Edmonton therapists


When you say a therapist, it means that he or she is a person that has the right training and skills to initiate treatment in a stressed out body or mind. A therapist in Edmonton can either be a physical therapist or physiotherapist, or a psychotherapist. What is the difference? Here goes:

* Physical therapist/physiotherapist – Physical therapists are commonly associated with the masseuse, massager, and the like. Physical therapists are basically concerned about the health and well being of the physical body. Fields of specialization related to physical therapy include geriatric therapy, neuro, pediatric, cardiopulmonary, orthopedic, and integumentary.

* Psychotherapy – This type of therapy, on the other hand, is for people who are struggling with personal problems such as depression, stress, anxiety attacks, problems with self esteem, or problems with socializing. People who are recuperating or in need of moral support to fight for a grave illness as well as those who have nervous system disorders would also benefit from this kind of therapy.

We also know of another type of therapy, known to many as chemotherapy. This kind of therapy is used by doctors and surgeons to treat cancer.

Another field in therapy that is very well recognized in Edmonton as well as in the rest of the country is what we call occupational therapy. Occupational therapy is a kind of therapy that is aimed at bringing purpose and meaning to life. Occupational therapists help people determine what their goals should be and how to strive for it through the power of the mind and motivation. Occupational therapists in Edmonton can be found mostly in health care institutions, community agencies, or social affairs agencies. There are also a number of occupational therapists who are self employed. The profession of occupational therapists in Edmonton is regulated by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
