Patient Education

Welcome to Ace Physio’s Patient Education Forum
The health practitioners at Ace Physio would like to invite you to our Interactive Patient Education Forum .  This is where our health care professionals will be sharing advice and education on a variety of different topics related to your health and well being.

Our Registered Physiotherapists hold advanced certifications in diagnosing and treating conditions of the neuromusculoskeletal system including: lower back, pelvis, sacrum, hips, jaw, neck, headaches, knee, shoulder, elbow, foot and ankle, as well as nerve pain.

Each week we will be releasing Patient Education Knowledge Sheets, Exercise Programs, and Rehab Protocols.

Have a healthcare related question for us? We invite everyone watching to submit suggestions for topics, ask questions, and provide us with your comments and feedback as to how our team can improve your blogging experience.

Everyone is welcome, so please share this site with your friends or family.
