    Dr.Ashima is an extremely empathetic, punctual and reasonable physiotherapist. She treated my father for rehabilitation of his broken arm and within 10 days we could see a remarkable improvement in his hand movements. She was like a teacher to my dad and he was immensely impressed by the way she dealt with the whole situation. Although my parents are back to their hometown now, Ashima is still in touch with them to know about the progress they have made with the treatment and also if my dad is exercising as instructed. Way to go Ashima!

Physical therapy can also be carried out in the form of consultation, research, education and administration, besides clinical practice. The aim of physiotherapy is rehabilitation, recovery, health promotion and injury prevention. The key element to this type of treatment is to approach with a consideration of the patient’s lifestyle and carve out a holistic treatment solution that patients can easily integrate in their lives.

Health conditions treated by a physiotherapist

Following a diagnosis and a prognosis, you may be referred to a PT professional or you can consult a practicing physiotherapist of your choice for valuable assistance to treat your injuries and problems. Each type of injury needs to be treated with the appropriate therapy, which demands professional level specialization in the particular field. Also, given that the knowledge body of physical therapy is vast and each treatment is only applicable to the exclusive field, you need to consult the relevant physical therapist. As the goal of these professionals is to rehabilitate you from your injuries and trauma in the shortest period of time possible, you should have a clear knowledge of what you require and the therapy you need to undergo. At present, physiotherapy services in Delhi are offered broadly under the health issues related to following areas:

  • Cardiorespiratory: This type of treatment involves the issues related to the heart and the lungs. The therapy is a combination of supportive treatment, prevention of injuries post-surgery and helping your body regain its normal functionality after a pulmonary or cardiac surgery. For instance, after a coronary bypass surgery, the cardio therapy practitioner will focus on bringing your body back to its original stamina and functional impedance of your heart. Another example may be made of those suffering with cystic fibrosis of the lungs. Chest physiotherapists use mechanical hand motions everyday on the chest, a form of percussion, to drive the sputum out of the air cavity and increase expectoration. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary disorders and heart attacks are benefited from such cardiopulmonary therapy sessions.

  • Age related conditions: Known as geriatric physiotherapy in the medical sphere, it is used to treat problems encountered when we age into the older adult phase of our lives. This is a wide field of therapy and usually covers a number of problems people experience as they grow older. Geriatric physiotherapists can treat old-age issues related, but not limited to Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, arthritis & osteoporosis, balance disorders, hip & joint replacement and incontinence (involuntary urination).

  • Integumentary: These are related to the skin and all its underlying organs. The issues may be burn injuries and skin wounds; the focus lies on reducing swelling and removal of burnt or contaminated skin part. The services offered by the physical therapists are much akin to those provided by the medical doctors and nurses in the hospitals rooms. Physical therapist may utilize surgical instruments, wound irrigators, compressor bandages, dressings, topical agents, edema control, splinting and even exercise.

  • Neurological: This type of work focuses on those patients with a neurological disease or disorder, also known as neurophysiotherapy or neurological rehabilitation. The patients with such disorders have difficulties with and impairments in vision, balance & daily movement, muscular and functional independence. The therapy requires special training and skills to treat disorders ranging from Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s disease, from brain to spinal cord injuries, from cerebral to facial palsy and even ALS to stroke to chronic back pains.

  • Orthopedic: Disorders and injuries related to the muscular and skeletal systems are managed by orthopedic physiotherapists. The treatment also includes rehabilitation after orthopedic surgeries. This type of therapy deals with deformities (e.g.: scoliosis), injuries related to insidious onset (e.g.: tendinopathy and bursitis), acute trauma (e.g.: strains and sprains), sports injuries, amputations, fractures, arthritis, neck &back pain and spinal conditions. Use mobilization techniques for joints and spines, therapeutic exercises, dry needling, electrical stimulations, hot or cold packs and muscle re-training (re-education) constitute treatment solutions to problems related to orthopedics.

  • Pediatrics: Pediatric physiotherapy specializes in the diagnosis, management and treatment of the younger age groups starting from infants to early adolescents. These therapists focus on early detection of health problems and disorders in the pediatric population such as acquired genetic, neuromuscular, skeletal or congenital diseases (disorders). The type of treatments carried out under this field include strengthening and improving balance and coordination, sensory and cognitive processing (integration), general and fine motor skills as well as body endurance and strength.

  • Sports and athletics: Physical therapists focus on the well-being and care of the athletes and sports person, encompassing management of athletic injuries. Recreational, semi-professional and fully professional therapists cater to the following categories of injuries:  Acute care – examination of an injury and its assessment  Treatment – treatment techniques accompanied by specialist advice and activities to encourage healing.  Rehabilitation – gradually bringing in actions to enable full return to normalcy.  Prevention – assessment of movements by identification of direct or indirect injury precursors  Education – imparting knowledge to individuals, clubs or teams to assist in management and prevention of injuries.  Athletic physiotherapists are certified with their specialisation in sports therapy through registrations in national organisations.

