dedicated for your wellness
A physical therapist helps take care of patients in all phases of healing, from initial diagnosis to restorative and preventive stages of recovery. Physical therapy may be a standalone option, or it may support other treatments.
Some patients are referred to a physical therapist by a doctor, while others seek therapy themselves.
Our expert physiotherapists are well experienced and maintain a proper protocol to every patient:
- conduct a physical exam and evaluation of a person’s movement, flexibility, muscle and joint motion, and performance, including finding out about their health history
- give a clinical diagnosis, prognosis, and plan of care with short- and long-term goals
- perform physical therapy treatment and intervention
- give self-management recommendations, including exercises a person can do at home
Apart from physical manipulation, physical therapy treatment may involve:
- Iontophoresis: This uses an electrical current to deliver certain medications, such as topical steroids. This can decrease the presence of inflammation.
- Electrical stimulation (e-stim): There are two types of e-stim. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation reduces pain. By contrast, neuromuscular electrical stimulation works to stimulate muscular motor units to improve muscular engagement.
- Heat, moist heat, and cold therapy: These may provide benefits to a range of conditions.
- Light therapy: This involves using special lights and lasers to treat certain medical conditions.
