A few weeks ago a patient told me about this great article from NBC News titled 4 Things a Physical Therapist Can Do That Your Doctor Can’t. Even though it is an American article, it does apply to physiotherapy in Canada, and more specifically it also really reflects what you can expect at WIN Health Solutions.
I felt one of the highlights of this article was how it discussed not only utilizing physiotherapy after an injury for recovery, but how it can be beneficial to come in for a check up, to have a movement screen or postural assessment in order to prevent injuries and break you out of poor habitual postures.
This is especially true for those wanting to start a new exercise routine and those who are already athletic. In addition, if you have a physically demanding job, it's also a great idea to have regular physiotherapy check-ups to assist you. This can help you stay strong and provide you postural education to help you efficiently carry out your day-to-day job responsibilities.
There's great benefit to include physiotherapy as part of your healthcare team... you only get one body in your lifetime, why not keep it finely tuned on a regular basis?! Taking a preventative approach to your health can help you avoid an injury that can hold you back from your goals in life.
At WIN Health Solutions the physiotherapy team is always available to assist you, answer your questions and guide you for whatever physical challenges you have coming your way. Click here to view the NBC New article featuring Physiotherapy.
