What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a form of treatment that focuses on helping people recover from injury, chronic pain and other conditions through treatment of muscles and joints. Physiotherapy does include manual manipulation of muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments, but it also includes careful assessment and diagnosis, heat and cold treatments, and at-home exercises.
Physiotherapy can be an important treatment in helping patients recover from common day-to-day stress injuries, accidents, and chronic conditions. Beyond recovery, physiotherapy can also help people achieve greater flexibility and strength to prevent injuries from happening in the first place.
