Your local nutritionist is a healthcare provider who has taken education and training in nutrition science. Your local nutritionist may work in their own private practice, a hospital, nursing home or school. If you’re recovering from a surgery such as a PCL knee injury, hamstring pull or lumbar discectomy, your local nutritionist may work with your local physiotherapist. They can help you create a wellness plan that incorporates physical, mental and nutritional health into your life. A local physiotherapist is a health provider who uses non-invasive techniques such as manual therapy and ultrasound to prevent and treat injury or dysfunction and improve mobility.
