Physiotherapy is a health care profession which assists people to restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being.
Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability. Physiotherapy includes rehabilitation, as well as prevention of injury, and promotion of health and fitness. Physiotherapists often work in teams with other health professionals to help meet an individual’s health care needs.
Physiotherapy is anchored in movement sciences and aims to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems. Physiotherapy can help you become stronger and more flexible, increase freedom of movement and mobility, reduce pain, stay active, and prevent injury.
Your physiotherapist will perform a comprehensive assessment based on their knowledge of biomechanics and movement patterns to identify the specific cause of your pain or dysfunction. Once a clear picture of your overall situation has been determined your physiotherapist will concisely explain to you the nature and cause of your pain as well as a plan to return you to your activities in accordance with your goals. Most often you will receive exercises and/or positional education to help to manage your pain and begin to increase your strength and overall function.
Future sessions will focus on addressing and changing the causes of your dysfunction. Examples of some sorts of treatment you may receive are joint mobilizations/manipulation, nerve mobilization, supervised and progressive exercise and a multitude of techniques aimed at decreasing muscle tension and improving circulation. Each session with your physiotherapist is individualized and designed to help you reach your specific goals.
