Physiotherapy Gilbert

Restore, Maintain, Maximize

Physiotherapy restores a body’s ability to maintain and maximize its strength, mobility and overall well-being. It treats muscle strength, mobility, joints, post-injury rehabilitation and therapy for disorders.

What Is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is practiced by medical professionals called physiotherapists. They are trained on:

  • The physiology of the body
  • How the body works
  • Assessments and diagnosing
  • Injury, disability and rehabilitation therapy

A physiotherapist will identify root causes and assess your wellbeing generally. They prescribe exercises and specific movements tailored to your specific needs, physical condition, general well-being, and current mobility.

What Physiotherapy Treatment Is Used In Gilbert?

Treatment includes deliberate movement, niche exercises, manual hands-on therapy,  hydrotherapy, dry needling, ultrasound or traction.

Deliberate Movement And Niche Exercises

These are exercises to do at home that will enhance movement ranges and achieve better balance, coordination, and physical well-being. They help reduce injuries or alleviate chronic conditions.

Manual Hands-On Therapy

Manual therapy can:

  • Improve tissue flexibility
  • Increase movement ranges 
  • Improve soft tissues and joint functionality
  • Relax spasms
  • Retrain muscle function
  • Alleviate pain
  • Reduce inflammation or immobility

Treatment can be:

  • Manipulation in different directions and speeds
  • Passive, focused manipulation

Hydrotherapy

This is an excellent treatment for:

  • Rheumatological conditions
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Neurological disorders

 

The exercise is in a shallow pool at a water temperature of up to 96 degrees Fahrenheit and assists with muscle functionality and joint pain reduction. The density of the water supports you, reduces load forces, and adds resistance

Dry Needling

 A hair-thin needle acupuncture needle targets myofascial points at different levels. This gives fast pain relief and muscle reactivation. It is effective in treating pain, muscle spasms, and post-stroke conditions.

Diabetics and pregnant patients should consult with their medical professionals before booking this treatment.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound treatment is thermal and non-thermal and is used to deep heat soft tissues and accelerate blood circulation to improve healing speed and quality and alleviate pain. It treats carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder damage, ligament damage, joint immobility, and other conditions.

Non-thermal treatments manipulate minuscule gas bubbles that exist around injuries. Patients with thromboembolic conditions, pacemakers, sensitive skin, or sensory conditions should consult their specific medical professional before booking this treatment.

Traction

Traction stretches the spine to alleviate the pressure between vertebral discs. It is well suited for disc-nerve interface pain, such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Discitis
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Pinched nerves

 

Traction does not suit general lower back pain and is also used as part of a mixture of treatments.
