Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy in Surrey Delta, BC

 

A Physiotherapist is a primary health care practitioner who utilizes extensive knowledge in areas of orthopedics, neurology, cardiorespiratory, pediatrics, women’s health, seniors’ health, post-surgical procedures, and sports injuries.

A physiotherapist will complete an extensive assessment that may include your health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, reflexes, sensation and cardiorespiratory status. In addition, the physiotherapist examines relevant x-rays, laboratory tests, medical records, and surgical notes. Based on this assessment the physiotherapist establishes a diagnosis and develops individualized goals and physiotherapy treatment programs.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy is a specialized form of Physiotherapy Treatment that involves a “hands-on approach” to assess and treat various musculoskeletal disorders.

Manual therapy is helpful for the treatment of spinal and peripheral joints and surrounding musculature that lack adequate mobility and range of motion. These limitations can result in pain, discomfort, postural dysfunction, and reduced functional mobility. Manual therapy focuses on normalizing joint arthrokinematics to restore biomechanics in order to provide relief for acute, sub-acute, and chronic pain conditions.

Manual Therapy can be divided into Articular & Myofascial techniques
Articular Techniques: Joint Mobilization, Joint Manipulation, Joint Traction, Mulligans Method.

Myofascial Techniques: Deep Transverse, Friction Massage, Trigger point release, Soft-tissue Release

EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION

Physical exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness. Exercise is performed for many reasons such as increasing growth and development, strengthening muscles and the cardiovascular system, weight loss or maintenance, and simply enjoyment.

Exercise guidance is essential in helping to enhance the effectiveness of treatment and recovery. It is used in the prevention, immediate care, management, and rehabilitation from physical injury. Conditions such as back spasms, tendinopathy, and muscle strains/tears benefit from exercise to reduce pain and improve function. It is important to provide patients with an individualized exercise prescription tailored to maintain the biomechanical gains achieved from manual therapy.

Goal-oriented rehabilitation programs are provided to patients to activate specific muscles groups necessary to regain optimal function and relieve stress forced upon articulator structures within the body. Exercises include active motion, strengthening, stretching, neural mobility, balancing, and conditioning exercises.
