Physiotherapy is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention. It is a therapy that uses mechanical force and movements.

Physiotherapy helps restore mobility and normalcy in a patient's life after he/she is affected by an injury, disease, or disability. Components of a physiotherapy session include manual therapy, advising and educating the patient. Physiotherapy can help a patient of any age to manage further pain and prevent subsequent injuries or diseases. In a nutshell, physiotherapy helps a patient improve and maximize his/her physical strength, functioning, and general well-being while taking care of the underlying issues. Some of the conditions treated by Physiotherapy are as under:

  • Cardio-pulmonary conditions such as COPD, myocardial infarction, and cystic fibrosis.
  • Hand therapy in conditions such as trigger finger and Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).
  • Tears in the rotator cuff, lower or upper back pain, and TMJ.
  • Injuries to the spinal cord, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, trauma to the brain, and vestibular dysfunction.
  • Cerebral Palsy and other developmental disorders in children.
  • Sports-related injuries

Physiotherapy resolves the illnesses or injuries that limit peoples' abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physiotherapists use an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan, and when necessary, incorporate the results of laboratory and imaging studies like X-rays, CT-scan, or MRI findings.

Physiotherapists work with individuals to prevent mobility loss by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles. They provide services to individuals and populations to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan.
