Physiotherapy is a branch of medicine that focuses on curing and rehabilitating physical injuries through a series of specialized exercises and pain relief treatments. Physiotherapy helps your body heal itself and restores it to its pre-injury functionality. The treatment therefore, has no side effects and helps in preventing the recurrence of pain.
Physiotherapy aids people in leading a healthier and more independent life, irrespective of their injuries and disorders. From professional athletic injuries to the treatment of chronic diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, physiotherapy is beneficial even for post-surgery rehabilitation.
A physiotherapist is a certified medical practitioner and an operational member of the medical community. Just as doctors are referred to as MD and nurses as RN, a physiotherapist is referred as PT for ease of interaction.
An appointment with our physiotherapist begins with a thorough assessment of your injuries and recurring pain. Your therapist will then instruct you with a series of movements that you need to restrict to avoid worsening your pain.
The PT will then devise a treatment plan for you comprising of therapeutic exercises and movements that help in healing your muscles and tendons. The physiotherapist will also use different techniques such as acupuncture, electronic stimulation, and ultrasound to alleviate your pain.
A therapist not only helps you heal your wounds but also creates a plan for you that lets you return to your normal lifestyle pain-free.
