What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a treatment method that focuses on the science of movement and helps people to restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being by addressing the underlying physical issues. Physiotherapy helps prevent injury and disability; manage acute and chronic conditions; improve and maintain optimal physical performance; rehabilitate injury and the effects of disease or disability; and educate patients to prevent re-occurrence of an injury.

The definition of strength training is moving the joints through a range of motion against resistance, requiring the muscles to expend energy and contract forcefully to move the bones.
Strength training can be done using several types of resistance, with or without equipment. Strength training is used to strengthen the muscles, tendons, bones and ligaments and to increase muscle mass.
Injury prevention, however, is one benefit that is often overlooked when discussing strength training. This is unfortunate as it is a very effective tool for a variety of reasons. Strength training improves the strength of the whole body, especially the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. Stronger muscles and tendons help hold the body in proper alignment or posture. This protects the bones and joints while moving or when under impact. The bones become stronger due to the load being exerted on them during training. The ligaments become stronger, and therefore better at holding bones in place. It also increases shock absorption during dynamic movements.
In addition to our Chiropractic and Medical approaches, we utilize Physical Therapy interventions as well. Physical therapy can help to restore balance and stability to injured patients, through restoration of muscle function, biomechanics, and improvement of balance deficits, thus aiding in recovery and prevention of secondary injuries.
If you are wondering how important Physical Therapy is after an injury, here are a few reasons why you should receive it.
Reasons Why You Should Take Physical Therapy After Injury:
Helps Improve Your Mental Health – Going through an injury is not fun. The whole ordeal is traumatic and can have an impact on your mental health, which can slow down your recovery. Physical Therapy is a good mood booster. Besides helping you to quickly recover from your injuries, seeing yourself become better through Physical Therapy will make you feel better and positive about yourself.
Heal From Your Injuries Quicker – While some people would opt to rest and let their injuries heal with time, receiving Physical Therapy will make your healing faster so you can go back to doing your daily routines and activities much sooner. With the help of a professional, going through Physical Therapy will also allow your body to become healthier and have a full recovery.
Be Less Dependent On Pain Killers – Feeling pain is all part of the process after an injury, but it does not mean that you have to endure pain for a long time. Taking pain killers is a temporary solution and at times, taking them might be inconvenient or impossible depending on the situation. To help your body become stronger and resilient, Physical Therapy can help. It can reduce the pain and make you less dependent on your pain medications.
