Active and Passive Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy can involve both active and passive forms of care to help clients in the rehabilitation process.
Active Physiotherapy care involves any kind of treatment where your are physically involved. This might mean that you are moving a joint or a muscle, either with the assistance of your physiotherapist or other care provider, or without. Other care providers can include Kinesiologists, Physiotherapy Assistants, and Active Care Specialists who work with the Physiotherapist to support client care.
Examples of active physiotherapy treatment include manual therapy, exercise programs, stretching, strengthening, use of our Theraballs and Therabands, walking on the treadmill, and cycling a stationary bike.
Passive Physiotherapy care involves the use of non-invasive, specialized equipment to provide physical stimulation to assist in the healing process. Passive physiotherapy treatment focuses more on pain relief. Passive therapies do not involve the movement of your muscles or joints.
Some common modalities used by physiotherapists in passive care include heat and cold, ultrasound, and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) machines.
