Physiotherapy

physiotherapy

Physical therapy is a valuable tool to doctors and orthopedists who are helping their patients rehabilitate injuries or recover from major surgery. It is a non-invasive method that can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with other treatments. Physical therapy is a term used to describe a collection of therapeutic methods, such as exercise therapy, massage therapy, hot and cold therapy, and electrical stimulation therapy. It is designed to challenge the body’s musculoskeletal system, pushing it beyond the boundaries caused by disease, deformity, or injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need physical therapy?

There are many people who could benefit from physical therapy. Examples include athletes with overuse injuries, auto injuries, patients with arthritis, joint replacement surgery patients, and anyone who is limited by chronic musculoskeletal pain, stiffness, or motion range restrictions. Patients may also benefit from physical therapy if they are suffering from trauma to the body’s connective tissues, such as torn ligaments or tendinitis.

What should I expect during a therapy session?

The long-term goal for many patients is improved joint mobilization and less pain. You can expect your therapy sessions to gradually increase in difficulty, constantly challenging you to make progress toward your goals. Some patients require therapy for just a few weeks, whereas others need it for several years. Your exact experience will vary according to your needs.

Is there anything I can do to help improve the outcome of my treatment

Depending on your specific circumstances, you may be advised to adopt a more active lifestyle or perhaps avoid certain physical activity until you make a full recovery. The most important thing you can do to facilitate a better treatment outcome is to follow your Doctor’s instructions exactly as advised.
