Feel Good about Physio: 3 Benefits of Going to a Professional

By March 16, 2022Blog

With so many different outlets available at our disposal, it’s easy to feel like we have everything at our fingertips to become a self-certified health guru. But before you get carried away, hold on. It’s true when they say that it’s best to leave some things to the professionals.

We’ve all been there. You’re scrolling through Instagram or TikTok, and you see a video of someone demonstrating the next life-changing stretch or exercise hack to wellness. It looks simple enough, but before you know it, you’re worse off than you were before!

There’s a lot more to physiotherapy than some simple stretches. It involves multiple interventions for treating and preventing physical dysfunction, including manual therapy techniques, electrotherapeutic and mechanical agents, and active rehabilitation. 

Health care professionals receiving the designation of Registered Physiotherapists have completed a Master’s Degree from an accredited Canadian University with programs centred on evidence-informed solutions to soft tissue and joint problems. Additionally, all registrants have successfully passed the rigorous National Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE). 

With this in mind, unlike the on-screen influencers you may follow, staff at painPRO Clinics have the appropriate designation and proven ability to provide safe and effective care for your physical health. 

So, you can rest assured that you are literally in good, capable hands. 


Here are three benefits to visiting a painPRO physiotherapist:


Patient-centred care

painPRO physiotherapists are independent contractors, meaning their entire livelihood centres around ensuring patients and their treatment is the utmost priority. While certifications and education are crucial, so is the reassurance you receive by knowing your PT has got your back, shoulder, knee, or whatever you need help with. 


Personalized manual therapy 

When it comes to your personal health, you want to feel like you have your practitioner’s complete and undivided focus. painPRO Clinics ensure all physiotherapists perform one on one manual therapy, meaning you won’t be hooked up to a machine and left alone or abandoned while performing your exercises. 


Collaborative teamwork 

painPRO physiotherapists collaborate with other healthcare professionals within the clinic to generate comprehensive treatment plans targeted at improving recovery time for patients with tissue injury and dysfunction. This method allows for the most well-rounded approach to your care to ensure you feel better sooner.


When it comes to your physical health, put down the phone and go to someone who knows what they’re doing.
