our specific approach to treatment to create a long term solution, always taking EACH PATIENT’S SPECIFIC NEEDS into account, TO REACH THEir OPTIMAL potential FOR THE BEST QUALITY OF LIfe.
Anna Physios has a holistic, patient-centred, bio-psycho-social approach to the treatment and rehabilitation plan in collaboration with each patients’ specific goals and dreams for a quality life. Our services are aimed at treating the root of the problem (rehab and education) and not only treating the symptoms (hand-on), and to equip you with knowledge and an understanding of your own pathology and situation. A better understanding forms the foundation and motivation to actively participate in your rehabilitation exercise program for a long term solution.
... we want to help you, to help yourself ... To be independent to manage your own condition!
Treatment, EDUCATION AND Rehab Plan
Rehabilitation and education always forms part of your treatment at Anna Swanepoel Physiotherapists. Your rehabilitation plan will depend on your needs and goals – this can range from:
• Education with regards to your condition, how the brain and pain work together, explaining bodymechanics and much more – the better you understand your condition, the better you can manage it yourself!
• Education about pain and that pain is not always your enemy – to understand the “I am sore but I am safe” attitude to activities and exercises.
• Knowledge about pacing strategies, your flare-up plan, progression of your exercises.
• Individualized home exercise program with follow-up session with your physio for progression.
• You may be referred to Bio-Pilates if more individualised attention is needed or Pilates group classes. This is optional to our patients.
• To a biokineticist for final phase of rehabilitation.
DIFFERENT REHABILITATION OPTIONS WITH ANNA PHYSIOS:
Rehabilitation does not always mean to undo or reverse damage caused by disease or trauma but rather to restore and assist the individual to optimal health, functioning and well-being.
