, as well as how to restore full mobility. If you have sprained your leg or have severe back pain, reach out to our experienced physiotherapists in Surrey to get rid of the discomfort. At Clayton Heights Sports & Therapy Center, our team has an understanding of how the body moves, what keeps it from moving well, and how to restore full mobility.
