What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy generally comprises three important phases: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration. Our physiotherapist will make sure that your treatment plan won’t bring you any pain or discomfort. This is achieved through several treatment services, such as ice and heat therapies, stretching, bracing, and ultrasound.
An active lifestyle is also dependent upon movement. Our physiotherapist will cater your treatment plan around specific movements designed to increase your strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. The physiotherapist will assist you with many of these exercises, but will also provide some simple ones that can be done at home. The end result of physiotherapy is living the life you want, free from painful limitations. That can only happen when you apply the concepts you learn from your treatments to the outside world. Our physiotherapist is as dedicated as you are, and will encourage you to achieve all the goals you set forth in the beginning.
How will Physical Therapy help me?
Our physiotherapists can pinpoint problem areas and create a customized treatment plan aimed at improving those areas. Through in-office sessions and at-home exercises, patients strengthen their muscles and joints, improve their balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the unwanted harmful risks of drugs or surgery.
What should I expect?
Everyone has different needs based on the conditions of their bodies. Your physiotherapist will work closely with you to evaluate your mobility, balance, range of motion, and severity of pain. Your physical goals will also be taken into account when creating your treatment plan, as well as any health risks that may be holding you back. At your initial evaluation, you may be asked to perform basic movements, such as sitting down, standing up, walking, lifting, stretching, or other motions. Once your physiotherapist has a clear picture of what you need, he or she will begin constructing a treatment plan to help relieve your pain and achieve your goals.
