Who can benefit from physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is for everyone who wants to manage pain or optimize function. Whether you are performing in an athletic, corporate or home setting, physiotherapy could greatly help you achieve your goals. Whether your sport requires you to be efficient in your skating stroke or get back in the game or your work requires you to lift loads or remain in a static position for long periods of time, and you are unable to perform efficiently without pain, physiotherapy is appropriate.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care discipline that develops expertise in the science of movement and neuro-musculo-skeletal injuries. Physiotherapists are skilled at assessing a condition to identify the likely cause of an injury or pain and have knowledge of many strategies to prevent further episodes of pain.
Who are the physiotherapists?
Physiotherapists are university graduates with a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy from the Faculty of Medicine. They must also be members in good standing of the Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec. They issue physiotherapy receipts for insurance purposes.
What to expect during a physiotherapy consultation?
The objective of the first meeting will be to gather as much information as possible in order to better understand the condition and the goals that need to be achieved. If the physiotherapy referral comes from a physician, the physiotherapist will take into consideration the requests and recommendations of the referring physician and will follow up with him/her in a timely manner. It should be noted that it is not necessary to have a prescription from a physician to access physiotherapy in private practice. Afterwards, follow-ups will be established in order to progress towards the achievement of the objectives by using manual therapy, myofascial approach, specific tools, targeted exercises, and many other possibilities! The physiotherapist will personalize his or her approach according to your condition and your progress.
