Tired of Your Body Aches? Why Not a Profesional Physiotherapy Treatment

Physiotherapy or physical therapy is a treatment for patients who are experiencing limited motion, strength or function in an area of their body. The patient may experience these limitations as a result of an injury, accident, or may have limitations from birth. Physiotherapy can help restore movement, and improve the quality of life for its patients.

Almost everyone could benefit from physiotherapy at some time in their lives. Day to day living is hard on our bodies, we continually put them to the test with sports and work activities, and sometimes experience injuries through no fault of our own, such as in the case of a car accident.

A qualified physiotherapist can help you recover from an injury or simply help relieve your pain and bring you more movement in the case of medical conditions such as cerebral palsy or after a stroke. He or she will do an assessment on you to determine what the problem is, take a medical history, and explain to you what is needed for recovery. Diagnostic tests such as xrays or an mri may be necessary to determine the nature of the condition. Next comes a treatment plan, involving the physiotherapist and you, as he or she will most likely give you some exercises to do on your own at home to help aid in your recovery and speed up the healing process.

Some of the treatment choices for physiotherapy are exercise programs geared towards the specific condition and patient ability and lifestyle, massage, heat or ice packs to assist with pain and reduce inflammation, muscle re-education, and joint manipulation and/or mobilisation to help regain movement in the affected area.

A physiotherapist may also prescribe the use of a mobility aid, such as crutches, a walker, cane or wheelchair as either a temporary or permanent measure.

Another instance where physiotherapy may come in to play is post surgery. Post operative patients having had surgery for a fracture or joint replacement may need assistance in re learning how to use the limb or joint, and physiotherapy can help. In the case of amputation, physiotherapy can help a patient learn how to live with and make use of a new prosthetic limb.

Personally, I have used the services of a good physio. After a lower back surgery, a physiotherapy consultation over a period of 3 months helped me to recover and regain back the life-stlye I always enjoyed.

Lastly, before you engage the services of any physio, ask around for referrals from co-workers, friends and relatives. Often these sources of information can be quite reliable. As well, go online and start searching for feed backs or reviews about the physio clinic. Online directories, like Google Places, Womow and Truelocal allows consumers to comment on their personal experiences.

Physiotherapy plays an important role in health care and overall well being. Whether you come to need physiotherapy as the result of a disability, an injury, surgery, stroke or medical condition, you will be working with a trained professional who can help you get the most out of life.
