What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a therapy designed to reduce pain and improve the function of various parts of the body. The staff at Better Chiropractic often recommends physiotherapy to patients who are injured or struggling with a disability. Physiotherapy may also be beneficial to patients with certain chronic conditions.
What Physiotherapy Methods Are Available from Better Chiropractic?
Better Chiropractic offers several physiotherapy techniques designed to restore optimum functioning to the body. Some of the techniques available from Better Chiropractic include heat therapy, cold therapy, ultrasound, electric stimulation, flexion, myofascial release, corrective exercise, and distraction.
Some of the other physiotherapy methods Better Chiropractor utilizes include:
- Graston Technique - The Graston Technique is an approach to physiotherapy that incorporates instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. This technique enables clinicians to effectively identify and treat scar tissue, along with other restrictions that prevent normal function. This technique offers many advantages for the patient, including a shorter treatment time, faster recovery, and less need for medication.
- Kinesio Taping - The Kinesio Taping Method prevents muscles from over-contracting by providing support in the form of taping. This enables the patient to participate in his or her normal physical activity without as much risk of pain and further injury.
- FAKTR- FAKTR stands for Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab. This technique incorporates treatment of the kinetic chain with instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization incorporated and various forms or rehabilitation. FAKTR combines treatment in the position of provocation and during motion.
- Foundation Training - Foundation Training is a movement practice designed to restore the body's natural order. It teaches the body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended.
