Physiotherapy takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well-being. This therapy takes into account the patient’s general lifestyle. The goal of physiotherapy is to restore and maintain functional movement throughout the body. This includes reducing pain and promoting general health and well-being in each individual.
At the core of the therapy’s success, is the patient’s involvement in their own care. Through education, awareness, empowerment, and participation in their treatment, a patient can take their treatment into their own hands.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy utilizes movement therapy aimed at restoring function and movement, and improving a patient’s quality of life. Our chiropractors are extensively trained in manual therapy. Therefore, this creates a hands-on experience that may include massage and joint manipulation, among other techniques.
To complement the manual therapy, we also often utilize various modalities proven to reduce pain, including hot packs and ice, and other types of therapy.
Physiotherapy can help restore both function and movement for people affected by an illness or disability. It can also help those recovering from an injury. Through movement, exercise, therapy, education, and general advice, many are able to find relief with physiotherapy.
