Our Lafayette office can provide physiotherapy and rehabilitation to anyone suffering from disabilities involving nerves, joints, soft tissue, or other problems. Our team of providers offer cutting-edge treatments and expert physiotherapy rehabilitation to enhance your well-being.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation help people whose quality of life is compromised by physical impairments and disabilities. We at McCready Chiropractic help improve function in the daily life of our patients to allow for their greater independence. Instead of relying on drugs or surgery, physiotherapy seeks to promote, maintain, and restore health through physical manipulation, exercise and stretches, and rehabilitation techniques.
Our physiotherapy and rehabilitation specialists have broad medical expertise to evaluate, diagnose, and treat disabling conditions. We offer a holistic approach to physical injuries and disabilities, working to treat the whole person, not just the medical issue at hand.
You can expect some discussion and education on performing activities correctly, like lifting or moving properly or what you may be doing on a daily basis that is affecting or contributing to your problem.
During a physiotherapy session, your therapist may apply hands-on techniques, such as manual manipulation or massage, to help loosen stiff muscles or stretch soft tissues. You can also expect exercises to warm up muscles, stretch them, and strengthen them.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation offer many benefits and have a variety of goals. In general, it can relieve pain, reduce swelling, decrease muscle spasms, and improve circulation. The goal is to improve the current physical condition and better one’s quality of life.
You most likely will only go to therapy a few times a week, depending on the payment options or your insurance. Most stretching and strengthening exercises require a daily commitment to be effective. You won’t see results by relying solely on your therapy sessions. The responsibility for improvement falls squarely on your own shoulders.
Your therapist will provide you with specific exercises and stretches to perform at home to continue working on the issues and help you see improvement in your condition.
The process of physiotherapy takes time. The body can heal itself, but we must be persistent and patient. If you try to speed up the healing, it could result in a re-injury. If you stop completely, you won’t see results at all. Keep up with the program to experience improvement in your condition and better quality of life.
If you are experiencing decreased physical abilities or limited movement, then physiotherapy might be right for you. PT specialists can help figure out what’s causing the problem with mobility and design a treatment plan that is unique to you to help restore your ability to do what you love.
While you may feel some discomfort as you work through the process of healing, you should not feel pain. Keep an open line of communication with your therapist and speak up if any activity causes you pain.
The sooner you seek out help from a physiotherapist, the sooner you can get back to your normal, pain-free life. It’s important to take steps now to deal with the pain, because the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get healthy again.
We work with a wide variety of movement-related problems, but they’re not always associated with pain. So while you may be recovering from an injury or dealing with a pulled muscle, you don’t need to be in pain to see our physiotherapists. One of our goals is to prevent pain by treating our patients before it happens.
