Physiotherapy offers many benefits to men and women who have experienced an injury or who are recovering from a traumatic illness. Therapists know which exercises and activities would be most beneficial in helping you regain your health and level of physical fitness before your injury.
Your therapist teaches you how to perform each activity and gives you the time you need to adjust to each one. Working with a physiotherapist gives you an opportunity to work out in a safe, structured environment.
It also gives you the peace of mind that you're working at a pace that will reduce the risk of re-injury while keeping you on track with your physical goals.
Physiotherapy often goes hand-in-hand with chiropractic care. As your structural form returns to alignment and balance, physiotherapy strengthens your body and provides the support you need to continue moving forward.
With each chiropractic adjustment, your body gets closer to its prior state of health. During the time your body wasn't functioning correctly, muscle strength and tone were likely lost. As such, the specialized exercises you perform during the physiotherapy program strengthen your muscles and help you become flexible.
The amount of physiotherapy you need depends on the severity of your illness or injury, how long you were incapacitated, and how much strength you lost during your recovery.
In the beginning, you might need physiotherapy every day. As you heal and resume your regular day-to-day activities, you’re going to need fewer physiotherapy sessions each week. If you experienced a traumatic physical injury, you might need therapy on a regular basis for several months. Otherwise, you might be well on your way to a full recovery after a few short weeks.
