10 Common Injuries Physiotherapists Treat

At Central Health Rehab our Whitby Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who specialize in treating physical injuries and conditions through the use of various therapies and exercises. We work with the surrounding communities of Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa to help people recover from surgery, sports injuries, general aches and pains and chronic pain. Here are ten common injuries and conditions that physiotherapists frequently treat:

  1. Sprains and strains: These are common injuries that occur when a joint is stretched or twisted beyond its normal range of motion. Sprains usually affect ligaments, while strains affect muscles or tendons. Our Whitby physiotherapists may use techniques such as ice, heat, and massage to reduce inflammation and swelling, as well as prescribe stretches and exercises to help restore normal range of motion and strength.

  2. Fractures: Fractures, or broken bones, can be caused by a variety of factors, including falls, car accidents, and sports injuries. Our Whitby physiotherapists can help patients with fractures recover by providing support and guidance as they heal, as well as helping them regain strength and mobility through exercises and stretches.

  3. Tendinitis: Tendinitis is a condition in which the tendons, which connect muscles to bones, become inflamed. It can be caused by overuse, repetitive strain, or other injuries. Our Whitby physiotherapists can help reduce inflammation and pain through techniques such as ice, heat, and massage, as well as prescribe exercises to help strengthen the affected area.

  4. Arthritis: Arthritis is a common condition that causes inflammation in the joints, leading to pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving. Our Whitby physiotherapists can help patients with arthritis by prescribing exercises and stretches to improve flexibility and strength, as well as providing techniques to manage pain and improve overall function.

  5. Back pain: Back pain is a common problem that can range from mild to severe and may be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, muscle strains, and injuries.
