What is Physiotherapy?
After an injury or during an illness, your movement and body functionality may be restricted. This is where Physiotherapists can help. Physiotherapy is a holistic approach to treatment that can even help prevent injury or illness in the future.
When is Physiotherapy Used?
Physiotherapy can benefit people in the following circumstances:
- Rehabilitation after a heart attack – Physio is commonly used for the heart and the promotion of good circulation.
- Physiotherapy has also helped with movement problems associated with Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, or a stroke. Physiotherapy can go a long way in assisting the brain or the nervous system.
- Physio has benefited individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cystic fibrosis and may help increase the amount of oxygen in the lungs.
- Injuries affecting the joints, bones and soft tissues will all benefit from physiotherapy. This includes knee and other sports injuries, neck, back, and shoulder pain.
What do Physiotherapists do?
Instead of focusing on the immediate injury or complaint, a physiotherapist will give an overall assessment to combat any underlying causes or related issues. Some strategies used by physiotherapists comprise of:
- Inform and teach. A physiotherapist will want to guide you about things impacting your daily life, such as poor posture, safe lifting, and daily habits.
- Thoroughly assess your condition or injury. Carefully determine your range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and strength. With this knowledge, they can better guide you and give you specific training and exercises that are personal to yourrehabilitation.
- Tailored physical exercises. A physiotherapist may recommend individual exercises to enhance your movement and health.
- Use of manual treatment. By skillfully using their hands and enough pressure they can assess the functionality of your limbs and ligaments. This will lead them to know better how to increase your body movement and learn how impaired a particular body part is. At times they will also use this as a treatment to strengthen your injury.
What should I expect from my first Physiotherapy session?
Your physiotherapist will begin by chatting to you to find out more about your medical history, current medications, conditions and reason for treatment. Next they will carry out an assessment to see what is happening, propose a tailored plan and suggest exercises or further physiotherapy treatment sessions if needed.
What should I wear for my Physiotherapy appointment?
As your physiotherapy session may require a range of movement we suggest that our patients wear loose clothing or even bring a change of clothes along with them.
