What is a Physiotherapist?

A physiotherapist is a post-graduate professional program that takes at least two years on top of an undergraduate program. With a unique approach and focus on movement patterns and techniques, they are well versed in identifying strengths and weaknesses and rebuilding those weaknesses. Northwest Rehab Group's Physiotherapists use a variety of soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, exercise rehabilitation and various other techniques to make sure you reach your goals and get back to active life.

Physiotherapists help with musculoskeletal acute and chronic injuries and preventative care by manual therapy, exercise rehabilitation and education of healthy and active lifestyles. Manual therapy can include myofascial release, soft tissue therapy, mobilizations, and modalities. It is important to get you back to everyday activities and pre-accident status, as well as prevent injuries from occurring, and physiotherapy can help with that!

Common questions about physiotherapy:

Will I only be doing exercises for my treatment?

Each session is dependent on the patient's goals. Our physiotherapists focus on making sure you are comfortable while achieving your goal. Most sessions will consist of having some manual therapy time with your therapists. As you progress, less physical therapy time may be required with more focus on your movement and strength.

Will I be in more pain after my treatment?

Most patients leave their session more comfortable and confident with their movement. However, as with any physio therapy and active rehab program, there can be times where you can have more pain after certain movements. Don't be discouraged though, but please tell your therapists what gave you pain so they can better accommodate to your needs.

Do I need a referral to see a physiotherapist?

No, you do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist. However, if you did see a physician before your appointment, please discuss with your physiotherapist what their findings were as this can help better focus your treatment.

Another most common questions clients have is how physiotherapy can help them deal with their back pain? Back pain can be quite painful, and for those that have suffered from back pain before, it can seem like it never ends. Physiotherapy deals with pain by helping you to strengthen your back muscles and improve your flexibility at the same time.

How is physiotherapy treatment different from chiropractic treatment?

Physiotherapy has a wide variety of patients who can benefit from physiotherapy service. If you are suffering from an injury or illness and are interested in this form of health care therapy, it's important to understand rehabilitation process and how physiotherapy differs from chiropractic care.

In contrast to chiropractic treatments, which help relieve pain, increase range of motion, as well as provide exercise rehabilitation to correct problems. Physiotherapists treat the body externally - usually, focus on movement patterns and techniques and provide guidance on physiotherapy treatment exercises. Chiropractic treatments are focused on joint and neuromuscular health by assessing, diagnosing, and manually treating the bones, muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints that you use in your everyday life. Physiotherapists seek to improve the body's overall condition by treating the musculoskeletal system. For example, the treatment of osteoarthritis involves adjusting the joints to limit damage and encourage healing.

If you have suffered an injury or illness that has caused chronic pain and stiffness, you may be interested in both physiotherapy and chiropractic care. While chiropractic therapy can provide relief of many of the symptoms associated with these conditions, such as chronic pain and stiffness, it cannot reverse an injury that has caused chronic pain and stiffness. On the other hand, physiotherapy can provide relief and better understanding of the pain and stiffness and strengthen the muscles that were injured or damaged during the event.
