What is a physiotherapist?
As primary health care professionals, physiotherapists combine in-depth knowledge of how the body works with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability. At Wallis for Wellness we have the benefit of working as a multidisciplinary team to provide you with an integrated, holistic plan of care.
What is involved?
With your independence in mind, the goal is to restore, maintain and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall well-being. This is accomplished with a thorough initial assessment. The assessment usually takes about 1 hour.
A personalized treatment plan is then drawn up may include any or all of the following: hands-on treatment, therapeutic modalities, personalized therapeutic exercises and education about the body, what keeps it from moving well, how to restore mobility and independence, and how to avoid or prevent further harm. Each follow up appointment is about 30-40 minutes in length and begins with a reassessment and review of your current program to determine the results to date. The program may then be modified to achieve greater results.
