Physiotherapy is the science of medicine that seeks to return patients to the highest
possible degree of personal physical independence. We work with patients with specific neurological, muscular, and skeletal
conditions and provide prevention programs to assist people of all ages in maintaining optimal health and physical fitness.
After extensive evaluation of the patients we plan treatment programs. The evaluation provides
crucial information about the patient's weakness, strength, reflexes, sensory perception, as well as their posture, and
work and recreational activities.
Highly individualized treatment programs are administered
for the patient; these programs are designed to relieve pain, as well as restore function and athletic performance, and promote
healing and recovery. After evaluation, the patient is treated through various forms of exercise techniques to improve flexibility
and motion, promote strength, and endurance.
We take great pride in watching patients achieve
health and strength they didn't dream would be possible. Physiotherapy and exercise are not just for recovering from disability,
but reaching optimum health and athletic performance, as well as protecting yourself from injury in work and sports activities.
Depending on the patient's needs, the doctor will provide heat and cold therapy, ultrasound,
EMS, or intersegmental traction to speed the body's journey to attain optimum efficiency. These four treatments
are briefly described below:
therapy is helpful for reducing swelling and inflammation. Heat therapy helps relieve pain, including localized arthritis
pain. Gel packs, designed for heat and cold therapy, replace old-fashioned hot water bottles and electric heating pads.
Muscle Stimulation (EMS):
EMS works by stimulating muscles by means of tiny electric impulses. These impulses travel to
the body from the EMS unit via electrode pads which are attached to the body. Timers on the unit rhythmically contract and
relax the muscles, allowing you to tone or work muscles.
Ultrasound is a deep heating treatment that is most effective in heating tissues of deep joints. It
is helpful in improving the distensibility of connective tissue, which facilitates stretching. Ultrasound machines utilize
high or low frequency sound waves that are transmitted to the surrounding tissue and vasculature, penetrating the muscles
to cause deep tissue and muscle warming. This promotes tissue relaxation and therefore is useful in treating muscle tightness
and spasms. The warming effect of the sound waves also cause the blood vessels to dilate, which increases circulation to the
areas needing healing.
This is like a roller
massage table which employs heat, vibration and traction. This increases blood flow to the discs, spinal ligaments and musculature.
This also stretches and softens scar tissue, ligaments muscles and intervertebral discs which helps the body heal.
