How does Physiotherapy work?
Our Physiotherapy team here in Mendota Heights helps take care of patients in all phases of healing, from initial diagnosis through the restorative and preventive stages of recovery. Physiotherapy may be a standalone option, or it may support other treatments.
Some patients are referred to our physical therapist by their doctor, but others seek therapy on their own. Whichever way a patient comes to see our physical therapy team, they can expect to:
- Undergo a physical exam and evaluation, including a health history and certain testing procedures, including evaluation of posture, movement and flexibility, and of muscle and joint motion and performance
- Receive a clinical diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care and short and long term goals
- Receive physical therapy treatment and intervention based on the therapist’s evaluation and diagnosis
- Receive self-management recommendations
Patients often train with our physical therapist in our Mendota Heights clinic working on exercises that they can do at home, to help them function more effectively.
What to Expect During Physiotherapy
Our Physiotherapists in Mendota Heights use many different techniques to help you decrease pain and stiffness, improve motion and strength, and improve mobility. Physical agents such as heat, ice, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation may be used. Manual techniques are often used to help improve mobility.
Therapeutic exercise is often used by physical therapists to help people gain range of motion, increase strength, and improve function. Patient education about a condition or illness is paramount to the practice of physical therapy, and therapists may use charts, models, and diagrams to help you understand your diagnosis and prognosis.
You may also be given modifications to make or exercises to do at home.
