Physiotherapy treatment is based on the study of physiology, neuroscience, and anatomy. It aims to restore the body’s normal functions, rehabilitate you to your usual activity, and reduce the chances of further injury.
Physiotherapy relies on physical methods such as massage, movements, and exercise and does not encourage the use of medicines like opioids and complicated invasive surgical procedures.

Conditions Physiotherapy can Treat:

Physiotherapy takes care of preventing future injuries and rehabilitate you to everyday life, and lets you perform usual activities.

Some of the conditions Physiotherapy can Treat:

  • Neck and Back pain caused by problems in the muscle and skeleton.
  • Problems with the bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments like arthritis and the after-effect of amputation
  • Lung problems such as asthma
  • Disability due to heart problems
  • Pelvic issues, such as bladder and bowel problems related to childbirth
  • Loss of mobility because of trauma to the brain or spine or due to diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis
  • Fatigue, pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of muscle strength.
  • What is Physiotherapy?

    Physiotherapy is a very advantageous treatment for injuries, disorders, and diseases. By using specific physical methods, it aids in restoring mobility, function, and movement in the affected area. Physiotherapy involves experimented and researched information about the workings of the human body and uses medically certified procedures for treatment.

    How will Physiotherapy help You?

    Physiotherapy aims to help patients regain their normal functional abilities by using techniques such as motivation, exercise, therapeutic models, and education.

    Physiotherapists are health care professionals who study anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and other allied sciences to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate patients with physical disabilities and disorders.

    Thus, physiotherapy utilizes certain approaches and techniques. Here are some of the techniques listed below:

  • Manual Therapy- It is also known as Mobilization and refers to the use of hands to mobilize the affected soft tissues and joints. Physiotherapists apply manual pressure with their hands to mobilize joints and soft tissues to reduce pain due to joint stiffness or muscle spasm. Manual therapy works best for treating musculoskeletal conditions like chronic back pain. Manual therapy is used to improve blood circulation and restore mobility of the affected area.
  • Exercises- Therapeutic exercise play an essential role in physiotherapy. Physiotherapy may incorporate exercises in the treatment plan in two ways. First, it can be used during the recovery phase of certain conditions like surgeries and sports injuries that affect the patient’s overall mobility. And secondly, some exercises can help strengthen the affected part of the body.
  • Electrotherapy- Electrotherapy is used in physiotherapy to promote muscle contraction, reduce pain and encourage healing. It uses an electric current or impulse to excite the nervous system, which leads to muscle contraction.
  • Hydrotherapy- This approach of physiotherapy uses water to aid recovery. Hydrotherapy is done in a shallow pool with warm water. Hydrotherapy is known for relieving pain in certain cases, but there is no clear-cut evidence to back it up. However, it is effective in improving blood circulation and relaxes contracted muscles.
  • Benefits of Physiotherapy
