Patients come to National Spine Care for Physiotherapy not only because it is convenient to the Calgary Beltline area, but because of the professional and attentive care that they receive in the facility.
As primary healthcare professionals, National Spine Care’s Physiotherapy team combines 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.
The goal of the Physiotherapist is to restore, maintain and maximize your strength, function, movement and overall well-being, with your independence in mind. For professional Physiotherapy treatment, there is no better clinic in the Calgary Beltline area.
Patients often ask the staff at National Spine Care what Physiotherapy can do for them and what is’s all about. Physiotherapists prescribe personalized therapeutic exercises and provide essential education about the body, what keeps it from moving well, how to restore mobility and independence, and how to avoid or prevent bodily harm. The hands-on care Physiotherapists provide varies from person to person with a focus on the individual needs and personal health and lifestyle goals of the client. This makes your treatment very personal.
Often patients will ask what a typical treatment session will entail. Your physiotherapist assessment may include measures of body functions, strength and weakness testing, and observed or instrumented analysis of gait, posture, balance, joint range of motion, and functional movement. Based on your assessment, your individual treatment plan will be unique to you. No two Physiotherapy treatments in the Calgary Beltline office are the same.
Your Physiotherapist’s therapeutic treatment plan will involve education, exercise, and manual therapy components. Depending on your condition, this may include mobilization, manual therapy, work hardening, techniques and modalities to reduce pain, acupuncture, corrective techniques to improve heart and lung function and cardiac conditioning, demonstration of therapeutic exercise, and education about your condition, treatment plan and prognosis for getting better.
Physiotherapy treatments in the Calgary Beltline office may include one or all of the following:
– Exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles.
– Joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness and increase range of movement.
– Muscle re-education to improve control.
– Hot and cold packs, and electro-therapy to relieve pain, reduce swelling and speed up healing process.
– Clearance techniques and breathing exercises.
– Assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs.
By combining the principles of evidence-informed practice, evaluative skills, clinical and professional judgment, your physiotherapist will work closely with you, and often with other health care professionals, to ensure that your health goals are met.
