Physical Rehabilitation Therapist (TRP) in Montreal
What is a physical rehabilitation therapist (TRP)
The physical rehabilitation therapist (TRP) is a health professional who works in the field of physiotherapy. He works jointly with the physiotherapist as well as several other health professionals, such as neurologists, physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, occupational therapists and respiratory therapists.
TRPs use several techniques to treat their patients, such as manual therapy, electrotherapy, exercise, pull-ups, heat, or ice.
TRPs have an initial 3-year college-level training. Also, they constantly improve and update their knowledge through continuous training.
Thus, physiotherapists and physical rehabilitation therapists share responsibilities for a single common goal: the recovery of their patients and the rapid return to their daily activities without limitation.
