How Physio Benefits Your Wellbeing
There are many ways physiotherapy can be used to improve your health and wellbeing. Many people don’t realise the role a physio can play and the benefits to be gained from it. Often there is a misconception that a physio is only beneficial for musculoskeletal issues and sports injuries. However, physiotherapy can be an effective treatment for a variety of acute and chronic conditions.
What Can Physiotherapy do?
Our team of Physiotherapists in Perth can treat a variety of conditions through assessment, treatment and prevention. Nearly everyone will experience the benefits of physio at some point in their lives. A physio can be used for musculoskeletal problems, pain management, injury prevention, orthopaedic conditions, pregnancy and postpartum care, health and safety, neurology and much more.
Physio Como helps to reduce stiffness, reduce pain and repair damage. Physiotherapists use different techniques including manual therapy, exercise, hydrotherapy, joint mobilistion and massage during a treatment plan. Manual therapy helps to restore joint mobility, improves the tolerance of soft tissue to loading and reduces stiffness. Dry needling and massage can be beneficial in relieving pain, reducing stress and improving overall healing time.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in many health care programs. Physiotherapists often work alongside other health practitioners such as general practitioners (GP’s), medical specialists, surgeons, dentists, hospitals, health centres, schools, sports clubs, rehabilitation centres and fitness centres.
The Benefits of Physiotherapy
Australian physiotherapists are widely respected for their innovative and effective techniques in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions, and their ability to improve quality of life for many people. Physiotherapy Perth provides many benefits including:
● Increasing function and mobility
● Reducing pain
● Improving strength
● Reducing the reliance on surgery and medication
● Reducing the risk of future injury
Evidence-based research is always uncovering new techniques in physiotherapy. This may benefit your wellbeing and play an important role in eliminating pain, increasing mobility and improving the symptoms of chronic conditions. Some techniques are more successful with certain conditions than others, but the goal is ultimately to improve recovery time and have the patient return to normal activities as soon as possible.
The role of Integrity Physio Como isn’t limited to the acute treatment phase, but also in management and prevention of future injuries. Physiotherapists have the knowledge and skills to educate their patients on how to prevent future injuries.
Physiotherapists understand that by listening to the body you can reduce the risk of an injury occurring. By paying attention to small aches, pains and stiffness, then treating these little issues before they potentially turn into a longer rehabilitation process, many injuries can be prevented.
As well as listening to your body, a patient’s movement quality is an important aspect of preventing injury. Physios understand that by assessing the body’s biomechanics (muscle length, strength and movement patterns), and making adjustments where necessary, aches or pains can be reduced and injuries prevented.
Physiotherapy can help you to reach many health-related goals as well as minimise the risk of injury. Working with a physio is a great way to receive guidance and improve strength through a series of exercises and techniques to benefit overall health and wellness. Como physio can provide joint manipulation and mobilisation, massage, rehabilitation and even dry needling. To book an appointment, contact our friendly staff at Integrity Physio today.
