Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation

Mark was finally able to walk in a straight posture toward his car. Working as a construction worker had taken a toll on his spine. Instead of surgery he preferred a non-invasive treatment which included Physiotherapy and Chiropractic therapy. That is the power of physio.


Why Physiotherapy?


Physiotherapy is a non surgical treatment which is used to cure diseases, deformity, and injuries by physical means such as force, heat, massages, etc. A Physiotherapist makes use of modern technology such as X-Rays, Musculoskeletal exams and other tests to determine the underlying cause.

In today's fast and furious corporate lifestyle, health and wellbeing are at great risk. People are have limitless aspirations and aggressive work schedules which takes a toll on their body especially the spine and the neck; this is due to prolonged sitting. As a result, people switch to over the counter drugs for pain relief and pain management. That's where Physiotherapy steps in. Physiotherapy not only reduces the drug intake in the present scenario but it also prevents us from taking more medications in the future. Being just as effective but much safer than medicines, it greatly helps to improve the lifestyle. Some of the conditions treated by Physiotherapy are listed below.

     Cardiorespiratory: Heart and Lung diseases such as asthma
     Orthopedic: Arthritis and Amputations
     Neurological: Patients with damaged spinal cord, suffered from stroke and Parkinson's.
     Pain: Managing Pain
     Musculoskeletal: Pain in back and neck
     Cancer and palliative care: Managing fatigue and joint stiffness.
     Women's Health: Postpartum care. Managing menopause, bedwetting etc.
     Sports Injuries.

Physiotherapists work in conjunction with other medical practitioners to get the desired results.



Why Rehabilitation?


Rehabilitation is a procedure to restore the patient's health and body functions to normal after a prolonged illness or injury. It involves various types of therapies, counselling, and dietary changes. The time to rehabilitate a person depends on the person's health, type of injury and body condition.
