PHYSIOTHERAPY KITCHENER

Physiotherapy is an evidence-based health profession that plays a key role in your health throughout your life. Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of conditions. Physiotherapy is effective in the assessment, treatment, and management of new and longstanding conditions, preventing injury, and promoting health and wellbeing.

Our Physiotherapists assess you using a detailed history-taking as well as physical tests and measures, such as range of motion and/or strength. They will then analyze your findings to establish a diagnosis. Together, you’ll discuss your current abilities and needs so we can plan treatments consistent with your goals and current health. Your treatment will incorporate the most effective approach and techniques supported by the best evidence.

Physiotherapy treatment may include acupuncture, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), NMES (neuromuscular electrical stimulation), manual therapy, and exercise. Physiotherapy can decrease pain, improve mobility, increase strength, increase coordination, and improve function.

Post-Operative Physiotherapy

Undergoing a surgery of any kind can be difficult, and stressful on your body. The recovery process is crucial, and can sometimes seem like a daunting task. If you’ve had orthopaedic surgery, your physiotherapy will impact the ultimate result you achieve.

There is often a pre-established guideline or protocol in place that your surgeon will want you to follow in the months after your surgery. Your physiotherapist should be familiar with these protocols, and will tailor them to fit your individual needs. Changes may be made based on how your body is responding to the treatment and healing process.

In a general sense, your post-operative physiotherapy treatment will consist of three stages: Early recovery, Strength and Range of Motion (ROM), and Functional Restoration.
