How physiotherapy can help you
If you’re living with chronic pain or are dealing with an illness, you should consider making physiotherapy and massage therapy a part of your overall health care plan. Sometimes overlooked, physio is a useful addition to most wellness regimens. Here’s what you need to know.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy helps people affected by injury or illness by performing a variety of movements and exercises. While many people have the misconception that it’s only for athletes, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Since physiotherapists focus on both rehabilitation and prevention, they work with medical doctors to help provide well-rounded treatment for all types of injuries and illnesses.
Physiotherapists—known as PTs—are health care professionals and can work in many different environments such as hospitals, schools, long-term care facilities and private clinics like ours. They offer drug-free treatments to people with chronic illnesses or those who’ve been injured in accidents and also help rehabilitate individuals following a major surgery. High-level athletes often have a close relationship with their PT, and people who want to be more active can likewise benefit from physiotherapy.
