Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a group of services involving movement and exercises to help orthopaedic patients recover from their illness, injury, disability or post-surgery effects.
Rehabilitation is a set of interventions focused on improving the patient’s self-dependence and quality of life. The services offered at a rehabilitation centre aim at prolonging patient’s health, preventing diseases and improving treatment outcomes.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation centre provides a comprehensive range of services in a comfortable, home-like environment.
Physiotherapy is a traditional method with proven benefits. It involves specialised tailor-made techniques to support orthopaedic patients in their treatment. Sometimes, physiotherapy is offered as individual treatment while at other times, it is combined with other lines of treatment.
Here is how physiotherapy can benefit you:
Alleviating pain – Physiotherapy is largely effective in reducing pain which is the foremost symptom among most patients.
Improving strength – It is beneficial in restoring your physical strength with the help of guided exercises and physical activities.
Prevents damage – It can largely prevent further damage to the affected area or other parts of the body. Physiotherapy not only reduces pain but limits the effects of the condition to the affected site.
Avoid surgery – Physiotherapy may help certain patients avoid the need for surgical interventions. However, only your healthcare provider will be able to determine this based on your overall health condition.
Improves mobility – Specially designed physiotherapy exercises can help in improving your range of movement, balance and flexibility by strengthening your muscles.
Avoid the risk of injury – This is especially important in the case of sports injuries. Physical therapy can help reduce the risk of further injuries such as stress fractures. It can also help in improving your body’s mobility and balance enabling you to prevent falls.
Physiotherapy can involve a wide range of approaches depending upon your particular condition and your health goals. Listed below are some common techniques and approaches used by physiotherapists:
Mobility exercises – Your physiotherapist will design exercises to increase your range of movement. Your healthcare provider may guide you with specific exercises such as walking and swimming to improve your mobility.
Hydrotherapy – Hydrotherapy is also sometimes known as aquatic therapy. This form of therapy is offered under warm water and helps in relaxing your muscles and joints. Water acts as good resistance and promotes strength capacity.
Stretching and strengthening – Your physiotherapist will offer you and guide you through particular exercises to help build and restore your strength.
Mobility aids – Physiotherapy also helps you adapt to and benefit from mobility aids such as crutches and walking sticks.
Manual therapy – Manual therapy is a form of physiotherapy technique designed to manually relieve pain, stiffness and improve blood circulation at the affected area.
Acupuncture – Acupuncture is a well-known technique in which thin, fine needles are used to insert pressure at specific points on your body to promote relaxation.
TENS – TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) is a pain-relief method. It is a form of electrotherapy in which your physiotherapists sends small electric currents to your affected area.
Physiotherapy ultrasound – In this technique, high-frequency ultrasound waves are sent and used to treat deep tissue injuries. Ultrasounds help in stimulating blood circulation and offers pain relief as a result of the same.
Rehabilitation is a group of services aimed at improving your quality of life post-treatment through personalised guidance and advice. Rehabilitation as a service promotes an individual’s independence by teaching them skills, exercises and activities that they can put to use by themselves after they have recovered.
Rehabilitation is a patient-centric approach based on the long-term health goals of a person. This group of techniques helps in minimising the effects of injury, illness, trauma or disability.
Good experience. The physiotherapy and rehabilitation centre is very upto the mark. The physiotherapists are very professional yet friendly and considerate. I have a great experience and would highly recommend the hospital. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
My experience at the CK Birla Hospital was brilliant. I had to undergo a knee arthroscopy due to sports injuries. The surgery was successful and I also benefitted largely from the physiotherapy. I told the doctor that I want to get back in the game as soon as possible. The care team ensured that my dream was possible. They provide excellent physiotherapy and rehabilitation service at their centre. 10/10 for the overall experience. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