  • Women’s health: This type of therapy focuses on women’s health in relation to the reproductive system, child birth and post-partum support. The types of issues women usually encounter in these periods include pelvic pain, period problems in pre-natal and post-partum, osteoporosis, lymphedema, urinary incontinence and even pelvic floor dysfunctions. Therapy is performed even to increase the chance of conception in women.

  • Oncology and palliative: Physiotherapy in cancer and palliative care has been on the rise for both malignant and benign (non-malignant) diseases. Early diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation have been recognised for their importance in making patients live longer post trauma. This is considered importance as allowing them live in an environment of minimum dependency can help them optimize their quality of life, irrespective of the prognosis.

  • Back pain: It is a scientifically proven fact that physical therapy sessions can lessen pain and help improve conditions of injury and impaired functions. Back pain treatment works on reducing or removing the pain and working on ways to prevent the risks of future injuries/ pains by strengthening muscles. Although the methods may vary from one physiotherapist to another, the focus is on the removal of pain by getting rid of the cause, inflammation or swelling.

  • Community: This concept is based on rehabilitation of disabled conditions through community education, transferring and passing on the knowledge and basic skills to the management and treatment of acute and chronic diseases and disabilities. Socially responsible and specially trained candidates of physiotherapy take efforts in promoting the concept of community health and healthy living.

What is Physical therapy or physiotherapy?

Physical therapy or Physiotherapy, also abbreviated as PT, is the use of physical movement, mechanical forces, electric stimulation, and exercise regiments to aid in repair, remedy and recovery from physical problems, injuries and problems with mobility & functions. The therapy is performed by certified professionals known as physiotherapists or physical therapists. Patients are taken through various methodological stages of treatment:

10 Instances When You Should Consult a Physiotherapist

Injury, illness and physiological damage are a part of our lives and when they strike, we should always to fight back and jump up to our feet again. Medications may prove to be effective as short term treatments to pain and injuries but to go long term, patients have to be treated, managed and guided about the effectiveness of physiotherapy. The importance of physical therapy does not end at diagnosis, treatment but also extends to prevention of future injuries of the same kind. The therapy works at re-educating or reconditioning the body, muscles and bones to its previous good form. Some of the reasons why you must make a visit to the physiotherapist’s clinic are listed below:

Techniques used by physiotherapists for treatment

Depending upon the nature of injury or the problem of patients, physiotherapists employ a variety of means and techniques to proceed with successful treatment of illness. Some of them may be clubbed as:

  • Examination – This can be performed by either your primary care provider (PCP) or you can refer to a physical examiner to check your general health and physical status.

  • Diagnosis – Analysing the results of the physical examination and elaborating it into presentable information for your better understanding

  • Prognosis – Predicting the likely course of your physical or medical condition, including forecasting a likely outcome.

  • Physical intervention – This is the treatment phase when the actual therapy services are provided to you.

  • Manual manipulation or mechanical intervention: Externally induced physical movements can help relax overly tight muscles, muscle spasms, improve circulations and even drain fluids from the swellings. These physical movements are induced on moving joints and soft tissues for treatments.

  • Electrical stimulation: Stimulation of nerves with small electric currents can help mask pain in affected areas. This type of therapy is used to block or suppress pain signals from reaching the brain.

  • Acupuncture: Similar to electric nerve stimulation, this technique makes use of needles to stimulate the nerves. This helps in dulling out pain, release tight muscles, regulate body functionality and even give boost to the immune system.

  • Demonstration: Educating or teaching the patients about correct movement patterns and the risks involved in future injuries help patients heal better in a minimum amount of time.

  • Functional examination: It forms the ground work in assessment of the patient’s condition and their physical abilities.

  • Device provision: This therapy is related to the use of devices and equipment for the purpose of assistance, support and protection. The device is prescribed by the practitioner, followed by fabrication and application on the patient’s body.

  • Sports injuries: Sportsmen and athletics may have a never say die spirit when faced with heavy challenges but when it comes to injuries that pose a risk to their careers, it can be a major life-changer for them. The best answer is to seek out the professional help of a physiotherapist and get out of harm’s way. Certified therapists (trainers) can help relax the muscles and bones, which in turn improves mobility, performance and efficiency of movement. They also offer guides on the correct form of movement and these can be a jewel to athletes than can’t risk suffering a future injury.

  • During pregnancy: A woman undergoes drastic changes starting right from the first month to the last. And the situation does not end here. Pregnancy results in an alteration of body posture in addition to the total weight of the growing baby in the womb and the body. Whether it is the emotion instability overtaking or the havoc of the extra weight or the depression that ensues after pregnancy, a therapy session is the best way to overcome such a storm.
