Imagine yourself walking, running and doing your favourite activities, all without pain or stiffness. For all these years, we have been trying our best to make this dream of yours come true.
In our eyes, the best definition of physiotherapy is maximizing someone’s physical potential. But we go beyond that in providing emotional support and an empathetic approach to dealing with various conditions.
The first session with a physiotherapist is essential in helping to structure and plan your recovery. It’s an opportunity for you to ask questions about how long your recovery may take and what you can do to help that. The physiotherapist will need to examine the area that’s affected and also determine if they’re able to help.
Summer brings many more opportunities for us to get outside and help increase our physical and mental fitness. If you experience pain with these activities, it can feel like a barrier to enjoying them. Physiotherapy can be essential to dealing with those barriers and getting you back on the road to recovery.
If you’re finding it difficult to enjoy the activities, such as playing tennis, walking or running, it may be a good idea for you to come and see one of our physiotherapists.
Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of individuals suffering from injuries or long-term conditions or disabilities. Treatments include Hands-on therapy, exercises, movements and education and enable people to return to the activities in life that they value the most.
People recovering from accidents or diseases or who just want to stay active as they age call on the skills of a physical therapist to help them manage their pain, grow stronger, and become more mobile.
Physical therapists, also called PTs, work with people of all ages who have pain or limitations from various sources, including injuries, amputations, strokes, or illness.
PTs design an individualized plan for each patient using exercises, stretching, massage, and hands-on therapy. They also teach patients to use equipment like canes or prosthetics. PTs always review a patient’s medical history before making a plan and then track the patients’ progress during treatment.
Educating patients and their families about what to expect from the recovery process is a critical part of this job.
Physical therapists work on a team of health care professionals and oversee the work of physical therapy aides and assistants.
They work in clinics, hospitals, home health care, and nursing homes, and may specialize in areas like pediatrics or sports medicine. Lifting and moving people and heavy objects are all part of the day’s work.

Physiotherapy aims to reduce and eliminate all forms of pain, physical dysfunction or injury that a patient may present with. Most importantly, it also aims to reduce the possibility of pain or injuries becoming more deep-rooted and severe and prevent a reoccurrence of these symptoms later. Physiotherapy treatment usually involves a 30-minute session. Having diagnosed the problem, the physiotherapist attends to the patient by one or more methods such as manipulation, massage, exercise therapy and/or other modalities such as ultrasound, laser or laser or differential therapy.
