My sister has been a patient of a Halifax physiotherapy clinic twice. The first time it was after a fender-bender car accident. That evening after the accident, Kathleen thought she was just shook up, but by the next morning, it was apparent that she had experienced an injury causing severe neck pain. I drove her to the doctor, who told Kathleen that being in a state of shock after an accident commonly prevents people from realizing they have actually been injured. In addition, sleeping for several hours also can lead the pain of the injury to present itself because of stiffness that develops during rest. To relieve the whiplash injury, Kathleen participated in physiotherapy and also received massage therapy.
Years later, Kathleen needed physiotherapy to recover from hamstring tendonitis. This took several sessions and Kathleen also had some mild-level exercises she needed to do at home on a daily basis. When the physiotherapist evaluated my sister as 80 percent recovered from this injury, he gave Kathleen the green light to start running again, but advised her to take it easy. She was eager to get back to her favorite athletic activity, and grateful to the Halifax physiotherapy clinic for their assistance.
