What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is an allied medical field that focuses on the restoration, sustenance, and enhancement of mobility and functionality of the musculoskeletal system, i.e., muscles, nerves, joints, and connective tissues.As described in the introduction, this loss of mobility/functionality has several causal factors, i.e., Physical Injury, Chronic/Intermittent Medical conditions, and Genetic/Congenital defects.
Physiotherapy dates back to 460BC when two Greek physicians, Hippocrates and Galen, incorporated massage and hydrotherapy in the treatment of back and joint pain.However, mass acceptance of physiotherapy as a viable treatment option for musculoskeletal conditions only began in the late 1800s.During this period, orthopedic surgeons started using physical education and therapeutic exercises to treat disability in children due to polio.By the 1950s, professional physiotherapy had transitioned from hospital-based care to private outpatient clinics, educational institutions, and physical rehabilitation centers.
Activa Clinics is one such provider of professional physiotherapy services and operates ultramodern rehabilitation centers in several cities in Canada, including Brampton, Scarborough, Hamilton, Toronto, and Mississauga.
What Is the Procedure of Physiotherapy?
As a specialized medical field, physiotherapy occurs in multiple stages, which are: –
- Physical Examination
During your physical examination at Activa’s Brampton clinic, an experienced CARP-certified Activa physiotherapist methodically examines the affected joints/limbs to determine the extent of your functionality/mobility limitation.
Your Activa therapist can also schedule Activa’s in-house X-rays, MRI, or CT-scans, all on-facility, to optimize his/her assessment of damage to your muscles, nerves, tendons, bones and connective tissue.
- Diagnosis and Prognosis
After conducting the physical exam, your Activa Clinics physiotherapist then uses the findings obtained to come up with the most likely causes of your physical impairment.He/she then develops a prognosis for your condition, i.e., how your mobility/functionality impairment can be improved through physiotherapy.This prognosis becomes the basis of your customized physiotherapy program at Activa Clinics’ Brampton rehabilitation center.This personalized physiotherapy program at Activa Clinics is a comprehensive schedule that features all your physiotherapy, physical education, and environmental adjustment sessions.
- Rehabilitative Physiotherapy
You begin your physiotherapy at Activa Clinics with an Activa Physical Therapist(PT), who administers hands-on/manual therapy alongside physical education on the role of each procedure.At an advanced stage, you switch over to an Activa Clinics Occupational Therapist(OT), who guides you in how to successfully incorporate your physical education into everyday tasks.This interchange between PTs and OTs ensures you receive effective and comprehensive physiotherapy service at Activa Clinics, Brampton rehabilitation center.
Physiotherapy has two desirable attributes when compared to other medical approaches used in treating musculoskeletal conditions.
Your physiotherapy at our Brampton rehabilitation center features drug-free therapeutic techniques that cater to multiple needs in a condition such as Tendonitis, i.e., pain management, dexterity enhancement, joint mobility/functionality, and soft tissue manipulation.
Consequently, you end up relying less on expensive prescription medication by opting for Activa’s physiotherapy program.
While acupuncture is only slightly invasive, all your other physiotherapy sessions at Activa Clinics do not require breaching the skin or oral consumption to have a positive impact on your condition.
- Patient-Specific Care
Activa Clinics’ CARP-certified physiotherapists create customized therapy programs that cater to your specific mobility/functionality requirements, e.i., Activa OT therapy programs combine mental reinforcement, physical rehabilitation, and environmental habilitation.

Activa Clinics Brampton Physiotherapy FAQs
What Is the Difference Between Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy?
Occupational physiotherapy strives to help you perform everyday tasks competently despite your limited mobility/functionality due to a chronic illness, congenital disorder, or physical injury.To achieve his/her objectives, your Activa Clinics CAPR-certified occupational therapist incorporates Mental Reinforcement, Physical Rehabilitation, and Environmental Habilitation strategies into your custom physiotherapy program.Physical therapy, on the other hand, is focused on attaining effective resolution/alleviation of the underlying biomechanical issues that cause your limited mobility/functionality.
Can a physiotherapist give injections?
Yes. Your physiotherapist can decide to give you a cortisone injection to relax your muscle if pain due to your condition is particularly intense. Doing so allows him/her to carry out hands-on physiotherapy without subjecting you to unnecessary pain.
Can a physiotherapist give prescriptions?
Yes. Your physiotherapist can prescribe you with pain-relieving medication to help you better manage severe pain if your condition unexpectedly gets worse due to an unforeseen external factor, such as an accidental fall.You should, however, note that your OT/PT can only issue you with medication intended for the management of musculoskeletal conditions, i.e., pain relievers and muscle relaxers.
