Physiotherapy is a discipline involved in health prevention and health promotion, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of impairments and disabilities affecting neurological, musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary systems.
In other words, physical therapy treats disabilities resulting from injuries and diseases affecting the muscles, joints and bones, and neurologic systems (brain, nerves, spinal cord),respiratory (lung), circulatory (blood vessels),and cardiac (heart).
The role of physiotherapy is to help recover the maximum physical abilities according to its own potential for recovery. To do so, the physiotherapist use a variety of treatment modalities, such as manual techniques, exercises, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy and thermotherapy (ice and heat).
These interventions, focusing on self-responsibility of the customer, can acquire the physical capacity for social integration, the activities the daily living and the fulfillment off a job, a hobby or a sport.
Physiotherapists can be viewed without a doctor prescription., This direct access is intended to relieve the health system. The physiotherapist is able, after an initial assessment, to treat, counsel and/or redirect the client to a doctor if the condition requires.
At PHYSIOTHÉRAPIE RAWDON :
We focus on continuous training of our staff and encourage the pooling of resources to encourage the return to the function of our customers, that is to say, that if a customer requires, for example, one approach in massage therapy, we will not hesitate to move towards the approach. Same for osteopathy, muscle control, vestibular rehabilitation or global postural re-education.
In our practice, we use osteopathy as a tool in the same way that another treatment modality. Our professional background is quite diverse, our different formations being many, we do not limit ourselves to a single treatment modality when we meet our customers. Our "toolbox" if full. We combine several techniques learned over the years to maximise our impact on the customer's requirement.
