Physiotherapy is a recognized health profession that can help athletes, injured workers (CNESST), road accident victims (SAAQ), people with back pain, sprains, tendinitis, fractures, chronic pain, and more. Young children as well as adults or the elderly can benefit from physiotherapy treatments. In addition to treating problems in the muscles, joints and bones, physiotherapy can also be used in cases of neurological diseases, circulatory or respiratory.
A physiotherapy treament program begins with an evaluation consisting of questions, tests and maneuvers giving information on the mobility of the joints, the strength and endurance of the muscles, the functional abilities, muscular tone and reflexes, posture, gait and sensitivity. This data helps to analyze the nature of the problem and its cause, to determine treatment goals, and then to establish a treatment plan that is appropriate to the needs and desires of the client.
During the first meeting with his client, the physiotherapist will proceed to assess the condition but also give advice and / or provide initial interventions that will help the client feel better. Note that it is not necessary to be referred by a doctor to consult in physiotherapy. Most insurance companies offer coverage for physiotherapy treatments, if they are not already reimbursed by the CNESST (accident at work) or the SAAQ (road accident).
