With day to day activities like lifting, bending, twisting and sports related function in hockey, basketball, soccer or golf, we often came to take our body function for granted. Imagine that one day you are not able to twist your arm, or even sit still for a mere second due to pain. This creates a huge disruption in our day to day activities.
At Amberlea Physiotherapy in Pickering we believe in fixing the root cause of the issue as well as learning about our body in order to create a long sustaining recovery. Physiotherapy is a form of therapy to restore and regain physical function in individuals. We believe in attention to detail and that Physiotherapists are experts in handling any muscular and skeletal injuries that arises due to various issues. As experts, we believe that knowing the root cause of the injury or pain will allow us to design a personalized treatment plan that works with the specific condition. As well, we believe that everyone is entitled to have a full and proper education of the cause of their injuries, such that clients understand why injuries occur and feel in control of their condition.
In order to cater to each unique individual, treatment usually consists of various techniques plus specialized skills working in conjunction to achieve maximal recovery. The physiotherapist will combine various techniques such as active therapy, exercise conditioning, hands on soft tissue techniques, manual therapy, active and passive stretching, joint mobilization, as well as different modalities such as ultrasound therapy, interferential current (IFC), etc.
