What is Local Physiotherapist

If you have a disease such as diabetes, you can benefit from working with a local physiotherapist in addition to your local endocrinologist and local family physician. A local physiotherapist uses techniques such as manual therapy, exercise and stretching and spinal adjustment to treat injury and dysfunction.

A local physiotherapist can help you manage blood glucose levels, lose weight, understand diabetes nutrition and prevent complications such as diabetic retinopathy. Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, exercise is very important to help you manage your condition, and a local physiotherapist can be a very beneficial member of your healthcare team. 

The assessment: Before you can begin, your physical therapist will do an evaluation. You may not think of this as a typical treatment, but it's an integral part of creating a physiotherapy plan to get to the root of the problem.

2. Manual therapy: This is a modality that physiotherapists use for many injuries. This hands-on approach refers to many things, including therapeutic massage and assisted stretching and exercise.

3. Ultrasound: Physiotherapists use ultrasound for connective tissue injuries. Ultrasound uses sound waves to generate heat deep in the body, loosening up tissues so they’re better prepared for exercise or manual therapy.
