The Information on Physiopedia is not Medical Advice

The information on Fairview Physio including text, images, video, graphics, and other information, whether provided by Fairview Physio or by its Editors(all such information, collectively, the “Content”), does not constitute medical advice of any kind, and is not intended to be, and should not be, used to diagnose or identify treatment for a medical condition. The Content should never be used in place of the advice of your physician or other medical professional, and your use of Fairview Physio indicates your agreement not to do so. Nothing on the Site or included as part of any project of the Fairview Physio Service, should be construed as an attempt to offer or render a medical opinion or otherwise engage in the practice of medicine. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Site.

Fairview Physio is intended as an educational resource for you to learn about issues relating to physiotherapy. There is absolutely no assurance that any statement contained or cited in the Content touching on medical matters is true, correct, precise, or up-to-date. Even if a statement made about medicine is accurate, it may not apply to you or your symptoms. If you are a patient or suspect that you are suffering from a medical condition, see your doctor for medical advice and diagnosis. If you are affected by any potential health or medical emergency, call your local emergency service immediately.

Fairview Physio does not recommend or endorse any treatment, institution, product, professional, physician, procedure, test, opinion or other information that may be mentioned on Fairview Physio. By using the Fairview Physio Service, you understand and agree that the Content is written and monitored in a collaborative effort by a large community of people that are neither employees of Fairview Physio nor controlled by Fairview Physio and the Content is constantly changing. Fairview Physio does not validate or otherwise endorse the Content, nor does it validate the credentials of the people contributing to the Site. The Content and the use of the Content by you DOES NOT create a doctor-patient relationship between you and any of the Members of Fairview Physio. Information and statements regarding dietary supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
