Physiotherapy and physical therapy are interchangeable terms. Practically speaking, there's little to no difference between these two treatments. But some people consider physiotherapy as a more hands-on manual approach, while physical therapy is more exercise-based. Regardless, training and treatment should be your top considerations when looking for a therapist.
Physical therapy sessions usually last for 30-60 minutes. The frequency of these sessions will depend on the person's condition.

Health & Wellness Services
What do physiotherapy services include?
Physiotherapy services include assessing, diagnosing, and treating injuries and disabilities. A physiotherapist has the knowledge and hands-on clinical skills concerning injury treatment.
Your physiotherapy may start with an assessment of your holistic health and the root cause of your condition.
Then, they can determine suitable exercises or movements to treat your problem. Below are the standard treatment methods in physiotherapy.
Movement and exercise
Your physiotherapist can teach you physical exercises you can safely do at home. This set of exercises is tailored to your condition and ability to do certain movements. Movement and exercise is one way to regain mobility after surgery, manage chronic conditions, and prevent injury.
Such exercises may improve your range of motion, muscle strength, balance, and coordination. You can hire a Tasker to set up your home exercise equipment, should your physio recommend such devices. Meanwhile, a home chef can prepare healthy meals that can support your recovery.
Manual therapy makes use of skilled hands instead of a machine. What’s more, manual therapy mobilises joints in various directions and speeds. A physiotherapist performs manual therapy, but the patient can control the exercises by tensing their muscles. Manual therapy treats joints with limited movement.
Through manual therapy, a patient can regain mobility, regulate pain, and reduce soft tissue swelling. While you recover at home, you can hire a Tasker to pick up your groceries or keep your house tidy. Taskers are here to help you get things done.
Dry needling involves inserting fine needles or acupuncture needles into the skin and muscles. The therapist targets myofascial trigger points when inserting the needles. Also, the therapist may insert these needles at varying depths. Physiotherapists sometimes use dry needling to help treat conditions like lower back pain and stroke. Dry needling may alleviate pain and restore muscle strength.
However, the effectiveness of dry needling varies from person to person. The effectiveness will also depend on the therapist’s skills. If you’re on medication, are pregnant, or have diabetes, you should consult a doctor before going through dry needling.
Hydrotherapy allows individuals to do specific exercises that they can't safely perform out of water. In hydrotherapy, the patient exercises in a warm shallow pool with a temperature of 33-36ºC. Hydrotherapy offers many unique benefits.
For example, the buoyancy of the water supports a patient’s weight and allows them to move around without overexerting their joints. Furthermore, the warmth of the water relaxes the muscles and eases joint pain. If you’re practising hydrotherapy at home, a pool maintenance Tasker can get your pool up and running or do a routine cleaning for you.
