Physiotherapy is a treatment method that focuses on the science of movement which helps a person restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion as well as overall well-being by addressing the person’s underlying physical issues. Physiotherapy makes a huge difference in a patient’s ability to live an active, healthy lifestyle. For many people undergoing rehabilitation, disabled as well as chronically-ill people and senior citizens, this treatment is the key to restoring their level of physical function that permits independent living.
The scope of physiotherapy includes pain reduction, improvement of joint mobility, increase in strength and coordination and cardio-respiratory function improvement. Be it a person recovering from a chronic illness, sports injury or an accident, physiotherapy is a part of their rehabilitation program.
