Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions related to movement and function. Physiotherapists use a variety of techniques, including exercise, manual therapy, education, and equipment, to help patients regain and maintain their mobility, strength, and overall well-being.
Physiotherapy can treat a wide variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal problems (such as back pain, neck pain, and joint pain), neurological conditions (such as stroke and multiple sclerosis), respiratory conditions (such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and many other conditions that affect movement and function. Please see our services page for a list of common conditions we treat.
During your first physiotherapy appointment, we will conduct an assessment to identify your condition and its specific causes. This will involve taking a detailed history and conducting a physical examination. Based on this assessment, we will develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.
The length of your physiotherapy treatment will depend on the specific condition being treated, as well as how long you have had the condition and how much it has progressed. Some patients may require only a few treatments, while others may require several weeks or months of physiotherapy.
In some cases, physiotherapy can be used as an alternative to surgery. By strengthening the muscles and improving the range of motion of the affected area, physiotherapy can often reduce pain and improve function. Depending on the severity and nature of the condition, we may recommend a surgical consult. For patients that may ultimately require surgery, it is widely understood that improving strength and function prior to surgery, leads to better results and recovery post operatively.
The frequency of your physiotherapy treatments will depend on the specific condition being treated, as well as how long you have had the condition and how much it has progressed. Some patients may require several treatments per week, while others may only need an appointment once or twice a month.
Physiotherapy treatments should not be significantly painful. Mild pain can be experienced during some treatment techniques and after sessions have taken place. If you do experience pain during a physiotherapy session, it is important to let us know so that we can adjust the treatment accordingly.
