How do you know if you need the services of a physiotherapist?
Athletes generally seek the services of a Physiotherapist in the event of a sports-related injury to facilitate the healing and recovery process from muscular or skeletal damage. In some surgical cases, doctors often recommend the services of a physiotherapist. Following a surgical procedure, in order for the patient to fully recover and regain independent and unaided freedom of movement, the services of a physiotherapist can be greatly beneficial.
You may have undergone surgery to recover from an injury following an accident or the surgical procedure may have been conducted with the aim of correcting a restrictive movement disorder. In both cases, whether following a restorative or a corrective surgery, physiotherapy can greatly influence the body’s ability to recover and regain or achieve optimal freedom of movement. In the event of a chronic (long-term) painful condition such as back pain or neck pain, the cause of which could be work-related or lifestyle influenced, consulting with a physiotherapist can help in identifying the cause and choosing an appropriate non-invasive, non-surgical and even drug-free therapy to overcome the pain.
A common but often ignored symptom of work-related stress is excessive fatigue, tiredness and lethargy leading to a sedentary lifestyle. This could also be a sign of depression and anxiety. Physiotherapy can also be used to provide relaxation and as a means of relieving stress and in many cases, can be a better and long-term alternative to drugs and medicines.
