If a healthy spine is your foundation, your muscles are what hold it up.
We go through life needing to move – it keeps our blood flowing, joints lubricated, and nerves healthy. When an injury or pain occurs, movement is impaired. Our body and life gets affected.
Physiotherapists are trained to analyse your movement patterns and determine muscle imbalances that may be contributing to your problems. They help you activate and strengthen muscles for long-term prevention of injuries!
Our physiotherapists treat using:
Several misconceptions about Physiotherapy that we like to address early on:
1) “Physiotherapy is just massage/using electrotherapy.”
Massage and electrotherapy may make you feel good temporarily and has its place, but is no replacement for active movement, and here at Spinefit our aim is always to get you back to independence.
2) “Physiotherapy is just a bunch of stretches I can YouTube on my own.”
Physiotherapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Each patient has their own unique situation and your physiotherapist should create a unique plan that includes specific activities, exercises, and techniques to help you heal.
3) “Physiotherapists will only treat the injured area.”
The human body is made out of different parts that work together. You’d be surprised to find that the cause of your neck pain may in fact be coming from your shoulder or midback! That’s why we work closely with our chiropractors to make sure you get the most holistic approach.
