Physiotherapy, commonly known as physical therapy, uses proven techniques and exercise to help restore function and movement to anyone affected by an injury, disability or health condition. The goal of physiotherapy is to help and teach people how to balance, move and function safely, as those who suffer from chronic pain often become stiff from not moving around for a while. Physiotherapy will help people become stronger and reduce suffering.
Physiotherapy can help you avoid surgery, reduce your medication, manage your pain and reduce the risk of injury. At The Brooks Clinic, our physiotherapists will combine hands-on clinical skills with their in-depth knowledge of how the body works, to assess, diagnose and treat your symptoms.
As Physiotherapy covers a wide range of health problems, our therapists often design a customized care plan for each patient, concentrating their expertise on the particular injured area. A therapist works with each patient to understand the particular pain you are experiencing, what is causing it, and what can be done to manage it. They will ask questions and talk about pain issues as you are going through your exercise routine.
Physiotherapy may actually be one of the best pain management options for your chronic pain, as it is proven to be highly effective in alleviating all types of chronic musculoskeletal and neuropathic types of painful conditions, including:
