10 COMMON REASONS FOR YOU TO SEE A PHYSIOTHERAPIST

  • Injury prevention: Physios specialise in injury prevention and help reduce risks of experiencing an injury or re-injury by adjusting posture, form and movement patterns in a patient. Trust us when we say this, by doing this, they can save you a lot of pain, money and time.

  • To work on posture: There are various reasons for a person’s posture to become wrong. One of the most common reasons for frequent headaches in office employees is poor posture caused by sitting in a specific position for too long. Sometimes, an old injury can also become the reason for bad posture. Generally, a physio develops specific exercises to strengthen the patient’s postural muscles.

  • Alleviate pain: Sometimes, rather than an injury causing pain in a specific body part, a generalised widespread pain is felt by the patient such as in cases of Hypermobility and rheumatological diseases. Physios not only use the ‘helping hands’ technique to alleviate pain in these cases but they also educate the patient in how to cope with fatigue, how to best pace their normal physical activities and daily chores and hence, gradually increase their ability to do things.

  • Stretching and flexibility: For those who spent a lot of time typing on a computer and frequently forget to stretch, they should consider joining a stretching program with our physiotherapist to loosen their muscles and move their head.

  • Post surgical healing: Sometimes, in cases of complicated surgeries, the patient is unable to become active or exercise for quite some time and hence is recommended seeing a physio.

  • Management of certain diseases: Some diseases like Type II diabetes, heart disease and osteoarthritis are hard to manage alone and a physiotherapist can take you through the exercise program which is most suitable for your condition.

  • Management of a physical limitation: Some physical limitations caused due to age, car accidents, etc. can be skillfully managed via the training, devices, braces and other health-related accessories provided by a physio.

  • Recovery from hip or knee replacements: This is probably the best suitable reason to ever see our physio who offer pre-habilitation as well as post-rehabilitation services.

  • Feedback on muscular usage and movement: For older adults with back pain as well as athletes planning to return to sport or those who want to improve their performance in some way or the other, sensor technology devices act as an incredible tool allowing your physio to see the muscles beneath the patient’s skin and make it easier to give a more accurate feedback.

  • Post-partum exercise conditioning: For a female body, the continuous bodily changes during the months of pregnancy and having a baby can be a pretty stressful situation. Seeing a physio in such a condition can help strengthen areas that may have been stretched or weakened during pregnancy and is a safer option than a personal trainer.
