There is a lot to learn about physiotherapy, far more than can be conveyed at just one time. So we’re starting a mini series of posts that can help understand the value of what we offer.
Fact 1 – Physiotherapy is excellent at helping people prepare their bodies for surgery and fully recover from surgical procedures. This increases recovery times and ensures full mobility.
Fact 2 – With all the alarmingly high amounts of prescription rates in North America, physiotherapy comes ini as a drug-free treatment option. While there may be some drugs that can help recover faster, our physiotherapists use drug-free, exercise-based remedies to treat our patients.
Fact 3 – If you’re at high risk for falls, our therapists will provide exercises that safely and carefully challenge your balance as a way to mimic real-life situations. Our physiotherapists also help you with exercises to improve coordination and assistive devices to help with safer walking. When the balance problem is caused by a problem in one’s vestibular system, we can perform specific maneuvers that can quickly restore proper vestibular functioning, and reduce and eliminate symptoms of dizziness or vertigo.
Fact 4 – Many people believe that physiotherapy is great for injury rehabilitation, endurance training or recovery from things like a motor vehicle accident but other conditions such as obesity can be treated at HealthMax Physiotherapy. We have nutritionists on staff who can treat a wide variety of disorders and conditions, including obesity.
There are so many more benefits of physiotherapy that we will be visiting in it the near future, but in the mean time if you have any questions or would like to speak to us directly please contact us.
