Look for the Cause: You need to find the cause of the problem. Too often, care for injuries involves only looking at the symptoms. At Elevation Physiotherapy we will focus on finding the drivers behind your pain or limitation, and design therapy and exercise to treat the root source. It is very common to have groin pain that comes from your back, or wrist pain that comes from your neck. Each person's story is different-by treating the source of the problem we will help you improve, and give you long-term solutions to stay better. What to Expect at Elevation Physiotherapy: We need to make sure we actually hear what you are telling us in order to quickly get to the source of the problem. We listen to a complete history of your problem or issue, and then complete a comprehensive physical assessment. Treatment will begin in your first visit. We want to hear what goals you would like to accomplish so that we are certain to devise a plan to help you achieve them as quickly as possible. You will have homework: Evidence shows that people progress faster when they really understand their problem, and are given strategies to use frequently through their day. These strategies could be exercises to help remodel specific tissues, correction of your posture, discussion around supported sleeping positions, looking at how you walk-- the list goes on. We will reassess your condition with each visit, so that we can be responsive to the changes that are happening. This is all designed to get you back to where you want to be as quickly and efficiently as possible. Let's get better, now!
