Physiotherapy is a health care profession that utilizes physical means (such as massage, heat, and exercise) to relieve pain and improve motion, reduce muscle tightness and support injury recovery. It can also be used to enhance sports performance. Physiotherapists can create a comprehensive exercise program to help you achieve your goals. Physiotherapists can prescribe specific exercises to address your injury and teach you how to perform them safely and effectively.
Enhanced Sports Performance
Exercise can improve balance, strength and mobility, and decrease fatigue, depression and anxiety. It can help with muscle weakness and stiffness due to injuries, improve proprioception and balance, and prevent future injury.
Shorter Waiting Lists
Studies have shown that reducing waiting lists has a positive impact on the number of people who receive physiotherapy. This can be achieved through targeted appointments, which reserve time for patients based on their individual needs.
Safe for Elders
Physiotherapy at home is ideal for elderly patients because it allows them to avoid public spaces, which can be intimidating or unsafe for those with limited mobility. In-home physiotherapy can also be customized to each patient’s unique health needs, making it easier for them to follow recommendations and complete exercises.
Active physiotherapy is a patient-centered approach that emphasizes the role of self-empowerment in rehabilitation. It incorporates therapeutic exercises, functional training, and self-management strategies to promote movement, strength, and overall well-being. It also provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to continue exercising and managing their health independently.
