Physiotherapy is a set of treatment methods that help you to maintain and increase your physical strength, movement, and overall wellness. It includes rehabilitation post surgery, injury prevention, and health fitness. Physiotherapy provides treatment for people suffering from cancer and lymphedema, incontinence, musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory conditions.
How does physiotherapy work?
At Toronto Physio and Wellness, our physiotherapy treatment plan starts with a thorough assessment of the patient’s condition and medical history, followed by diagnosis to remove the cause of the problem and restore overall well-being. Each patient’s condition is unique and requires a focused treatment plan designed for their specific problem. Unlike many other physiotherapists at Toronto Physio and Wellness, we focus on the cause of the pain rather than treating the superficial symptoms. We design a solution that can help our patients to maintain optimal physical performance and stay pain free. Our team of physiotherapists are highly trained and skilled at finding the root cause of injuries and providing treatments for them based on your lifestyle and daily activities. Depending on the nature of the injury or condition our treatments may include manual manipulation (hands-on therapy), electrical nerve stimulation, soft tissue massage, ergonomics, taping, acupuncture, and countless exercises and stretches to help you heal faster.
What are the benefits of physiotherapy?
Whether you are suffering from a chronic illness, recovering from sports or work injury you can benefit from physiotherapy. Benefits of physiotherapy depends on everyone’s specific condition. For some it increases their strength and coordination to live an active and healthy lifestyle. For many elderlies and chronically ill people, physiotherapy is the main key to reach a level of physical function through improving joint mobility, increasing strength and improved cardio-respiratory function. Physiotherapy increases your ability to live independently and boosts your physical fitness.
