When Should I See a Physiotherapist in Mississauga?

You should see a physiotherapist in Mississauga if you’ve been feeling any sort of pain in your bones, muscles, joints, or if you are suffering from mobility issues. Physiotherapists in Mississauga can also assist with soft tissue, brain, nervous system, heart, and circulation issues related to your lungs and breathing.

Physiotherapy is Non-Invasive

Physiotherapy is non-invasive as everything can be accomplished using physical therapy, exercises, and equipment. For instance, the use of resistance bands, massage guns, and swiss balls.

Physiotherapy is Collaborative

Physiotherapists will work with you and keep you informed each step of the way. Every patient is given a customized treatment plan to help you reduce and ultimately eliminate your pain. If there is an exercise which you are not comfortable with, you should discuss it with your physiotherapist right away so they can alter your treatment plan to one which is better suited to your comfort level as well.

Physiotherapy is Holistic

During your physiotherapy sessions, you will notice that your physiotherapist looks at you as a whole, rather than focusing solely on your injury. Physiotherapists at The Health First Group are trained by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario to provide the most optimal care for their patients. All our physiotherapists are trained to understand the patient’s individual needs, preferences, and fears. Thus, being able to fully assess a patient and provide the best care possible.

Other Exercises to Support a Speedy Recovery

We would highly recommend consulting your physiotherapist or doctor prior to performing any of these activities to help support a speedy recovery:


Swimming is a great way to stay active and it really helps you improve mobility by working all your core muscles.


Weight training, when done correctly, has a positive outcome on promoting healing in muscles, ligaments, and tendons.


Pilates is now becoming more popular in Mississauga and allows for one to improve their mobility, build their strength, relax, and relieve pain.
