Physical therapy is a highly successful, medication-free treatment of injuries, diseases and issues with the muscles and joints. Our physical therapist team uses specific exercises, stretching, pressure and massage to alleviate pain and assist in the body’s healing process.
Physiotherapists are trained professionals that can assess your condition and provide ongoing care throughout your recovery process. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is used to treat conditions caused by daily wear and tear, accidents, postural issues, and sports injuries to name a few.
The Benefits of Physiotherapy
Although the effects of physiotherapy can improve all aspects of your life, the main benefits of our services include:
- Increasing your overall mobility and health
- Preventing disease and injury
- Managing pain from acute and chronic conditions
- Rehabilitating injuries with therapeutic exercise programs
- Educating patients on the inner workings of their bodies to prevent the re-occurrence of injuries
What to Expect from Your First Appointment
During your first appointment, your physical therapist will ask you a series of important questions to help create an overall image of your body’s condition. We will examine you physically and then discuss our findings, diagnosing the cause of the problem and creating a custom treatment plan. Some patients benefit from receiving massage therapy alongside physiotherapy sessions.
An Evidence-Based Approach to Wellness
By helping you understand the cause of your pain and discomfort, our physiotherapists will teach you preventative methods for the future. Each patient is unique which is why we offer individualised one-on-one care that matches your personal goals. During the follow-up appointments, we will work within a range of treatment options, including exercise, manipulation, stretching and soft tissue massage.
