Are you looking to join a dynamic and experienced team? Want to feel appreciated for your work? Do you want to improve your movement analysis and manual therapy skills?
Ottawa Osteopathy & Sports Therapy is currently looking for a full-time manual physiotherapist to join our growing and dedicated team. We're a fun group that's serious about evidence-based practice. We are looking for the right candidate to start as soon as possible to assist with existing patient overflow and build a full time practice. Our current physiotherapists have a wait list of several weeks and are unable to take on new patients.
Over the last 14 years, our clinic has built a well-respected reputation within the Ottawa community. We have established relationships with family practitioners, multi-practitioner medical clinics, sport medicine physicians, allied health care practitioners and a very large referral base of over 12 000 patients.
The clinic staff are involved with educational programming with the University of Ottawa’s Sport and Exercise Medicine Program (teaching spine assessment in sport medicine and precepting for osteopathy and physiotherapy) and have spoken at provincial/national/international medical and allied health conferences. Additionally our staff have been part of many Canadian medical teams in High Performance Sport for national and international events.
Working within a multidisciplinary treatment model, we encourage collateral learning from other practitioners and hold in-clinic all-staff meetings to review recent research, manual therapy techniques and assessment protocols. Our practice provides quality, personalized services in the areas of injury prevention, treatment and improved performance in sport. A significant portion of our patients also consult for chronic pain, post-surgical rehabilitation and concussions among the usual orthopedic musculoskeletal conditions.
Our in-clinic and virtual services include physiotherapy, osteopathy, athletic therapy, massage therapy, kinesiology, running assessments/gait corrections, pre-post-natal care, dance medicine and strength and conditioning.
What We Offer:
We offer a flexible schedule, a guaranteed base salary package to support during the initial phase, remuneration commensurate with skills and experience, an educational allowance, support and guidance for continuing education, and a rare opportunity to refine your manual palpation and manipulative skills. We have a well-established demand for physiotherapy built upon our high-quality service and years of relationship building with referrers.
We have bright private treatment rooms with large windows, high quality adjustable tables, a rehabilitation gym, and a full service reception to handle scheduling, billing and provide administrative support. We have online booking and our clinic uses electronic medical records.
Our goal is to help you become the most effective therapist possible by guiding and supporting your professional growth. The successful candidate would be surrounded by experienced professionals with expertise in manual and manipulative therapies, movement assessment and exercise prescription.
The Ideal Candidate:
You have a passion for learning and focus on delivering structured patient appointments which exceed patient expectations. You are self-motivated, have the habit of educating patients and providing measurable outcomes using evidence-based approaches. You are comfortable treating without passive modalities like ultrasound and IFC and can work without an assistant. You understand that given the right tools, you can foster lasting relationships with patients and repeat referrers. You bring a positive attitude with you to work, respect your colleagues and contribute to team efforts as needed.
We require up-to-date registration with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, Independent Practice Certificate, an interest/understanding of orthopedics with some experience with sport injuries. Vestibular training and/or sport physiotherapy certificate/diploma would be additional assets but are not required.
