We treat a variety of ailments at First Choice PT. However, most can be broken down to four major areas of focus: neuro-musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, and respiratory issues. Our skilled therapists at First Choice PT provide rehabilitation for your limbs, lungs, brain, and heart.
This is the type of ailment most associated with physiotherapy. When you experience back pain, sports injuries, injuries from a vehicular accident, or arthritis, the neuro-musculoskeletal system is affected. Pediatric and geriatric physiotherapy can fall heavily into this category due to physical birth defects and fall-related injuries.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. To keep your heart happy, the rest of your body has to be working well, and physiotherapy is an integral part of prevention and recovery when it comes to your cardiovascular system.
Physiotherapy treatment can assist individuals who not only have a physical impairment, but neurological impairments as well. This includes traumatic brain injury or stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease. At physical rehabilitation centers, therapists can maximize or even enhance the functional ability of a client suffering from one of these impairments.
While physiotherapy is normally performed on a hands-on physical level, when working with the respiratory system with issues such as asthma or cystic fibrosis, the process is a little different. Therapists with a background in respiratory physiology also help you with your breathing. This involves coaching to reduce breathlessness, improve the efficiency of ventilation, reduce pain, and educate clients on the best way to carry out daily tasks and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
