Muscles, bones, and joints integrate to form the musculoskeletal system. At the core of this system is the spine, a graceful structure forming four gentle curves along the center of the back.
The spine is the central link of a kinetic chain that starts with the head and ends with the feet. All of the body’s energy is somehow tied in to this central link, whether through nervous connections to the brain or physical connections of tendon. The body and mind connect through the spine. And anything that goes wrong with this central system immediately affects the body.
Like any system, this core needs maintenance, and sometimes repairs, by people who know how the system works.
Those people are physiotherapists, and you will find the best experts in their field at Pickering Physiotherapy Institute.
Physiotherapists specialize in knowing musculoskeletal care, and they understand that each individual’s system is unique. Through an in depth process of you getting to know your physiotherapist, and your physiotherapist getting to know you, you’ll be putting yourself on a path to better, healthier living with physiotherapy.
Because the relationship is so well developed, you’ll find that physiotherapy is uniquely suited to address issues of:
- Neck pain relief
- Back pain relief
- Low back pain
- Sports injury
- Sports medicine
- Whiplash injury
- Chronic low back pain
If you’ve ever suffered with these conditions or simply suffer from recurring and nagging pain, physiotherapy can help you. With hands-on manual therapy and education about posture, body mechanics, weight control and nutrition, physiotherapy will trigger your body to heal itself, naturally, and without the exclusive dependence on drugs.
But physiotherapy isn’t just about restorative care. It’s about how to get you as active and healthy in your life as possible.
With physiotherapy, you will find that many of the common ailments of modern society like type-II diabetes, obesity, and stress can be treated with great efficacy. That’s because physiotherapy is a whole body and mind approach to life, and living. What you get in the office is effective, but what you take home is the gold.
This is a direct link between stress and chronic disease. Physical symptoms of stress can be linked to back and neck pain, obesity, and anxiety. By working with a physiotherapist as part of a multi-disciplinary team of health practitioners including dietitians, naturopathic physicians, massage therapists and psychologists, you’ll have access to techniques that will reduce the affects of stress on your life. You’ll uncover methods of deep tissue massage, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine and other techniques which will greatly enhance your life.
