What you need to know…
Physiotherapy services come in many different shapes and forms. Exercises are often used to stretch or strengthen specific muscles, or large groups of muscles. They’re also used to achieve overall body conditioning. Sometimes physiotherapy involves ‘hands-on’ techniques where the therapist works on soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments, tendons) or bones and joints. Alternatively, sometimes a physiotherapist will use different machines or ‘modalities’ in the clinic in order to achieve accelerated healing or pain control. There are other ways a physiotherapist can help you, depending on what is needed…and that’s for you and your therapist to discuss!
