Physiotherapist can help you if you're recovering from a recent injury, living with an ongoing condition, or dealing with the discomfort you've been experiencing, physiotherapy can help you get back to your everyday life.
RECOVER FROM INJURY
Physiotherapy is a drug-free health care practice. Physiotherapists work in partnership with individuals of all ages to break down the barriers to physical function. Whether it’s from a recreational activity, a workplace injury, or the toll of daily life, an injury can keep you from the activities you love.
Physiotherapists also play an important role in health promotion and disease prevention. Physiotherapy is the treatment of preference for many who suffer from pain whether in the back pain or neck pain, or arthritis in hips, knees, or back or shoulders … physiotherapy helps manage and prevent both acute and chronic pain. Depending on your condition, this may include mobilization, manual therapy, work hardening, techniques and modalities to reduce pain, acupuncture, corrective techniques to improve heart and lung function and cardiac conditioning, demonstration of therapeutic exercise, and education about your condition, treatment plan and prognosis for getting better.

What to expect from physiotherapy?
At the end of the assessment, your physiotherapist may give you a physical diagnosis. You can ask questions like “How long do you think it will take for me to get better?” Your physiotherapist will also let you know that it is normal if you are sore after the assessment for a day or so, and you may also feel tired immediately afterwards. They will also propose a treatment plan based on your goals.
