What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is designed to help patients achieve maximal mobility and function. Physiotherapists specialize in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries, conditions, and disabilities affecting the healthy movement of the body. Physiotherapy involves hands-on treatment that helps you restore, maximize, or regain the efficiency of everyday movement.
At Hodgeman County Health Center, we understand the importance of Physiotherapy in the role of recovery and maintenance of the quality of life. Mobility and independence after an injury or procedure play a significant role in recovery, as well as for your general health. It may be challenging at times, but it is ultimately worth the effort!
What do Physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists provide professional assessments of your physical health, while also offering treatment and education to treat problems with muscles, bones and joints, circulatory, respiratory or nervous systems. They make use of specifically designed exercises, equipment, muscle coaching, and hands-on management techniques. Physiotherapists help patients regain or improve their physical abilities.
One of their secondary initiatives is to act as a motivator or coach, setting challenging but achievable goals, tailoring treatment plans, therapy, and educational resources. Their goal is to help patients manage their acute or chronic pain, improve mobility, build strength, improve joint range of motion, coordination, and endurance.
