When managing or treating physical pain or chronic conditions, we know the journey can be frustrating. This is especially true when the pain or discomfort inhibits our ability to live to the fullest in our daily lives. Seeking out therapies that can help relieve pain or restrictions to our ongoing mobility can help us reclaim a better quality of life, and ensure we’re able to enjoy the things we most love to do. The benefits of physiotherapy extend to a multitude of clients on many levels. The patients of Couve Health range from those seeking relief from injury, to professional athletes, and those individuals seeking mobility therapies to improve their day-to-day lives. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of utilizing a physiotherapist.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a range of physical therapies that assist in restoring movement and bodily function when a person is affected by injury, illness, or disability. There are several different therapies that fall under this type of treatment, including but not limited to massage therapy, kinesiology, chiropractic care, and other physical therapies. This type of treatment includes physical stimuli to joints, muscles, and soft tissue to assist with mobility, relieve pain, and strengthen muscles.
The goal is collective body work from a variety of specialists and practitioners to implement treatment plans for overall physical health. Our services and treatment plans at Couve Health assist with rehabilitation, the alleviation of chronic pain and discomfort from injury, disability, or illness, and assist with upcoming and ongoing physical training for athletes or those looking to push their bodies physically.
How Can Physiotherapy Help Me?
Whether you’ve experienced physical trauma in the form of an acute injury, or you’re a hardcore athlete, the benefits of physiotherapy span all walks of life.
Injury recovery - The benefits of physiotherapies for injury rehabilitation include treatment plans that help manipulate damaged soft tissues and joints to achieve a better range of movement, help alleviate pain and discomfort, and offer in-office and at-home exercises to ensure long-term results for continued pain relief and mobility.
Disability and illness - There are several physical disabilities and illnesses that impact the musculoskeletal anatomy that can benefit from physiotherapies. In conjunction with a patient’s primary care doctors, physiotherapy can assist in the progression of strength and conditioning to get those impacted by physical disabilities feeling more confident and ready to take on the world. The physical manipulation of joints and muscles can help those affected by these conditions to help them attain greater mobility and independence. We’re here to help them attain their goals!
Athletic Maintenance - Preemptive physiotherapy for athletes can help protect from injury, and potential trauma to their bodies.
