Why is Physiotherapy Important?
Physiotherapy can be instrumental in treating diseases as well as injuries. At Injury Care Centers, we leverage best practices in physiotherapy treatment to help our patients. Whether you have had recent surgery requiring physiotherapy, have had an injury, or are suffering from ongoing pain and discomfort, physiotherapy could make a marked difference in your health, your mobility, and it can have a big impact on your state of mind.
We offer holistic therapies, including physiotherapy, to help our patients achieve wellness. If you are interested in booking an appointment to talk to us about physiotherapy, we have six Florida locations to serve you, including Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Orange Park, FL.
Physiotherapy is not new. It has been used for thousands of years. We leverage physiotherapy best practices for injuries to the back, spine, limbs, etcetera, and we offer a tailored approach to wellness based on your unique situation with a focus on patient wellness.
What Does Physiotherapy Involve?
At Injury Care Centers, we use a number of physiotherapy elements, depending on the type of injury or illness the patient has. Options can include:
• Muscle stretching,
• Soft tissue massage or other massage techniques,
• Joint mobilization (gentle gliding) techniques,
• Joint manipulation,
• Physiotherapy Instrument Mobilization (PIM)
• Minimal Energy Techniques (METS),
• and other options that will help you gradually improve flexibility, circulation, strength, and mobility.
One or more of the above approaches could be recommended based on your unique situation. Many of our patients feel a difference in pain severity as well as mobility after a few appointments. Individual results will vary, and we work closely with patients to find the best physiotherapy option for their needs. It’s also important to note that many of the above physiotherapy options are options that take years of training, to risk chances of further injury. It’s vitally important to seek help from trained physiotherapist to ensure you get the most out of each session and that your injuries are treated with care.
It all starts with an assessment by a qualified physiotherapy. At your first appointment, we will learn as much as possible about the cause and effect of your injury or injuries. A treatment plan will be discussed and may be subsequently reviewed based on your progress. Exercises may be done both in the office as well as at home, as well as discussions about the above physiotherapy options.
