Physiotherapy is a mode of medical science in which physiotherapists provide relief from the pain of injuries, tissue-related problems, muscle strains, and bone pains. Physiotherapy is a medical treatment that is a combination of injury prevention, rehabilitation, overall fitness, and permanent therapy. Physio mostly focuses on the movements of the limbs. The job of the physiotherapist is to remove a limb from a state of disability or how to restore its function from a less functioning organ.
The physio works in amalgamation with techniques such as exercise and massage to regain mobility, and once a diagnosis is found, these techniques are applied. According to the diagnosis, patients can choose which treatment plan they should opt for, and that plan will improve their overall well-being and help them restore their normal (pain-free) routine.
Specializing in the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with cardiothoracic, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal problems that affect people’s mobility, physiotherapists help people improve their daily lives through improved physical function. Along with this, they also try to get relief from the pain caused by injury.
Dr. Manish Kumar Chauhan, Physiotherapist at Infinity Care Hospital, Varanasi, says that people take the help of physiotherapy when they are recovering from a major injury or surgery, and they go through healing sessions that relieve the pain that restricts their mobility and strength. There are many reasons a person can seek the help of a physiotherapist to correct muscle spasms, incorrect posture, muscle strains, etc. The physio provides relief from pain to the patient and helps them to live their lives easily. The physiotherapist also tells them what things they must avoid in the future so that the patient does not have to face further pain.
People go for physio sessions for the following common reasons:
To get relief from the pain of an injury,
To sit properly while working (especially if the patient is doing a desk job)
To reduce muscle spasms,
To help with muscle stretching and flexibility.
To recover faster after surgery
To help with knee or hip surgery.
To improve the balance of the body
To get relief from joint pain in old age.
Dr. Manish Kumar Singh further adds that physiotherapy provides pain relief to patients of all ages, be it any kind of injury or disease. Once you consult and seek help from a licensed physiotherapist and find a treatment plan that works with your diagnosis, you can ensure a healthy and active life in the future.
