Physiotherapy involves the treatment, healing, and prevention of injuries or disabilities.



Pain may range in intensity from slight, severe to agonizing, and can be intermittent or permanent.  It may be felt as sharp, throbbing, dull, nauseating, burning, or a combination of all of these feelings. The threshold of pain may vary from person to person.

Pain can be acute or chronic. The distinction between acute and chronic pain is based on the nature of the pain itself. Management and therapy is dependant on this distinction.

Acute Pain

General acute pain is usually caused by soft tissue damage, infection and/or inflammation among other causes. It is generally treated with medications or appropriate techniques for removing the cause and for controlling the pain sensation. Acute pain indicates an injury or malfunction of the body.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain may have no specifically apparent cause or may be caused by a developing illness or imbalance.  Its origin, duration, intensity, and specific symptoms vary. The symptoms of chronic pain include:

  • Pain that does not go away as expected after an illness or injury.
  • Pain that may be described as shooting, burning, aching, tingling.
  • Discomfort, soreness, tightness, or stiffness of the part/joint.
