Rehabilitation Services


Physiotherapists are therapists that assess and improve movement and function.  Physiotherapists can assess an individual's physical condition, diagnose the problem, and then work with the patient to develop a goal-directed strategy for improvement.  

Some of the things our Physiotherapists can help with:

  • Assessing, diagnosing and treating difficulties with movement or balance
  • Helping to prevent and manage pain
  • Creating customized exercise plans to help improve mobility
  • Prescribe therapeutic exercise

How can I get an appointment with a Physiotherapist?

Are you struggling with daily activities or to complete tasks for your occupation?  You can now self-refer to this program, which means you can sign yourself up without needing a referral from a doctor or nurse practitioner.  Contact your local health centre, clinic, or hospital for more information, or self-refer yourself to the program.

Contact this Service

Our Physiotherapy services are offered across the NWT.  If you are located in a smaller community you may have to be seen by a visiting Physiotherapist, or travel to a larger centre for service.  Talk to your local health centre for more information.


Please send your completed self-referral form to, or drop your form off at your local hospital or health centre (Fort Smith, Hay River, Beaufort Delta, and Sahtu Region).
