Department:

In general scenarios, sometimes physiotherapy is recommended even to those without any abnormalities. In such cases, the intent is to enhance an individual’s quality of life and ease of physical movements. Especially those in professions including physical tension such as gymnasts, acrobats, sportsmen, actors etc., have to undergo routine physiotherapy sessions. While in case of disorders / pain arising out of abnormal factors, the doctor will need a detailed patient review before boiling down to the right physiotherapy strategy. A regular physiotherapy regime may include specific exercises, movement routines, and rarely some medication. The doctor will employ a number of ways to get the desired result, such as prescribing or supporting with certain exercises, manual therapy and / or manipulation, or mechanical means such as electro physical modalities including orthoses, sound waves, assistive devices, heat, cold, electricity and other interventions. In the end, this branch of medicine is one that continuously aims to better an individual’s life by optimizing their bodily functions and movement. PTs also ensure that in cases such as aging, disease, environmental factors, and injury where the disorder might lead to loss of mobility, the patient employs the correct physiotherapy regime and wellness driven programs.
