Suffering from chronic neck pain, hip pain, headaches or attempting to recover from an injury? Looking to increase flexibility or joint mobility after surgery? Physiotherapy is the answer to many of these issues and more. 

Reduce Pain

Physiotherapy is a customized therapy program that reduces or eliminates acute to chronic pain with strategic exercises, manual therapy, massage, ultrasound, taping or electrical stimulation. It can help you recover and prevent pain from recurring in the future. 

Pre and Post-Operative Care

Physiotherapy can lower the risk of surgery. It helps you increase mobility through gentle stretching and muscle strengthening exercises. If surgery is a necessity, physiotherapy will help you bounce back faster so you can get back to your lifestyle as soon as possible. For instance, It helps patients recover from a stroke by improving balance and mobility, helping them spring back to their feet faster. As a result, stroke patients reduce the need for assistance in bathing, dressing, and personal grooming, so they can be more independent, faster.

Mobility Devices

Physiotherapy includes assisting devices to restore your mobility with support when required. Your physician will assess your condition and offer an Orthotic prescription for crutches, wheelchairs, canes, walkers or other devices through a customized approach and individual care plan.

Sports Injuries

Physiotherapy is an athlete’s best friend. Muscle mobility prevents injuries such as fractures and helps in faster recovery from injuries. It helps improve muscle coordination, restore vestibular functioning and reduces weakness, dizziness or vertigo.

Joint Mobility in Seniors

Many age-related disorders in seniors are hard to treat, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, knee injuries, fractures, joint replacement. Regular medication can have side effects that their frail health finds hard to deal with. Physiotherapy helps build back joint strength, improve pulmonary functions, clears fluids from lungs and makes moving and breathing easier, improving the quality of life, without side effects.
