Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy (also known as physical therapy) works in a variety of musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardio-respiratory conditions. Professional certified Physiotherapists applied the combination of electro-therapeutic modalities that include Ultrasound or TENS along with therapeutic exercises, and hands-on techniques referred to as manual therapy (deep soft tissue techniques, hands-on joint and muscle range of motion and stretching) or manipulation (a quick small thrust to a "stuck joint" to restore mobility).

 

Physiotherapy is used to improve a patient's physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, physical intervention, rehabilitation, and patient education. It addresses the illnesses or injuries that limit a person's abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives

Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Treatment can be for problems caused by injury, disease, or disability. Here are some examples:

 

  • Neck and back pain caused by problems in the muscles and skeleton
  • Problems in the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments, such as arthritis and the after-effects of amputation
  • Lung problems such as asthma
  • Disability as a result of an accident, workplace injury or heart problems
  • Pelvic issues, such as bladder and bowel problems related to childbirth
  • Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain or spine, or due to diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis
  • Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of muscle strength, for example during cancer treatment, or palliative care
