How does a physiotherapist work?


Physiotherapists concentrate on maximizing your mobility to improve your quality of life, no matter why you initially need to see them.

Your Coquitlam physiotherapist may also take factors like your job and social situation into account when they formulate a treatment plan. Crucially, as well as solving the symptoms of problems, physiotherapists also seek out the causes of problems. They’re active in seeking out and then correcting the root cause, whether that’s occupational (such as in the case of a repetitive strain injury or biomechanical (like poor posture, for instance).


When do I need to see a physiotherapist in Port Moody or Coquitlam?


Many people believe physiotherapists treat only a rather narrow band of conditions, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. You may need to see a local physiotherapist if you suffer from musculoskeletal pain or a lack of mobility (stiffness) if you have inflammation, experience headaches, or get an injury to one of your muscles, ligaments, or joints.


Physiotherapists also see patients with other soft tissue injuries, sports injuries, repetitive strains like golfer’s elbow or runner’s knee, and after ankle sprains. You might also see a physio if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, poor posture, which causes other issues, or after a stroke to restore movement.


The list is almost endless, but here’s a selection of reasons you may visit a physiotherapist in Coquitlam:


For neck and back pain: One of the most common forms of muscular pain out there is back or neck pain. It affects millions of us, and physiotherapists can help reduce tension and increase mobility while promoting blood flow and ultimately easing painful symptoms.


  • Bursitis and Arthritis

  • Back problems like Sciatica

  • Degenerative disc disease of herniated discs

  • Pinched nerves

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Stress fractures or osteoporosis

  • Scoliosis, including in children

  • Spinal Pain

  • Spinal Adjustments


For sports Injuries: Sports injuries often occur when an athlete puts too much demand on a specific bodily area in the pursuit of performance. Physios are experts at assessment, examining an athlete’s techniques, movements, gait, strengths and weaknesses to identify solutions and prevent recurrences:


  • Sports Hernias

  • Hamstring Injury

  • Joint Dislocations and Subluxations

  • Balance Problems and Retraining

For rehab after surgery: The period after any surgery is crucial, and physiotherapists help to promote faster, optimal recovery in a broad range of patients. They help with natural pain relief and use methods that promote blood flow – which significantly increases healing rates. Not only that, but depending on your specific condition, a Port Moody physio can assist with getting you up and walking faster, or regaining strength in an affected limb, for instance.


  • Total Knee Replacements

  • Hip Replacement

  • Pre and Post Partum Related Conditions
