Physiotherapy and Laser (Now Offering!)
At Nirvana Wellness, we understand the importance of physiotherapy when recovering from an injury or accident. Our goal is to design a treatment plan aimed at allowing you to recover quickly. Often times, Chiropractors and Physiotherapists work in collaboration.
Many times patients are unsure who to see first and when. The Health Director aka “The Gatekeeper” at Nirvana Wellness Centre- Brampton will guide you as to which practitioner will be the right fit for your health goals. A Medical Doctor may also refer you to physiotherapy after surgery such as a knee replacement, or an event such as a stroke or heart attack.
Did you know that patients who actively pursue physiotherapy after an inquiry have shorter recovery periods and are less likely to develop chronic pain.
What problems do Physiotherapists treat?
Treatment can be provided for conditions triggered by injury, disease or disability. Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Here are some examples:
Issues in the joints, bones, muscles and ligaments, such as arthritis, or osteoporosis
Post surgery and after surgery recovery e.g. shoulder replacements
Strains, sprains, and fractures, whether you had an accident in the workplace, at home, or from playing competitive sports
Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain or spine,
Diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and Parkinson’s disease
Disability as a result of heart problems
Pelvic issues, such as misalignments related to pregnancy and childbirth
Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of muscle strength, for example during cancer treatment, or palliative care
What should I expect if I visit a Physiotherapist?
Your sessions will be customized to meet your individual goals. At the initial appointment, the Physiotherapist will review your medical history, and decide the appropriate course of action. A full treatment plan will be discussed in detail, and rehabilitative exercises will be assigned to do in between sessions to aid you in a speedy recovery.
