PHYSIOTHERAPY at Hillcrest Physiotherapy in Abbotsford
Physiotherapy is at the heart of what we do at Hillcrest Physiotherapy in Abbotsford. This rehabilitative specialty uses hands-on movements and mechanical force. Your trained physiotherapist uses specific techniques to heal injuries and restore functional mobility.
Steps for Successful Physiotherapy
While your physiotherapist always customizes your treatment to your needs, physiotherapy consists of a few steps that are the same for every patient.
Step 1 – Physiotherapy Assessment
First, you receive a thorough assessment of your injury or condition from a highly-trained physiotherapist. This exam starts with a history of your medical situation and covers how your current condition impacts your lifestyle. Many pain patients remark that they finally feel “heard” after talking with their physiotherapist at Hillcrest Physiotherapy in Abbotsford.
Step 2 – Customized Recovery Treatment Plan
Every body is different, and everybody is different. The same diagnosis of an injury or condition impacts people’s lives differently. And different patients respond to the same therapy differently, too.
That’s why it is so important that your physiotherapist develops a unique, customized recovery treatment plan for you, your injury or condition, and your lifestyle. Your plan will include a combination of hands-on therapy and modalities to promote the healing of your injuries or manage your conditions. Your physiotherapist may recommend therapies like electrical stimulation, ultrasound, low-laser therapy and joint mobilization, joint manipulations, or IMS, among others.
Your physiotherapist performs ongoing assessments as your recovery progresses. Your therapies and treatment schedule may change as you progress. Ultimately, our goal is to allow you to get back to your normally active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Step 3 – Exercise and Education
You will likely have homework between your visits here at Hillcrest Physiotherapy in Abbotsford. Your physiotherapist will develop a specific set of exercises to speed your healing, support your mobility, and reduce the number of visits you’ll need.
Your physiotherapist will also ensure you receive the latest information and education about your condition. This educational process builds a foundation to reduce the recurrence of pain and injuries.
