Physiotherapy involves evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a range of diseases, disorders, and disabilities using physical means. Practiced by chiropractors, it is considered within the realm of conventional medicine. Methods for diagnosis can vary, depending on the situation, though physical examinations and testing are often employed for evaluation. Treatments can include a wide range of practices, including various applications of soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons) work, heat or electricity, and assistance with stretching.
We begin physiotherapy with an assessment of the your condition. This typically includes a review of your medical history, and a follow up exam. Physiotherapy often follows a corrective course of chiropractic treatment or orthopedic surgery. Once corrective care has reached approximately 50% improvement, we put together a rehab program specifically designed for you. Occasionally we may need to send you out for diagnostic testing to determine which course of treatment will work best for you.
