|Rest is a key component to the body’s healing process|
|Ice reduces inflammation and pain.|
|Compression helps reduce swelling and pain|
|Elevation helps reduce swelling by reducing blood flow to the affected area|
|Sit with your legs flexed at 90-degree angle with your feet resting comfortably|
Patient’s satisfaction is a top priority for us. Our service delivers care to patients, both adults, and children. Well planned and properly organized program is one of the most important components of the overall treatment system adopted by us for the patients. To suit different requirements of patients, the programs are designed masterly to meet maximum functional restoration and return them to a healthy active lifestyle.
With our applied knowledge and understanding of the human body in action, we work with our patients to increase mobility, relieve pain, build strength, restore and increase the range of motion in joints, and revamp balance and cardiovascular function.
We not only treat injury, but we also explain how to prevent injury and the onset of pain that may limit activity. Education of our patients is a key component of the treatment plan.
Our physiotherapists will have to assess the physical condition of a patient in order to diagnose problems and implement a treatment plan, or alternatively they could also be re-training patients to walk, or helping others to cope with crutches, walking frames, or wheelchairs. The physiotherapists will also be responsible for educating their patients and their families, (as well as the community at large) to prevent injuries and to help those people lead healthy lifestyles. In some instances the physiotherapist may be asked to plan and put in place community fitness programmes. Finally, physiotherapists can also issue sick leave certificates if necessary.
Our physiotherapists will treat all manner of people including children with cerebral palsy, premature babies, pregnant women, people undergoing rehabilitation, athletes, the elderly (to try and get them fitter), and those needing help following heart disease, strokes, or major surgery.
Assessing and examining individuals of ages 16 and above with impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities in order to determine a diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention through assessment skills which involve observation, physical touch and test and measures.
These include examinations of:
• Aerobic capacity/endurance
• Neurological system
• Ergonomics, body mechanics and posture
• Gait, locomotion, and balance
• Joint integrity and mobility
• Motor control and motor learning and relearning
• Muscle strength, power and endurance
• Neuromuscular development and sensory integration
• Need form orthotic, protective, and supportive devices
• Range of motion (including muscle length)
• Ventilation, and the respiratory system
Improving function, promoting physical independence and alleviating impairments, via formulating, instructing and modifying physiotherapy interventions that include:
• Patient/client-related education
• Personal exercise program
• Functional training and retraining at work and at home
• Manual therapy techniques (including mobilisation/manipulation)
• Prescription, application of orthosis and assistive devices as necessary
• Airway clearance techniques
• Electrotherapeutic modalities such as ultrasound, interferential therapy and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens)
• Physical agents and mechanical modalities such as hot and cold therapy and traction.
In many cases an injury can be caused by other underlying factors. It could be that constant back pain is caused by repetitive work related activities, bad posture, being over-weight, or even adopting the wrong technique when playing a sport. Accordingly the physiotherapist not only treats the back pain but addresses the other factors too. This holistic approach aims to reduce the risk of the injury happening again.
• Prevention of Complications – Respiratory treatment, mobilization, and activity, with the objective of minimizing complications resulting from the operation, anaesthesia or immobility. Additionally, the treatment contributes to the prevention of deterioration and/or exacerbation of the pre-hospitalization medical condition.
• Promotion of Function and Mobility – Activation, strengthening and mobilization of the patient in order to enable resumption of maximal function and independence, using accessories if needed.
• Functional Assessment – Carrying out a functional assessment to recommend an appropriate framework for further treatment and promote the continuum of care, including rehabilitation.
• Advice and Instructions – Instructions for independent exercises and activity, to shorten the duration of recovery and promote general health.
