These modalities will re-establish normal movement in your joints, muscles and nerves.
An Evidence-Based Solution that’s Low-Risk and Non-Invasive
Sometimes we see patients who are already recovering from surgery, but in many cases, we can help you avoid the need for surgery altogether. Surgery can be high-risk and might not work. Prescription pain medications also come with serious risks involved and lose their effectiveness over time. We commonly see patients who have developed a tolerance to their prescriptions.
We’re happy to be able to provide treatment that’s safe and leads to long-term recovery, not just a temporary reduction in pain. Our treatment programs are aimed at assisting your body in healing itself naturally so that you can live better and make your stubborn and chronic pain a thing of the past.
We provide professional treatment for many conditions:
What is Physiotherapy?
A physiotherapist is a movement specialist, educated in analyzing mobility issues with walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and almost every other form of physical activity.
Physiotherapy is intended to relieve pain and strengthen muscles, and ensure that your treatment plan does not cause you any pain or discomfort.
Pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration are the three levels of physiotherapy. Some people are fearful of physiotherapy because they think it can hurt or negatively affect them, but this is not so. Physiotherapy is not meant to inflict pain; rather, it is meant to reduce or eliminate it entirely.
Your physiotherapist will design your rehabilitation program to include exercises that will improve your strength, agility, balance, and overall mobility and an at home exercise plan. They will be just as dedicated to your recovery as you are, and will encourage you to achieve all the goals you outlined in the beginning.
The result of physiotherapy is that you can live the active life you want, free of painful limitations. That can only happen if you apply what you’ve learned in your treatments to the real world.
Benefits of Physiotherapy
The goal of physiotherapy remains the same, regardless of why you are using its services to feel better.
Maybe you are dealing with after effects from an accident. Maybe you’re healing from surgery and struggling to regain your range of motion. Maybe your knees aren’t what they used to be, and you’re hoping for some help so you can continue on your evening walks or play with your children without pain.
Whatever the case may be, your physiotherapist is dedicated to relieving your pain and getting you back to your peak level of physical health.
Through in-office sessions and at-home exercises, patients strengthen their muscles and joints, improve their balance, build endurance, and experience pain relief, all without the unwanted harmful risks of drugs or surgery.
