Get Back To Healthy Life
Physiotherapy is a form of physical medicine that specializes in the restoration and maintenance of mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy is most often employed for the treatment of abnormal physical function due to an injury, disability, or disease, but there are many health conditions that can benefit from this type of medicine.
For example, a doctor may refer you to physical therapy after a surgery, to combat conditions that cause chronic pain, or after a major event such as a heart attack or stroke. Other conditions that may benefit from physiotherapy treatment include but are not limited to: sports injuries such as concussions, carpal tunnel syndrome, cystic fibrosis, joint disorders, pediatric conditions such as cerebral palsy, female pelvic floor dysfunction, and various neurological and musculoskeletal dysfunction.
What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy treats injuries, chronic ailments or physical issues using several established techniques.
Who Is A Physiotherapist?
Canadian physiotherapists undergo many years of training and are considered primary care providers. These health care professionals can assess patients, order tests and provide care.
The type of treatment received depends on the particular needs of the individual. A trained physiotherapist will evaluate and diagnose your particular injury, disability, or condition and then create a program that focuses on restoration, recovery, and prevention of further issues. The exact goal of this treatment will vary as, again, it depends on your particular situation. Some of the more common goals are to help you manage pain, avoid the need for surgeries, improve mobility, and rehabilitate after injury or trauma.
