Physiotherapy services are provided by highly-trained registered physiotherapists who have vast experience in treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries.
What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy assesses and treats musculoskeletal injury with the goal of restoring and maintaining as much physical ability as possible. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, physiotherapists are able to help reduce tightness in the muscles, improve joint movement, reduce pain, and improve function.
Halifax physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of your musculoskeletal injury in order to improve and maintain your functional level and physical abilities. Physiotherapists at Citadel Physiotherapy in Halifax are trained to provide an initial assessment and diagnosis and will develop a treatment plan specific to the client’s injury that is exercise-based and hands-on.
Physiotherapists at Citadel Physiotherapy utilize various treatment techniques while treating their clients. These include manual therapy, mobilization and manipulations, acupuncture, electrical modalities such as ultrasound, light therapy, Interferential Current Therapy, TENS, shockwave therapy. Exercise and injury-specific education are also utilized.
All physiotherapists use specifically tailored exercise to treat pain and stiffness. In addition to exercise, manipulative physiotherapists are highly trained at using their hands to diagnose and treat restrictions in movement in the spine, arms and legs. Using gentle, hands-on techniques, we can help reduce muscle tightness, improve movement in the joints, reduce pain and improve function.
