Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy


Every patient who has undergone surgery, illness or any other trauma desires to get back to their normal routine as fast as possible. For that, they need to go through rehabilitation, a process of restoring and regaining their physical strength and function. This process is usually done in the following stages:  

  • Acute or Physician Care Stage: is when staying at the hospital stabilizes the patient’s condition. This is typically recommended for patients with serious injuries or multiple traumas.
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Stage: is when the patients will start to regain the functions of the different parts of the body from the different therapies that have been provided. This condition of the patient determines the result of this stage.
  • Outpatient Rehab Stage: is when the patient undergoes a rehabilitation program as part of the treatment plan, usually recommended after the patient has been discharged from the hospital.

What is Physiotherapy?

It is a branch of medicine that deals with physical medicine and rehabilitation that is provided along with other treatment options for the full recovery of a patient.

Physiotherapy uses mechanical force and movement to cure the patient’s impairments and also boost the mobility, function, and the quality of life of the patient. The physiotherapist starts off by first examining the patient to diagnose the issue, then chalk out a treatment plan, which will involve physical intervention.
