How can Physiotherapy help you?

Physiotherapy can be helpful for people of all ages with a wide range of health conditions, including problems affecting the:

  • Bones, joints and soft tissue – such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and sports injuries.
  • Brain or nervous system – such as movement problems resulting from a stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease.
  • Heart and Circulation – such as rehabilitation after a heart attack.
  • Lungs and Breathing – such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis.

Physical Therapists are registered healthcare professionals who specialize in how the human body moves. Physical Therapists treat people who have a loss of function from health conditions, injuries, or disabilities.

One key aspect in all Physical Therapy is education. Throughout your treatment, your Physical Therapist will teach you:

  • About your body and how it moves.
  • How to do exercises safely and effectively.
  • How to manage your condition and prevent future problems. (College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia)

Physiotherapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level. 

The goal of physiotherapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going upstairs, or getting in and out of bed. 

Physiotherapy can help with recovery after some surgeries. Your doctor may suggest physiotherapy for injuries or long-term health problems such as arthritis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Physiotherapy may be used alone or with other treatments.
