You might have heard the term physiotherapy, but maybe you've been unclear about what it is and why we provide this service to our patients. At Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. we believe that preventive medicine is just as vital to our patients and readership as seeking expert chiropractic care when you experience a back, neck, or spine injury.
What Exactly is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is an aspect of healthcare that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and acts as prevention to disease and disability -- all through physical means. Physiotherapists happen to be experts in the movement and function of the human body.
In short, physiotherapy aims to assist patients in restoring, maintaining and maximizing strength, movement, and functionality, ultimately giving the patient an enhanced overall sense of well-being . "Physiotherapy" and "physical therapy" actually mean the same thing and the terms can be used interchangeably. Same with the terms “physiotherapist” and “physical therapist”.
Physiotherapy is a service we provide to our patients which acts as a complement to enhance the healing effects of Dr. Homer's chiropractic adjustment treatments.
We are proud to provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Therapeutic Ultrasound
- Interferential Electrical Muscle Stimulation
- Mechanical Traction
- Advanced Pettibon Spinal Rehabilitation Program
- Biocranial Therapy
Physiotherapy and How it Can Benefit You
Treatment often involves therapeutic exercise which will improve overall strength and range of motion. You'll experience more muscle and physical endurance. Your posture will begin to improve and correct muscle imbalance and joint immobilisation. Through manipulation and soft tissue massage, as well as incorporating stretching and trigger point therapy, we work to reduce stiffness, which goes a long way in relieving pain.
