How can Physiotherapy help me?
Physiotherapy can give patients the use of movement and functions in the body that were previously limited due to illness, infection, or injury. It is often prescribed by doctors to help patients after an operation or in place of a surgery. In many cases, physiotherapy can have individuals back to performing their daily routines in no time.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is used to treat injuries, diseases, and disorders using exercise, massage, manipulation, and other physical treatments.
Physiotherapy can be used as a treatment for a number of issues. Patients can benefit from working with a physiotherapist and completing sessions to reduce or eliminate pain and gain movement and function in the body.
Patients are typically involved in their physiotherapy care. Education and participation in the physiotherapy treatment are two key aspects of the medical treatment.

When is physiotherapy used?
Doctors will often prescribe physiotherapy to patients as an alternative to surgery and medication.
It is often believed physiotherapists just work with athletes to help them recover from injuries. However, a physiotherapist can work with any individual suffering from injuries.
Physiotherapy can be prescribed for individuals post-surgery to help them get back on their feet quicker or to regain full movement in the body. In addition, physiotherapy patients may have experienced an event such as a car collision and may be recovering from whiplash.
What conditions or problems can physiotherapy help with?
The issues in which physiotherapy can be used as treatment are vast. There are three different types of physiotherapy and each can improve a patient’s health. The three types of physiotherapy include musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiothoracic.
Musculoskeletal treats conditions associated with back pain, arthritis, injuries, and post-surgery. Neurological helps patients recover from strokes, injuries of the brain and spine, and diseases. Finally, cardiothoracic physiotherapy is used to treat patients suffering from asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema.
Physiotherapy doesn’t treat just one area. Unlike medication that targets the pain, physiotherapy can help relieve pain by addressing other factors. This can keep the pain away longer or for good. Physiotherapy is a holistic approach that offers patients an alternative to expensive medicines that can have side effects and create dependencies.
