What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy looks at your overall health holistically, aiming to treat the whole body rather than just the part that may be causing pain. Like chiropractic care, physiotherapy uses different interventions to improve and restore movement and function to enhance your overall quality of life. You can take charge of your recovery through physical rehab, focused advice, and education on health and fitness.
Physiotherapists focus on movement and the science behind it to identify the root cause of your issue. Physiotherapy can focus on both prevention as well as recovery and rehabilitation. For example, you may be referred to a physiotherapist after surgery to help you return to total health, but physiotherapy may also help you avoid surgery.
Physiotherapy can treat problems like back and neck pain and issues with your bones, joints, muscles, or ligaments. Due to its holistic approach, physiotherapy is also used to address lung issues such as asthma. If you are undergoing cancer treatment or palliative care, physiotherapists can help you manage associated pain, swelling, and fatigue.
What is the difference between physical therapy and physiotherapy?
This is a common source of confusion for patients, but these two concepts are very similar. Physiotherapy can include elements of manual therapy, part of overall chiropractic care.
What should I expect from physiotherapy?
Your physiotherapists will interview you, get a history of your symptoms, perform a physical exam, and identify a working diagnosis. At Rexroth Chiropractic Center, we tailor your treatment plan to meet your specific needs. You should expect to set goals and then work towards those goals with us.
You will complete various activities and repetitions to improve your range of motion or overall strength. You will receive instructions to complete these exercises daily or a few times daily. Repetition of movement is key to your recovery and improving overall health.
Depending on the nature of the treatment, you may receive mobility aids, such as crutches or a cane, to help you move around.
