Physiotherapy for Pain Relief

Clients seek Physiotherapy care for a number of reasons.  The most common reason is for pain relief.   Physiotherapy is the treatment of preference for many who suffer from pain whether in the back or neck, or joint pain such as hips, knees, ankles, wrists, elbows or shoulders.  Some have sustained a work or motor vehicle accident.   Pain is not ‘normal’, it is in fact your body telling you that something is wrong.  Given how much we know about the body today, ‘living with’ or ‘putting up with’ pain is not necessary.  In fact, the prolonged acceptance of pain increases the chances that your condition will become chronic and your body will lose its natural ability to fix the problem.  It is imperative that Physiotherapists go into great detail to assess the root cause of your pain.  After determining the cause of your pain the Physiotherapist must work diligently and effectively to offer you pain relief.  Each patient requires a unique solution to their problem, but typically the use manual hands-on techniques, pain relieving modalities such as ice, heat, electrical stimulation & acupuncture, progressive exercise to rebuild your lost function, and other techniques should be employed.   Gains in range of motion and strength must then be applied to functional activity in the final phase of treatment.  You and your Physiotherapist should work together towards a successful discharge once your painful condition has resolved and you have rebuilt what was lost.

Other common reasons clients attend for Physiotherapy treatment are:

  • Pre and post-surgery care
  • Recovering from illness and chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or respiratory conditions
  • Treatment of age related conditions such as arthritis or balance problems
  • Education and advice regarding health promotion, and disease or injury prevention
  • Before and after pregnancy

If one of these reasons is affecting you, I encourage you to book an appointment with an experienced Physiotherapist today.  Finding a highly skilled Physiotherapist can be difficult, so always try to get a referral from a trusted source, or do your own research to see what others have said about a Physiotherapist by checking out their testimonials and reviews.

    Physiotherapy is much more broader approach to paint treatment and health care. If you’re still suffering from chronic pain despite years of treatment then perhaps you need to try physiotherapy in treating your pain.

    Very nice article you have here. There are some pain that cannot be eliminated or treated by medications prescribed by physicians but it can be relieved or treated through physiotherapy. Of course, we must also make sure that we are dealing with licensed and experienced physiotherapist in order to make sure that everything goes well.
