What Is Physiotherapy?
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.
