What can physiotherapy help me with?
At our Winnipeg physical therapy clinic, we treat many people from athletes with sports injuries to office workers with postural pain. We provide physical therapy services to people of all ages from children to the elderly, with many different types of health concerns. Our physiotherapists regularly treat people who have had car accidents, workplace injuries, or need rehabilitation before or after surgery, to name a few.
Physical therapy treatment
Physical therapy treatment can involve a wide variety of techniques depending on the nature of your orthopedic condition. Treatment programs at our Winnipeg clinic typically include hands-on techniques, education, exercises, and other modalities. Your progress throughout your therapy program with the therapist will be regularly re-evaluated. Your physical therapist will also ask for your feedback to ensure that you are comfortable with all aspects of your treatment program.
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that aims to maximize people’s mobility, strength, function, and health to optimize participation in activities of daily living. Physiotherapy also involves rehabilitating injuries, orthopedic impairments, pre and post-surgical conditions and many others.
What to expect at your first physiotherapy visit
When you arrive at our clinic for your first physiotherapy session, we will collect some basic information from you to start your file. We will also find details about any insurance coverage you may have for physiotherapy and go over it with you. We will ask you to fill out an intake form that covers basic medical history and details about your area of complaint before the therapy. Once this is complete, you will go through to your private assessment room.
Your physiotherapist will go over your intake form and ask you about your area of concern. Any information that you share with your physiotherapist is confidential. Your physiotherapist will then perform a physical therapy assessment of things like your movement, strength, balance, and flexibility, depending on the nature of your injury or impairment.
Your physiotherapist will also palpate your area of concern to check for signs of inflammation, tenderness, tension, or spasm. This information will help your physical therapist determine what the cause of your physical impairment is and what can be done to treat it. Based on this assessment, your physiotherapist will develop your individualized physical therapy plan. The main goal of this physical therapy plan is to get you back to the activities that you care about!
