Physiotherapy has a unique contribution to healthcare in restoring and maintaining physical independence by enhancing a patient’s functional capacity. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery.
Think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury, post-surgery or chronic pain that affects how you function every day. Physiotherapists help with pain, stiffness, loss of mobility and muscle strength.
You receive a treatment plan that sets goals for you. Physiotherapy treatments can include personalized exercise programs designed to improve your strength, range of motion, and function; joint mobilization and manual therapy to reduce pain and stiffness; hot and cold packs and modalities to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed up the healing process, Your session will be unique, because it is all about you and your particular needs.
