Physiotherapy is one of the most sought-after treatments for pain that doesn’t rely on drugs or medications. Physiotherapy is a conservative approach to treating pain that is safe and effective.
Pain killers and other drug interventions can only mask the pain and exert its effects until the medication wears off.
On the other hand, physiotherapy deals with the root causes of pain and correct impairments to eventually help you overcome chronic pain.
Physiotherapists prescribe therapeutic exercises to strengthen your body and treat specific impairments that cause pain.
Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise improves chronic pain and allows people to live a healthier and more meaningful life.
Physiotherapists use manual therapy to influence your body’s response to pain and allow you to move better. It may involve specialised techniques such as joint manipulation, soft tissue mobilisation and more.
Through hands-on techniques, physiotherapists can treat various injuries ranging from muscle pain to more severe joint and nerve conditions.
Physiotherapists spend years becoming pain and movement specialists. You can overcome pain and improve your overall function through appropriate treatment and expert guidance.
Physiotherapists include education in their treatment to actively involve you in your road to recovery. In addition, physiotherapy will help you better understand your condition, allowing you to prevent pain and other symptoms in the future.
Technology advancements allow physiotherapists to use medical devices designed to treat pain and influence soft tissue healing. These modalities provide an additional tool in the quiver of a physiotherapist, allowing for accelerated recovery and improvement of pain and symptoms.
Modalities such as ultrasound treatment, electrotherapy, shockwave, low-level laser therapy, and more can aid your pain treatment and accelerate your recovery from injury.
Physiotherapists aim to provide quality care and build positive relationships with you to help you become an active participant in your recovery.
Having a positive outlook throughout your recovery can improve the success of treatment and bring a lasting positive impact on your life.
A physiotherapist works directly with you throughout your recovery. As a result, they are best positioned to assess your response to treatment and adjust the treatment approach to help you succeed in your recovery.
