Rehabilitation (Physiotherapy)

If there is a serious injury, a stroke or a heart attack or if there is a long-term condition, the support from a team of health professionals is much required. Rehabilitation or physiotherapy is about helping and supporting the individuals to adjust, recover or achieve their full potential and live active lives as much as possible. Rehabilitation or physiotherapy should start as soon as possible to ensure a speedy recovery, as research shows that it can improve not only the mobility and activity levels but can also shorten the time needed to stay in the hospitals. Physiotherapy is also needed to improve the quality of life.

If physiotherapy is a part of the rehabilitation process, the following are done to ensure speedy recovery:>

  • Set the goals to find out what is important for the body and the individual as a whole.
  • Assess the extent and nature of the problems.
  • Provide support, advice and treatment.
  • Regularly evaluate the progression.

Though often, physiotherapy and rehabilitation are the terms considered together, they are different in certain aspects. Physiotherapy is just one aspect of rehabilitation. On the other hand, the rehabilitation program comprises different therapies, where the trained rehabilitation specialists help the patients on their road to recovery. When it is about the physiotherapy aspect of rehabilitation, it is entirely focussed on training the body to sustain improved conditions of capability and muscle power. The physical training is determined by the region of injury as well as the extent of injury in the body. The training is most of the times goal-oriented and aims at enhancing the strength and durability of the patient. The training also includes motor-skill exercises as well as various pain-relieving techniques.
