Physiotherapy FAQ's


Your San Antonio Chiropractor Answers Physiotherapy FAQs

Physiotherapy is a powerfully effective type of physical therapy that restores function, movement, and strength to people recovering from a serious illness or injury. Your San Antonio physiotherapist will initially evaluate your condition, develop a comprehensive physiotherapy program involving specific exercises, lifestyle changes and chiropractic techniques to help manage pain holistically, improve immune system responses to infection and regain the highest quality of life possible.

What Kind of Pain Can Be Treated with Physiotherapy?

As a multi-dimensional modality designed to rehabilitate musculoskeletal and circulatory systems, physiotherapy is useful for treating pain associated with:

  • Sports injuries (rotator cuff tears, ACL damage, dislocated shoulder)
  • Automobile injuries (whiplash, upper cervical injuries, lumbar pain, limb fractures)
  • Joint disorders and diseases (arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis)
  • Back disorders (degenerative disc, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis, traumatic spine injury)
  • Chronic respiratory issues (cystic fibrosis, asthma, pneumonia, lung cancer, COPD)

The best way to find out if physiotherapy and physical therapy can help your particular health problem or facilitate your recovery from injury or illness is to schedule a consultation appointment today with your San Antonio chiropractor.
