What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy (also known as physical therapy) benefits include decreased pain, improved joint mobility, increased strength and coordination and even improved cardiorespiratory function. Everyone can benefit from seeing a physiotherapist, whether you are living with a chronic illness, recovering from an injury or suffering after that weekend hockey game.
Physiotherapy increases your quality of life and gives you freedom in your home, workplace or at your favorite leisure activity. Physical therapy offers a range of specialized services of benefit to patients with heart and lung disease, traumatic and athletic injuries, amputations, arthritic joints, stroke, brain injury, spinal cord and nerve injury, cancer and pre- and postsurgical needs.
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 that means working with patients pre and post surgery, helping people come back from illness and chronic disease, injury, or age related conditions. Physical therapists also play an important role in health promotion and disease prevention. Physical therapy is the treatment of choice for many who suffer from pain whether in the back or neck, or joint pain such as hips, knees, ankles, wrists, elbows or shoulders.
