Physiotherapy is a form of patient-centered treatment that utilizes a range of techniques such as joint mobilization, advanced muscle release, exercises, massage therapy, inferential current therapy (such as a TENS device), and other therapeutic interventions to manage chronic and post-surgical and acute pain from an injury.
This form of manual therapy is also effective in injury prevention and improving overall mobility and function. The highly-skilled physiotherapist at our physiotherapy Barrie, Ontario clinic will also provide you with education, lifestyle changes, and other therapeutic interventions to practice at home to further help you manage your recovery.
