Curiosity is reasonable if you have never undergone physiotherapy services. Every physiotherapist in practice is well-trained and certified to assist in improving your overall health and mobility. Below are six things you can expect from this type of therapy service.
1. Initial Assessment of Needs
Your physician will have recommended this type of therapy to help in the healing process of the problem that is ailing you, whether it is recovery from surgery, muscle injury, or existing disability. The physiotherapist will review the doctor’s recommendation to design a therapy program that is right for your individual needs.
2. Discussion of Treatment Plan
The physiotherapist will sit down and discuss the benefits that treatment can bring and devise a treatment plan that works for your abilities. The physiotherapist will look over the area that needs treatment and test your sensitivities. The specialist can better determine a starting point that is reasonable and safe. You will then commit to a schedule of days and times to arrive for your treatments. You will know the expected duration of treatment at the end of the assessment.
3. 30 Minutes Hands-On or Hands-Off Specified Therapy
The first 30 minutes of each visit might include electrotherapy, dry needling, massage, or other methods of preparing your muscles for exercise and improving your range of motion. The activities will be particular and directed to your exact needs, which are different for every problem and individual. You may not have the same action every visit. It is often a combination of therapies that prove the most helpful.
4. 15 to 30 Minutes of Problem-Specific Exercise
Not every treatment plan has to include a ton of exercises for the patient to complete each visit. There will be a specific exercise to assist increasing power, weight-bearing capacity, the range of motion, and pain control. The physiotherapist will document any progress or lack of improvement. You will input whether you feel it is helping and about consistent pain levels.
5. Assessment at the end of the Treatment Period
A thorough assessment will be done at the end of treatment to see how much progress has taken place. The physiotherapist will then report the findings back to the treating physician for further input.
6. Consultation to Determine Further Therapy, End of Therapy, or Different Services
A determination will be made to continue therapy, end the services, or recommend another helpful service. Hopefully, there has been enough progress made that you will be free to pursue healing on your own. General improvement is the goal of every physiotherapy practice.
