What Is Physiotherapy?
A physiotherapist/physical therapist/rehabilitation assistant is a healthcare professional with a University Masters Degree who is qualified to assess and evaluate your condition to accordingly carry out treatments. These consist of manual therapy techniques, electrotherapy, physical modalities, specific exercise programs and many other specialized approaches.
Have you suffered injuries in a motor vehicle accident, at work or while playing sports?
Are your physical movements restricted by pain?
Are you suffering from pain or discomfort anywhere in your body?
Are you having difficulty walking or moving around?
Are you suffering from migraines or severe headaches?
Suffering from pain or discomfort of any kind is your body’s way of asking for help. You should not ignore it because bodily discomfort rarely gets better on its own and often gets worse with time.
How Can Physiotherapy Help Me?
Physiotherapy techniques can help correct the problems that are causing you pain and limiting your daily activities. The sooner you start physiotherapy, the greater are your chances of successful recovery and treatment. Delaying physiotherapy treatment can often aggravate the risks of developing a chronic condition.
Many patients find immediate relief while others find that the correction of their problem takes longer when it has existed for several years. It is important to note that every patient responds differently to physiotherapy treatments.
Choose physiotherapy over drugs and surgery as a common sense approach to better health and mobility. It is the key to living an independent, quality and joyful life. Regardless of how quickly you respond to these treatments you will enjoy the drug-free results that millions of patients have benefited from for many decades.
