Depending on the extent of the injury and the location, most people will need physical therapy to heal properly without any complications that can lead to setbacks. In physiotherapy, professionals are trained to evaluate and treat abnormal physical function related to an injury, disability, disease or condition. Your surgeon or GP may refer you for this treatment. Alternatively, you can schedule your own consultation to find the treatment would best suit your needs.
Injuries that need physiotherapy include:
When you visit the practice, you can expect to receive quality care. For your initial visit, we will discuss your main concerns and then proceed for a physical examination. This includes discussing your health history and certain testing procedures; an evaluation of posture, movement, flexibility test, and of muscle and joint motion and performance. After that, you will receive a clinical diagnosis, and prognosis if you do not already have one, a plan of care and short and long term rehabilitation goals. Thereafter, you will receive physical therapy treatment and intervention based on your physiotherapist's evaluation and diagnosis, and most importantly, receive self-management recommendations going forward.
