Physical Therapists in Canada
Over the past five years, the Physical Therapists industry grew sharply in both private and public sectors, mainly as a result of increasing privatization and a growing elderly population. In addition, the population of people aged 65 and older represents the fastest-growing age group in Canada. An aging population combined with increasing average lifespan and improved hospital care services will drive demand for industry services. In the coming years, many healthcare providers will attempt to lower healthcare costs, thereby stimulating demand for physical therapy, particularly for services that help patients with high-cost conditions manage their care at inpatient centres, instead of hospitals.
This industry administers medically prescribed physical therapy treatments; plans and administers educational, recreational and social activities designed to help patients with disabilities regain physical or mental functioning or adapt to their disabilities; and diagnoses and treats speech, language or hearing problems.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
