The many aspects of your body
Physiotherapy is a direct, hands-on profession that has as its base the restoration of movement disorders. Your session begins with an assessment from your physiotherapist which entails a review of your medical history, an assessment of your present level of function and questions based on the mechanism of your injury or condition as well as your goals for recovery. Once completed, we design a program for your treatment.
To give you a better idea of the role of physiotherapists, here is a listing of the many areas addressed by the profession:
- Treating musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.
- Rehabilitation following sports injuries.
- Muscular re-education in the case of neurological conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy.
- Gait retraining.
- Training in the use of mobility aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes.
- Working with clients of all ages - from newborn babies to geriatric patients - to correct movement disorders.
- Advising and training parents and caregivers to care for the disabled child or family member.
