A healing method mainly focussed on restoring full mobility, physiotherapy has been in practice since unknown time. It is known to have been a part of ancient medicine though not in the same form it is being practiced today.
The main goal of physiotherapy is to restore the complete range of mobility and to recover from injuries or illnesses. Physiotherapy treatment helps not just in improving the flexibility, range of motion or muscle function, it helps in reducing the pain in soft tissues such as the tendons, ligaments or muscles. They help in regaining or improving muscle strength as well.
Physiotherapy is one of the main restorative techniques that help in restoring the body to normal function following a trauma due to accident or diseases. With a wide array of techniques to stimulate the muscles and tendons, they are an important adjunct for postoperative treatment of orthopedic disorders.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in association with sports medicine as well. It provides ideal solutions for rehabilitation for players following an injury. They help in improving the quality of life and decreases the inconveniences caused due to conditions such as arthritis, spinal stenosis or Parkinson’s disease.
Different Types of Physiotherapy Techniques
The techniques involved in physiotherapy vary based on the musculoskeletal condition for which it is being done. The different types of physiotherapy interventions or techniques are as follows: -
I am 45 yr old, I had a fracture in my left hip which was operated in my childhood. However I had progressive shortening and limp associated with severe pain in my left hip.After careful assessment it was reoperated and total hip replacement (using Large Diameter Head) was performed , which relieved my hip pain and corrected my shortening and limp.
I was 72 years old, a retired person when I was operated on my left knee. I was having lot or problems so much so the pain was unbearable and i was totally unfit to move. I was operated at Rockland Hospital by Dr. Biren Nadkarni,who is an experienced and very well qualified orthopaedic surgeon and my left knee was replaced. Thereafter I am leading quite a normal life. Many a friends and relative who know me dont even believe that my knee is replaced, I am quite satisfied and have no hesitation in recomending him to all those patients having such problems.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Dr. Biren Nadkarni on the behalf of my mother Mrs. Bimla Devi. He is incredible. He really listens to the patients. He is very caring and compassionate. He performed a Total Knee Replacement surgery on my mother and did an amazing job. I feel so very blessed and fortunate to have had him perform the surgery. I would eagerly recommend him to anybody when given the chance. Every time when I look at my mother, I find my mom looking better and a much happier person. Once again, I really want to thank Dr. Nadkarni for treating my mother.
I had so much problem in my both knees for the past 20 years. I have been treated by so many doctors and hospitals but couldn't get relief from anywhere.I had acute and unbearable pain in both my knees and almost lost hope of getting recovery from this problem.Then I met with Dr. Biren from Orthonova Hospital. He started my treatment and suggested us to go through with both knee replacements. We did that and after a successful operation now i dont have any problem in my knees.I can walk miles now. His support and efforts did a miracle. I really want to thank him.
