What is physiotherapy and how can I benefit?

June 20th, 2019

Physiotherapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physiotherapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Our physiotherapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it. Physiotherapy will also help anyone looking to improve their endurance, mobility and strength.

While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, our physiotherapists will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. These may include: manual therapy, exercises, acupuncture, ergonomic changes, breathing adjustments and posture techniques. Your physiotherapist will explain each option prior to administration and inform you of its benefits or harm.

The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.
