Physiotherapist – Daniel Choudhury
Daniel’s passion for physiotherapy is long-standing and deeply rooted in his conviction that the human body has an extraordinary capacity to learn and heal, given the right conditions. He believes in an integrated, functional approach to rehabilitation where each individual is provided with customized care that addresses their unique needs. He incorporates manual therapy, exercise prescription, patient education and modalities into his practice, ensuring comprehensive, effective care. He also has a keen interest in clinical holistic nutrition, believing that in order for the body to work at its best, it must be properly nourished.
Since graduating from the University of Toronto with a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy, he has further complemented his knowledge and skills by taking courses in Manual Therapy, Neuroproprioceptive Taping, Soft Tissue Release and Temporomandibular Joint Rehabilitation, and is currently receiving training in acupuncture and IMS.
Daniel is excited to be able to join the team at Yellow Gazebo, and looks forward to working with you.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the practice of improving your quality of life by promoting optimal mobility and overall health and well-being. Physiotherapy can also help to prevent illness and disease, manage acute and chronic conditions, and help you to rehabilitate from injury or the effects of disease or disability. It can also can help create for you maintenance plans that will prevent re-occurrence or re-injury. Physiotherapy has its basis in the movement sciences, and aims to enhance or restore the function of your entire body. One who practices physiotherapy is known as a physiotherapist.
How does a physiotherapist work?
After taking an initial health-history with you, your physiotherapist will also likely assess you via some physical tests or measures, such as your range of motion or flexibility. Then, you will be provided with a reasonable diagnosis, and together you can explore the various treatment methods and thereby devise an appropriate plan for treatment.
During the course of your treatment, your physiotherapist may incorporate massage, joint mobilization, personalized exercise regimens, and any other number of modalities aimed at improving your healing time and enhancing your functional mobility. You will also likely be given advice in regards to lifestyle changes that you can make to facilitate your treatment, e.g. mitigating work or home stressors that contribute to your main complaints. While many physiotherapists prefer to use a variety of machines in their practice, we at Yellow Gazebo feel that hands-on treatment is not only more enjoyable for you, the patient, but is also more effective in producing lasting results.
