What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a profession in physical medicine, which applies a hands-on, drug-free treatment of injuries, ailments, physical issues/deformity.

It encompasses various treatment modalities such as massages, exercises, electrotherapy, patient education, stretching, and more. Physiotherapy can help you feel your best at every stage in your life; a physiotherapist treat a wide range of injuries, such as car accidents, athletic injuries, workplace injuries, diseases, or deformities. Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury and disability.

Some techniques that may be utilized during your physiotherapy sessions are soft tissue therapy, myofascial release, cupping therapy and scraping therapy. In conjunction to these techniques, corrective exercises will also be prescribed to further promote injury prevention and longevity.

Benefits of Physiotherapy

As a chiropractor that also struggles with chronic pain myself, James is the best strengthening coach I've found to help with my ongoing pain problems. His solid knowledge about structural stability and mobility has opened my eyes about the role that rehab plays in therapy and in fitness. James is also super creative with exercise prescription, his instruction are easy to follow and results are immediate. Learning from him has made me healthier in my body and even made me a better chiropractor in my own practice. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for easy to follow solutions to your rehab needs in a relaxed clinic environment

My experience over the last few months with Lu Strength & Therapy have been truly phenomenal. Lu is extremely personable and an infinite source of knowledge. The attention to detail that comes with the treatment with the added transparency creates such great experience keeping me excited to come back! The take home strength and mobility workouts Lu uniquely curates for you are very enjoyable and highly effective. After years of jumping between various practitioners and my shoulder problems only exponentially worsening, within 2 appointments I felt confident that Lu’s approach would get me to where I needed to be and few months later, I was correct. To add, the appointment pricing to time spent with Lu has been better than anywhere else I’ve been. I genuinely couldn’t recommend a facility more!
