Physiotherapy uses physical techniques proven to work by doctors and a deep understanding of how the human body works.
At Fraser Life Willowbrook Physio and Rehab, our highly trained and experienced physiotherapists create personalized treatment plans that help you in many ways. Here are some reasons why you might want to see a physiotherapist:
Benefits of Physiotherapy
Managing Sports-Related Injuries
Physiotherapists know that sports make you more likely to get certain health problems, like a torn ACL, a golfer’s elbow, a torn hamstring and more. So, they write personalized treatment plans to figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems that come from the injuries. Athletes can use physical therapy to strengthen their muscles, improve their blood flow, and make it easier for them to move.
Physiotherapy is a tried-and-true way to relieve pain. It uses exercise programs and electrical therapies like TENS, IFT and ultrasound. Soft tissue mobilization is also a good way to get the body back to normal and relieve pain from muscle sprains, tendonitis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Physiotherapists also help people with these conditions feel less pain by giving them a clear action plan and therapeutic exercises that work. Here are some common signs and symptoms that physiotherapy can help with:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Rib and chest pain
- Muscle and joint pain
- Immobility and tightness
Physiotherapists who are properly trained can assist you with determining what is wrong with your posture – and how to correct it. Physiotherapy doesn’t just treat chronic pain as a short-term fix; it also helps patients be more aware of how their bodies are positioned while they work. At Fraser Life Willowbrook Physio and Rehab, we tell people with posture problems how to improve their body alignment by changing their work settings.
Improving Women’s Health
Physical therapy helps pregnant women stay healthy and feel more at ease. Physiotherapists know the major changes a woman’s body undergoes during pregnancy can greatly affect her overall health and well-being. Physiotherapy is used to treat a number of illnesses related to postpartum care such as pain in the pelvic floor, incontinence of the bowels and fibromyalgia.
The best way to deal with pain from an injury is to avoid getting hurt in the first place. Physical therapy strengthens your bones and muscles, making you less likely to get hurt. Everyone can benefit from good physical techniques when they work or exercise, no matter how strong their muscles are (or how fit they are).
