Who is a physical therapist?

A physical therapist is a health professional with a Bachelor or Master's degree from an accredited University. Physical therapists go through rigorous training in a variety of health sciences, such as anatomy, physiology and pathology before they are taught the practical applications of physical therapy. Physical therapists are trained to evaluate the dysfunction of musculoskeletal, neurological and cardio-respiratory systems and to develop a personalized program to improve these conditions.

What conditions do physical therapists treat?

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative Disk Disease
  • Sciatica
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Motor Vehicle Injuries
  • Pregnancy induced pain
  • Hip / Knee / Foot pain
  • Shoulder / Elbow / Wrist pain
  • Neck and Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Lack of Energy

What treatment modalities may a physical therapist use?

  1. Manual therapy helps to restore joint mobility and compliance of connective tissue around the joints, thereby making movement easier and increasing the range;
  2. Soft tissue techniques are used to improve stiff muscles and increase circulation;
  3. Ultrasound optimizes nutrient exchange in the cells of the affected tissue and improves the rate of healing;
  4. Laser therapy emits photon energy, which improves the metabolism of the affected area and improves the function of the nerves supplying the affected tissue. Laser therapy is also used as an acupuncture modality: When it is applied on specific acupuncture points along the meridians, it improves the overall tissue vitality and promotes healing.
  5. Electrical Stimulation treatment is used to block out pain signals, and at times is applied to retrain weak muscles for better performance;
  6. Exercise is used to stretch and strengthen muscles around affected joints. Muscles provide stability and support so when they are strong and coordinated, the joints function with more ease. The need for exercise is determined by the treating professional. Exercise is not always indicated during the initial stages of injury/trauma. However, as the treatment progresses, exercise is frequently used to augment the effects of treatment.
