What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy evaluates and treats individuals whose ability to function is impaired or threatened by disease or injury. At Nazareth Hospital, your program will be personalized to your specific needs to help you overcome functional disabilities as a result of illness or injury. The goal of our patient-focused physiotherapy is to improve quality of life or learn to develop new strategies to live daily life if you have a permanent disability.
Physiotherapists are skilled experts to help patients with general orthopaedic concerns, such as sprains, strains, and surgical recovery. They are also useful in assisting patients to overcome physical impairments, functional limitations, or coping with difficulties of a chronic or permanent disability or ongoing disease.
Your physiotherapist will devise a personalized treatment program for you with the help of your physician’s physical therapy prescription. During your first visit, your physical therapist will assess your endurance, flexibility, muscle strength and tone, reflexes, and more. Based on your physical therapist’s assessment, a thorough treatment plan will be designed to help you meet your needs and goals for recovery. As you progress through physical therapy, your program will change as your needs change.
Physiotherapy aids in the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.
