Don’t ignore the signs that tell you to go see a Physiotherapist!
Often people are not listening to their body when it is telling them something. When being injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident, something happened at work that caused a discomfort, you pulled something when exercising, or got injured any other way, we intent to ignore what we really feel and already feel recovered when most of the pain has disappeared. Often we believe the remaining pain will disappear on its own. However, it is important to be fully recovered to prevent things to turn back into a more severe pain. This may stop you from doing certain things later on.
Physiotherapy is a health care profession that focuses on the science of movement and can help you restore, maintain and improve your physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being. Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals that combine an in-depth understanding of the body with specialized hands-on therapy techniques to assess, diagnose and treat underlying physical issues, injuries or disorders to promote mobility and function.

- Pain that is always present, even if it is at a low level of intensity or may seem to getting better, but never disappears fully, chances are this will not heal by itself.
- Pain stays for more than three days after the inflammation stage of healing has passed and you are still experiencing pain, or severe pain more serious damage may have occurred.
- You have injured yourself and something feels different since then. This is a sign that something isn’t right.
