How can physical therapy help me?
On a physical level, the advantages of physical therapy are endless. Promoting lymphatic drainage, eliminating harmful toxins to releasing connective tissue tension will simply leave you feeling better to continue your activities of daily living. Physical therapy not only provides pain and stress relief but may also boost emotional health.
Techniques range from gentle releases of the soft tissues, i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia, stretching of joints to retain normal ranges of motion and in some cases deeper soft tissue work to reduce stubborn adhesions and inflammation in the muscles and fascia.
Physical therapy can include a vast range of techniques, including:
- Swedish Massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Deep tissue massage
- Myofascial release and myofascial pain relief
- Postural correction
- Sports massage
- Muscle energy techniques
- Stretching and strengthening techniques
- Injury Rehabilitation
Is physical therapy the same as physiotherapy?
The distinction must be made between physical therapy and physiotherapy. In most countries they have the same meaning. In Ireland they are two very different modalities, the very same way as an osteopaths treatment is different to a chiropractors treatment. At Harbour clinic all physical therapy treatments are completely hands-on orientated. The physical therapists ability to carefully palpate the soft tissue, assess posture and perform a range of muscle and joint testing are the foundations for the treatment plan. All appointments include a wide range of highly skilled, hands-on techniques to help solve the client’s condition or injury.
