Physiotherapy provides rehabilitation to individuals to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and function, where movement and function are compromised by aging, injury or postural imbalances. Physiotherapists are trained to assess, diagnose and treat a wide variety of musculo-sketetal problems associated with the body. At Phases, we combine traditional physiotherapy with functional and corrective exercises, geared to prevent and manage musculoskeletal pain and injury, while improving performance and strength. Our physiotherapists take an active role in patient care. It is always a guided "one on one" approach. We do not leave you unattended while you are doing your exercises, or hook you up to machines and walk away. Working together with our clients is crucial to monitoring progress and prevent further injury. Functional and Corrective Exercises are essential for rehabilitation. People who suffer from dysfunction and pain have difficulty performing exercises properly. They require guidance, understanding and coaching by a professional to rehabilitate and educate to reduce further injury. Posture and muscle balance are the key to core stabilization, lower back and mid-thoracic strengthening. Over time, people develop bad postural habits. These habits put strain on our body, leading to muscular imbalances and compensation. Short-term, it lets the body function, but long-term you become more susceptible to injury and pain. These problems do not disappear over night; therefore the road to recovery requires patience, persistence and hard work. Under the guidance of your physiotherapist, exercises are given as part of your Physiotherapy rehabilitation by our Personal Trainers to further facilitate functional movement patterns, which are geared to break the cycle and eliminate chronic pain and injury.
