Are sport physiotherapists in every clinic in Newmarket and the surrounding region?

Sport Physiotherapist is not a protected title therefore any Physiotherapist can call themselves a Sport Physiotherapist. However, only approximately 150 Physiotherapists in Canada have a Diploma of Sports Physiotherapy and are accredited at this highest level for rehabilitation/etc. of sports injury. This level of Diploma is examined under the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Sports Physiotherapy division using nationally standardised written and practical examination.
