Physiotherapy, also called Physical Therapy is a healthcare profession for helping patients to restore or improve or maintain their strength and flexibility in their muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. Patients may have lost some strength or flexibility due to illness or injury.

Pain alleviation, strengthening, and functional integration are the three degrees of physiotherapy. You must participate in both in-office and at-home exercises for your physiotherapy to be effective. Good posture, strong muscles, and strong joints help to maintain balance, endurance, and pain avoidance.

Physiotherapy is a primary care, autonomous, client-focused health profession dedicated to improving quality of life by:

  • Promoting optimal mobility, physical activity and overall health and wellness;
  • Preventing disease, injury, and disability;
  • Managing acute and chronic conditions, activity limitations, and participation restrictions;
  • Improving and maintaining optimal functional independence and physical performance;
  • Rehabilitating injury and the effects of disease or disability with therapeutic exercise programs and other interventions; and
  • Educating and planning maintenance and support programs to prevent re-occurrence, re-injury or functional decline.

Who is a Physiotherapist?

A physiotherapist is a movement specialist. They have been trained to evaluate mobility issues caused by walking, running, jumping, bending, stretching, and virtually any other form of physical activity!

Our physiotherapists will be just as committed to your recovery as you are, and they will encourage you to reach all of your objectives.

Our physiotherapy programs are designed to help treat the cause of your pain and mobility issues, and we tailor our treatment to the individual patient. Our wide range of Physiotherapy options allows us to meet the needs of almost any patient, with services including Spinal Decompression, Vestibular Rehabilitation, Shockwave Therapy, Pre- and Post-Operative Physiotherapy, and more.

Manual Physiotherapy and Exercise Therapy

Manual therapy and exercise therapy are two crucial components of physiotherapy. Manual therapy involves hands-on techniques that aim to improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and enhance overall function. Our physiotherapists uses their hands to manipulate, mobilize, and massage soft tissues and joints of the body. Common manual therapy techniques include joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy.

Exercise therapy involves a combination of stretching, strengthening, and cardiovascular exercises that are tailored to an individual’s specific needs and goals. The goal of exercise therapy is to improve strength, flexibility, endurance, and overall function. Our Physiotherapists design an exercise program that is specific to the individual’s needs and goals and will work with them to ensure proper form and technique to prevent further injury. Exercise therapy can be particularly effective in treating conditions such as osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, and knee injuries.

In many cases, manual therapy and exercise therapy are used together to provide a comprehensive treatment approach. For example, our physiotherapists may use manual therapy techniques to improve joint mobility, followed by exercise therapy to strengthen the muscles surrounding the joint to provide stability and prevent further injury. These two therapies can help individuals recover from their condition, reduce pain, and enhance overall function. Physiotherapists may also use other modalities such as ultrasound, electrotherapy, and acupuncture to complement manual therapy and exercise therapy and provide a holistic approach to treatment. Overall, manual therapy and exercise therapy are essential components of physiotherapy that can help individuals recover from a variety of conditions and injuries.

How can therapy help me feel better?

Physical activity is the hardest habit to form, particularly if you have chronic pain. Some patients take anti-inflammatory or pain-relieving drugs to manage their symptoms, while others, tragically, give up on the concept of being active altogether.

If the idea of getting out and exercising while suffering from aches and pains makes you nervous, you are not alone. There is, however, an easier way to live the active lifestyle you choose.

With the help of our physiotherapist, you can regain your pain-free, active lifestyle and return to your favorite activities. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes effort, but it becomes much easier once you get into a routine.

What are the benefits of physiotherapy?

Remember how good it felt to be pain-free? Remember when you could go wherever you wanted at any time? Physiotherapy can turn back the clock and restore “the good old days”!

You might be unsure what to expect from physiotherapy. Perhaps you’re dealing with the fallout from an accident. Maybe you’re recovering from surgery and having difficulty regaining range of motion. Perhaps your knees aren’t as strong as they once were, and you’d like some help getting back to your evening walks.

Whatever the case may be, we are committed to relieve your pain and restoring your physical health at our Langley physiotherapy clinic.

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to your health. This is because no single plan of care is effective for everyone. In close collaboration with you, our physiotherapist will assess your mobility, balance, range of motion, and pain intensity.

Once your physiotherapist understands your needs, they will begin developing a personalized plan of care to assist you in relieving pain and achieving your goals!

Role of Physiotherapy for MSK (musculo-skeleton) conditions

MSK conditions encompass a broad range of disorders that affect the bones, joints and connective tissue, and includes arthritis (and related conditions) and trauma. Physiotherapists assess and treat patients with MSK conditions in order to reduce and eliminate pain and address muscle weakness, loss of stability and limited functional abilities.

One in ten Canadians with an MSK condition consults with a physiotherapist. Patients with MSK conditions account for the majority of outpatient physiotherapy consultations, with care delivered in private clinics, through on-site physiotherapy programs in the workplace and in the home.

Physiotherapy is an effective tool in injury prevention and recovery in programs that focus on self-management and independence.
