What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a hands-on treatment that aims to help people of all ages restore and maintain their overall strength, function, movement, and well-being. A personalized care plan is created for every client, tailored to their individual needs, to help treat symptoms of illness, injury, or disability. Physiotherapy can be both preventative and rehabilitative.
A physiotherapist is a professional who specializes in the assessment and treatment of physical injury and dysfunction. They are trained to provide treatment for a variety of physical conditions including acute joint and muscle injuries, repetitive strain injuries, chronic pain disorders, post-surgical rehabilitation and sports injuries.
Your physiotherapy treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine an action plan including short term and long term goals, prognosis for recovery, and type of treatment intervention.
Treatment sessions with a physiotherapist may include manual therapy, exercise prescription, electrotherapy (TENS, IFC, NMES (Muscle Stimulation), therapeutic Ultrasound, Taping/Bracing, Education, Dry Needling/ IMS and Acupuncture).
Our exercise prescription program consists of a custom program that is specifically developed for your needs. You will be handed out a hard copy as well as a copy sent to your email if you so desire.
