Why is Physical Therapy Important After an Injury?

Physical therapists are highly trained in the assessment and management of injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. Having physiotherapy after an injury ensures that you will have a thorough assessment of your area of concern for things like inflammation, range of motion limitations and strength deficits. This assessment will guide your physiotherapist to create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Your physiotherapy program may include a variety of elements such as:

-Education about your condition and the best way to treat it
-Manual therapies such as massage, joint mobilizations and assisted stretches
-Exercises such as stretches, strength and balance exercises
-modalities such as hot/cold packs or electrical stimulation

Your therapy program will help to make sure that you maximize your recovery and function in as little time as possible. Whether you have been in a car accident, had a workplace injury or got injured playing your favorite sport, physical therapy can help get you back to the activities that you love!
