How to use physiotherapy treatments to help you stay active as you age.

There is an old saying that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

Plato said:

Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.

~Plato

Whether it is preventative or remedial, physical therapy treatment is an excellent whole body approach to maintaining a healthy active lifestyle and correcting or preventing the injuries and ailments.
Physiotherapy treatment can include manual therapy practice, acupuncture, therapeutic exercises, therapeutic electrical treatment methods like Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or ultrasound, and work hardening.
The right physiotherapy program will help to reduce or eliminate the aches that can come with physical activity as you age. By monitoring your progress and recommending the correct forms of exercise, your physiotherapist can be your partner to staying active as you age.
Talk to your physiotherapist about how you can use physiotherapy treatments as an integral part of your physical activity routine.
