Born to Move: Capilano Physiotherapy

Christy Pederson, BScPT

We were all born to move.  To crawl, to walk, to run and even to dance.  May is National Physiotherapy Month and Capilano is excited to be able to celebrate the physical therapy profession, bring attention to the great work done by physiotherapists across Canada and highlight the physiotherapy services provided by Capilano’s physiotherapy team.

The 2016 “Born to Move” national campaign highlights many areas in which physiotherapy works.  Here are a few:

  • Physiotherapy Works For Chronic Pain: Physiotherapists help chronic pain sufferers reduce pain, maximize activity and to help them better manage their pain. Treatments can include therapeutic exercise, laser therapy, Radial Shockwave and intramuscular stimulation.
  • Physiotherapy Works For Whiplash Injuries: Physiotherapists help car accident patients get rid of pain, regain flexibility, remain active, and to resume their work abilities and recreational activities.  Physiotherapy treatments can include manual therapy, acupuncture, vestibular rehabilitation, and interferential stimulation.

Laurie Alston, the dancer and choreographer from the Born to Move video, has shared her physiotherapy story. A professional dancer and teacher, Laurie was in a car accident that put her in severe pain and that made dancing difficult. Through physiotherapy, Laurie, a mother of three, was able to get moving and keep moving.
