Physiotherapy Technology

Les techniciens et les techniciennes en physiothérapie rééduquent des personnes avec des problèmes orthopédiques, rhumatologiques, vasculaires, respiratoires ou neurologiques. Les techniciennes interprètent l’information sur la santé des personnes avec des limitations fonctionnelles et effectuent des traitements de physiothérapie (électrothérapie, massages, relaxation, renforcement musculaire, etc.). C’est un métier essentiel qui demande empathie, autonomie et écoute. Un emploi comme technicienne en physiothérapie convient aux personnes organisées qui ont des aptitudes en communication et en relation d’aide.
