MORE ABOUT PHYSIOTHERAPY
What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the healthcare profession that is dedicated to restoring you to your optimal function. We achieve this through our advanced understanding of the body and how it functions. Physiotherapy incorporates manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, modalities and education to address the broad spectrum of conditions that we see.
What to Expect When You See a Qualified Physiotherapist?
A qualified physiotherapist will first take a comprehensive history of yourself and your condition. Following this subjective history, your therapist will carry out a physical assessment that will look at your overall posture, active mobility, passive mobility, muscle strength, joint mobility and any specialized tests to help make a final diagnosis of your condition.
In treating your condition, you and your physiotherapist will agree on a treatment plan that involves your active participation. Throughout the course of treatment, your physiotherapist will provide education and advise you on how to manage your condition independently and avoid recurrences or complications.
Do I Need a Doctor’s Referral?
No. Physiotherapists, like doctors, are primary care professionals. You do not need a referral to see a physiotherapist, but some insurance companies may require one to reimburse your costs.
What Is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial release is a hands-on manual therapy technique that helps to release restrictions within the fascial system (connective tissue).
Fascia is the tough connective tissue that infuses the structures and systems of the body. The fascial system is continuous from your head to your toes. You can think of it as a three-dimensional spider web that covers your body without interruption. This system becomes bound down through trauma, poor posture, repetitive strain and surgery. When restricted, the system can exert excessive pressure on the nerves, blood vessels, muscles, bones and organs. This can lead to pain syndromes, headaches and loss of mobility.
Craniosacral therapy is a manual/hands-on therapeutic technique that helps to re-establish the balance/homeostatic state that the body strives to be in during everyday living. It is a gentle hands-on therapy used to assess and enhance the function of the craniosacral system which is the system composed of membranes and fluid that covers, protects and provides nutrients for the brain and spinal cord.
Over time, the body develops restrictions/imbalances that exhaust the body’s adaptive capacity and produce a drag on the craniosacral system and through its connections, the body as a whole. Craniosacral therapy uses a whole-body approach to release these tensions, relax the tissues and help the body self-correct. Due to its gentle approach, craniosacral therapy is safe for all age groups.
