Many of our patients haven’t heard of physiotherapy or the numerous ways it can help individuals. When you come in to see Dr. Chris Oliver at Oliver Chiropractic & Acupuncture, you’ll learn more about how this treatment can often provide incredible opportunities and improvement for you. By definition, physiotherapy is a process of accessing, diagnosing, treating and preventing physical limitations through physical methods. In other words, we focus on movement and function to help patients to overcome a variety of conditions and improve their overall ability to function better.
This is quite a versatile specialized area. It can help individuals struggling with a wide variety of ailments including those that they’ve had since birth, those from an accident, or those that occur as you get older. Some of the ways physiotherapy can help you may include improvement of joint function. Joint pain treatment is often necessary after car accidents, for example, or as we age. In some cases, it is very specific, such as wrist pain treatment.
Individuals suffering from chronic or acute conditions may see benefits from physiotherapy for other areas. Neck pain treatment, for example, can help to improve the overall function and movement of the neck itself, often necessary after an injury. Back pain treatment in this form focuses on reducing pain while also ensuring improved movement when possible.
When you see a physiotherapist, you’ll get an exam and a customized treatment plan. That may include:
Exercise programs that aim to improve mobility and add strength to muscles
Joint manipulation to reduce stiffness
Soft tissue mobilization, or massage
The goal is simply to help reduce pain, allow you to recover from your injury where possible, and increase your overall mobility or function. And, it’s highly effective.
