If You are Looking for a Physiotherapist in Ditmas Park, Here are Some Reasons Why We Can Help…
A physiotherapist is a trained medical expert who specializes in the function and movements of the body. He or she actively works with patients to overcome movement disorders that have been incurred through an accident or injury, aging or a birth defect. Physiotherapists also work with people suffering from amputations, brain injuries, cancer, stroke recovery, spinal cord problems, heart problems and lung disease.
Working with a physiotherapist can help you recover from an injury, reduce pain, alleviate stiffness and increase your body’s mobility. A physiotherapist will work closely with you to also help prevent any further injuries and reduce discomfort. Normally, the physiotherapist will listen to your concerns or needs during a consultation, evaluate your pain and access your mobility. He will work with you to plan the appropriate treatment for your condition. Generally, he will set long-term goals and let you know what treatment outcomes to expect with continuing therapy.
Common Physiotherapy Treatments
- Soft Tissue Massage
- Joint Manipulation
- Muscle Re-Education
- Mobility Exercises
- Muscle Strengthening
- Breathing Exercises
- Aid Assistance (splints, wheelchairs, walking sticks, prosthesis and crutches)
How It Works
Physiotherapists take a holistic approach, looking at the body as a whole rather than focusing on the individual factors of an injury or illness. The person being treated is directly involved in their own care.
For example, back pain can be caused by a number of different things, including:
- poor posture
- inherited spinal deformity
- bending or twisting awkwardly
- standing for long periods
- lifting or carrying objects incorrectly
A physiotherapist will look at your individual situation. As well as treating the problem, they may also suggest things you can do on a daily basis to help relieve pain and discomfort. They may also give you advice about how to prevent the injury re-occurring.
