Getting in an accident can be a traumatic experience, especially if you get hurt. When your injuries are serious, the road to recovery is often long and painful. Physiotherapy after the trauma often speeds up healing and returns strength and mobility.

This hands-on therapy is a non-invasive method that addresses problems in the discs, joints, nerves, tendons, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It uses different modalities and manual therapy to reduce inflammation and pain, and increase range of motion. The modalities used depend on the severity of your condition and your care plan.

They may include the following:

  • Electrical stimulation
  • Exercise
  • Manual therapy
  • Mechanical traction
  • Ultrasound
  • Vibration therapy
  • And others
At our practice, we complete a full assessment of your condition and create a treatment plan for your specific needs. Our goal is for every client to regain their health, move without pain, and return to living their lives.

Effects of Physiotherapy

The effects of physiotherapy are cumulative; the longer you work at it, the more benefits you will receive. Here are five primary benefits of physiotherapy:

  • Supports Healing—it works with and improves your body’s natural healing processes.
  • Reduces Pain—chronic pain may lead to sleep issues, depression, anxiety, and irritability. It can also be difficult to focus on daily tasks or concentrate at work.
  • Prevents Long-Term Damage—untreated injuries may lead to serious problems. Chronic headaches, migraines, and other painful conditions are common for those who do not get immediate medical attention.
  • Prevents Surgery—while surgery may be necessary for serious injuries, this therapy may be another option for musculoskeletal issues.
  • Restores Function—exercises and manual manipulation may help your body improve flexibility and strength, while reducing pain and increasing functionality.

Physiotherapy and Adjustments Work Together

When a client presents with inflammation, muscle tension, or swelling, Dr. Danon uses modalities to decrease problems in the area to be treated. This helps the body prepare for adjustment and aids the healing process.

Adjustments are the primary method of care; physiotherapy supplements the benefits. By relaxing the muscles and surrounding structures in the affected area, the adjustment can have a deeper, more lasting effect.

Range of motion and flexibility improves, joints have more stability, muscles become stronger, and posture improves significantly. You will feel better, and that is the goal.
