What is Physiotherapy?

Modern day physiotherapy dates back to the early 1900’s as the response for treatment of the polio epidemic. In those days, physiotherapy treatment consisted of physical education, massage and remedial exercise.

We are now a regulated health profession and only those credentialed as “Physiotherapist”, “Physical Therapist”, or “PT” can perform physiotherapy services. Each and every physiotherapist who works at Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture are registered, licensed, and qualified to provide physiotherapy here in Alberta.

Today, Physiotherapists have expanded their scope of practice to a vast area of conditions. Many of us have had experience in several of these areas such as cardiorespiratory, pediatrics, neurology, geriatrics, orthopedics, and pelvic health to name a few. Years of high level university education combined with advanced knowledge courses, physiotherapists are considered the experts of what keeps (and prevents) a body from moving.

We use hands-on manual skills, customized therapeutic exercises (strength, flexibility, and motor pattern), and education to help patients understand what is causing their condition

Physiotherapy Treatments We Employ

We Utilize Several Different Therapies

Treatments are individualized for each patient, as injuries and medical histories vary. We do not apply a “one-size fits all” approach to rehabilitation.

Your age, physical ability, mobility, range of motion, and injury all play a major factor in the appropraite treatment action. Your physiotherapist will create a customized rehabilitation program based on the above and our findings during our diagnostic process.

Treatments Include:

  • Supportive tape and kinesiotaping
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Interferential current
  • TENS and muscle stimulation current
  • Biofeedback
Managing Pain Using Physiotherapy

Managing Pain & Mobility With Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a vital link to recovery after injury such as whiplash, back pain, pregnancy related muscle and joint issues, and vertigo. We are also a key player in the team many patients have to manage persistent conditions like arthritis and chronic pain.

Those who have tried temporary treatments, such as over the counter or prescription drugs, or are trying to avoid or recover from surgery, will benefit from the individual treatment plans that our physiotherapists develop especially for them.

Most importantly, physiotherapy involves you – the patient. We ensure that you are engaged in the treatment and have a voice in how to navigate your road to recovery.
