What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession directed at assessing, evaluating, restoring and maintaining physical function. Physiotherapists as health care professionals are predominantly concerned with the rehabilitation of physical injuries, disabilities and the promotion of increased mobility, functional ability, quality of life and improved range of motion. They accomplish this by completing a thorough examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical assessment. A successful in home physiotherapy treatment involves the communication between the therapist, patient, their family members and other health care professionals that make up a team focused on achieving a patient’s goal.
Physiotherapy is performed by a Physiotherapist and on occasion services will be provided by a physical therapist assistant (PTA) or Kinesologist acting under the direction of the Physiotherapists treatment plan. Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Massage therapist and Acupuncturists will often work together in conjunction to provide treatment for patients. In some cases, Kinesologist and PTA’s may provide physiotherapy services.
Physiotherapists diagnose and treat patients of all ages, from infants to senior citizens, who suffer from health problems or other medical-related conditions, disorders, or injuries that may limit their ability to work, or move and perform functional activities as well as their daily lives. Physiotherapists will take a through health history of a patient and complete a physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a treatment plan. A Physiotherapists treatment plan commonly includes prescription of exercises as well assisting with specific exercises, manual therapy, postural education, physical manipulation and other modalities such as ultrasound and TENS. It is the goal of a physiotherapist to work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing a treatment plan for healthier and more active lifestyles.
