WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?

Physiotherapy is the science of movement.  Physiotherapists have a range of therapeutic skills and tools which they use towards the goal of optimizing movement, rehabilitating chronic or acute injury, and increasing overall health and wellness.  Your physiotherapist will assess and diagnose your injury and screen for possible medical concerns, and will provide in session treatment to decrease pain and discomfort and increase function.  Together they will work with you to provide education, support, and a rehabilitation plan so that you can achieve your goals.

You do not need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist.

WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC LASER?

Therapeutic laser delivered to specific soft-tissue at the correct wavelength will enhance cellular metabolism, which is a direct cause for healing. This stimulation has positive physiological benefit for many patients suffering with soft-tissue injury or damage.

The effect of therapeutic laser is to target specific cells. Light is absorbed by specific chemicals in the cell called “chromophores”. This stimulates the cell to perform it’s natural functions at an accelerated rate.

Our bodies require oxygen to function. By increasing a cells metabolism with photostimulating laser, the oxygen uptake by the cell is increased. Many acute and chronic injuries can be treated and co-treated with laser. Muscle, nerve, tendon and joint injuries, both acute and chronic may respond to the addition of laser therapy to your treatment.
