PhysioFit’s strength is in their assessment and treatment delivery. Traditional therapy taught in mainstream physiotherapy school has focused on the treating the symptoms of a person’s injury. By performing a test to the area of injury and determining if the injury is positive or negative tells you the diagnosis. Diagnosing an injury has been at the forefront of the medical/healthcare practice. What PhysioFit does is take it to the next level and asks the question “why is that area painful”? This is a much more demanding approach as it warrants the therapist has a keen awareness of human biomechanics and an in depth knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. For example, If the pain is in the shoulder the assumption is that the problem is in the shoulder. While we can all agree that the pain is in the shoulder, it isn’t necessarily the problem.
PhysioFit uses a biomechanical approach to assessment and treatment. Finding what parts of the body aren’t functioning properly and why is essential in delivering the right treatment plan. Focusing on the painful symptoms is a temporary measure only and provides a disservice for the client. Treatment of symptoms in some cases is necessary, but until the driver of the pain is identified and treated, the pain ultimately stay away.
PhysioFit therapists are committed to their profession, and to always be at the top of their game by exceeding the maximum continuing education units required by the College of Physiotherapists. Continuing education courses rooted in manual therapy, strength and conditioning and athletic training. This is to ensure a comprehensive and current treatment of all their clients.
