Emkiro’s physiotherapists practice a drug-free approach to medicine. Physiotherapy can be beneficial for many who suffer from musculo-skeletal conditions of the back or neck, or joint pain such as hips, knees, ankles, wrists, elbows or shoulders.
Your Emkiro Physiotherapist will begin with an extensive assessment that may include health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, and other orthopedic tests.
Based on this assessment, your physiotherapist will work in partnership with you to develop an individualized treatment program and prognosis.
Expect your physiotherapist to guide you in performing therapeutic exercises. Your progress will be monitored at follow-up visits and your physiotherapist may adjust your treatment according to changes in your body.
Patients should bring comfortable clothing that allows the physiotherapist easy access to the area of concern.
Your Emkiro 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, demonstration of therapeutic exercise, and education about your condition, treatment plan and prognosis for getting better.
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 Emkiro health care professionals, to ensure that your health goals are met.
