Steps for Successful Physiotherapy
While your physiotherapist always customizes your treatment to your needs, physiotherapy consists of a few steps that are the same for every patient.
Step 1 – Physiotherapy Assessment
The first step is a thorough assessment of your injury or condition by your licensed, experienced physiotherapist. This exam starts with a history of your medical situation. Many pain patients remark that they finally feel “heard” after talking with their physiotherapist at Terranova Physiotherapy in Richmond.
Step 2 – Customized Recovery Treatment Plan
Every body is different, and everybody is different. The same diagnosis of an injury or condition impacts people’s lives differently. And different patients respond to the same therapy differently, too.
That’s why it is so important that your physiotherapist develops a unique, customized recovery treatment plan for you, your injury or condition, and your lifestyle. Your tailored recovery plan includes a combination of physiotherapy modalities that promote healing, increase mobility, and reduce pain. Therapies can include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, low-laser therapy and joint mobilization, joint manipulations, and IMS, among many other elements.
Your physiotherapist performs ongoing assessments as your recovery progresses. Your therapies and treatment schedule may change as you progress. Ultimately, our goal is to allow you to get back to your normally active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Step 3 – Exercise and Education
You will likely have homework between your visits here at Terranova Physiotherapy in Richmond, BC. Your physiotherapist will develop a specific set of exercises to speed your healing, support your mobility, and reduce the number of visits you’ll need.
Your physiotherapist will also ensure you receive the latest information and education about your condition. This educational process builds a foundation to reduce the recurrence of pain and injuries.
