Physiotherapy is the hands-on, drug-free treatment of injuries, diseases, or physical issues using techniques like massage, heart and heat therapy, stretching, and exercises. Physiotherapy is a rehabilitation science which aims at maximizing the functional potential of an individual who has a disease dysfunction or injury. It aims to promote health and fitness in every individual’s life. The spacious physiotherapy department is a gateway to the path of better health and fitness.
PhysioRehab’s practice is based on the 3 cornerstones of our philosophy:
• Evidence based practice
• Clinical skills
• Patient satisfaction
Physiotherapy can be defined as a treatment method that focuses on the science of movement and helps people to restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being by addressing the underlying physical issues.
Physiotherapy rehabilitation aims to optimize patient function and well-being, to help integrate that patient back into their chosen lifestyle activities whether at home, work or leisure. Rehabilitation should focus on changes to functional disability and lifestyle restrictions based on the patient’s own goals for functional improvement.
Fractures may take several weeks to months to heal completely. You should limit your activities even after the removal of cast or brace so that the bone become solid enough to bear the stress. Rehabilitation program involves exercises and gradual increase in activity levels until the process of healing is complete. Fractures may take several weeks to months to heal completely.

The need for rehabilitation crosses all age groups, although the type, level, and goals of rehabilitation often differ by age. People with chronic impairments, often older people, have different goals and require less intensive rehabilitation or a longer period of rehabilitation than do younger people with a temporary impairment (such as that due to a fracture or burn). Where rehabilitation takes place depends on the person's needs. Many people recovering from injuries can be treated as outpatients in a therapist's office. People with severe disabilities may need care in a hospital or inpatient rehabilitation center. For example, the goal of an older person who has severe heart failure and has had a stroke may simply be to regain the ability to do as many self-care activities such as eating, dressing, bathing, transferring between a bed and a chair, using the toilet, and controlling bladder and bowel function as possible. The goal of a younger person who has had a fracture is often to regain all functions as quickly as possible. Nonetheless, age alone is not a reason to alter goals or the intensity of rehabilitation, but the presence of other disorders or limitations may be.
Rehabilitation can be used for recovery from injury or disease and also for the management of long-term conditions .
Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible to speed recovery. The programs that combine many different components are likely to be most effective.
