What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a medical, practical approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physiotherapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with doctors. Our physiotherapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain and work to eliminate it. Although each patient's condition and pain are unique, your physiotherapist will use a variety of gentle practical techniques, exercises and equipment to quickly alleviate the pain and restore your function to optimal levels. The overall goal is to restore mobility and pain-free function and to prevent recurrence of injury or pain.
How do I know if physical therapy will help me?
Working with you and your doctor, we can discuss your options and help you determine if physical therapy will be the right choice for you. Contact us today to discuss your current situation and even arrange a free consultation if you wish.
What types of physiotherapy treatments do you perform?
Physical therapy is based on the findings of the initial evaluation. We perform different types of physiotherapy treatments, and we will adjust the physical therapy program specific to your specific injury. We are big proponents of manual therapy, which is defined as a clinical approach that uses skilled, specific practical techniques that a physiotherapist uses to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pain and symptoms. The techniques and modalities of manual therapy that we use include trigger point therapy, muscle energy, soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, proprioception, electrical stimulation and therapeutic exercises. Physical treatments are done in private rooms as well as in the gym on the basis of injuries.
Can I go to any physical therapy I choose?
As a patient, you have the right to physical therapy in any place you choose. In practical physical therapy, you will receive the highest quality care while achieving the results you need. We pride ourselves on providing a positive, encouraging environment with well-trained, friendly staff. We are confident in our ability to help you achieve your goals and live a pain-free life.
Do I always see the same physiotherapist?
After the initial evaluation, you will be assigned to a physiotherapist who will be responsible for implementing your physical therapy plan. Our goal is to build a strong relationship with you and work together to help you improve your health toward independence. You will always see the same physiotherapist you start with, except in special circumstances such as schedule difficulties or special diagnoses.

Will it hurt?
Physical therapy does not aim to injure, but to alleviate pain. However, as you regain your mobility, pain levels can sometimes vary. You may experience temporary pain from using muscles that are weakened or recovering. This is a normal response to therapeutic treatment. Good communication with your therapist will help you reduce any discomfort. We want you on the path to quick pain relief and a return to normal activities.

What to wear?
Train comfortably with clothing that allows easy access to the therapist to examine your problem areas. For treatments, loose clothing that is comfortable for gentle exercises and supportive sneakers are often a good choice to wear.
How long will my therapy last per day?
Practically, the first session lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes. Each session after that can last from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the package of physical therapy. The amount of time will be based on your specific needs, and your therapist will discuss this with you.
How many sessions will I have?
We have found that patients receive optimal benefits when they come three times a week for most diagnoses, but this will vary depending on your condition, where more or less frequent visits will be most effective. After your assessment, your physiotherapist will discuss the appropriate frequency with you based on your diagnosis and treatment plan.
What types of education / training do your therapists have?
Physiotherapists have many years of training at the level of basic and specialist studies in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology (study of joint movement), neurology and many other medical sciences. Our physiotherapists have completed accredited physical therapy programs and have a state license. In addition, they have various postgraduate knowledge and skills from certain specialized techniques. Rest assured, your physiotherapist is well trained to assess and treat your condition.
Do you offer programs for me when I get better?
Yes, when you finish your therapy sessions, your therapist will review your home exercise program. We advise you to continue with the program of training and medical fitness in our gym after the completion of the program of physical and rehabilitation therapy, in order to further progress and return to the normal rhythm and activities of your life.
